The game against the Kings on Tuesday had many historic moments.
The biggest one of course was Dirk passing Hakeem Olajuwon for 9th on the all time scoring list, and to become the leading scorer for international players. It had to have been an emotional night for him, given that he watched Olajuwon play while growing up in Germany. This was a big night for us fans to as we got to watch history happen in front of us.
Another moment was the fact that the Mavs came back from the third largest deficit in franchise history. Down 24 at one point the Mavs slowly crawl back into the game in the second. Then explode in the third outscoring the Kings 30-15, with the Mavs third quarter track record this is a surprising statistic especially against a solid Sacramento team. Led by Monta Ellis and his 10 points, along with Chandler Parsons’ 8 points in the third the Mavs took the lead and then coasted to the win in the fourth.
That Parsons scoring could not have come at a better time as he has gone 2-20 from the field in the 2 games before this one. I don’t know what was going on with him but we don’t want to see more of those games out of him. Mark Cuban didn’t invest 46 million in an inconsistent player, Parsons should be okay and going back to putting up 20+ point games on a regular basis.
Tuesday night had many events take place that make us proud to call ourselves MFFLs
