2011 NBA Playoffs, Mavericks Vs. Lakers: Reaction To Game 2 From Mavs Money Ball

The Mavericks have a commanding 2-0 lead as their second round series moves back to Dallas, with a chance to close out the two-time defending champs without having to head back to Los Angeles. But let's not get too far ahead ourselves, and enjoy this Game 2 win. And nobody is enjoying it more than the guys over at our Mavericks blog, Mavs Money Ball. They conclude their wrapup of the game with a plea to the other fans to make Game 3 on Friday an intimidating atmosphere for the Lakers.

Dallas looked like the aggressors for a majority of the game, even when the score was tied. Everyone worked hard on offense, but Dirk worked noticeably harder while setting picks that freed his teammates and himself for better shots. The Lakers fought back at the end, but it was too late. Dallas stunned Kobe and company while wresting a 2-0 series lead before going home. Game 3 is in Dallas on Friday. It had better be loud.
