I really can't enjoy it much, because in the playoffs for some reason you're always on edge," Nowitzki said. "You don't sleep much. You think basketball 24/7. I can enjoy it hopefully next week when we're on vacation.
Now, I can certainly enjoy last night's win, and I get the sense that DFW is going to be in a great mood this morning. But I found this morning as I woke up that I'm unable to completely soak up the win, knowing how hard that last win will be. Today seems to be the first time that most people here in town truly believe that the Mavericks may pull this off, and there is still this uneasy undercurrent.
Enough about us, though. Having a steady hand leading the charge is a terrific feeling, and quotes like this from the tone setter and the MVP of the playoffs have to make Mavs fans comfortable with their team's mindset as they look to pass that one final enormous hurdle.
