They say that history repeats itself, but who would have thought that it would happen so fast in the NBA Western conference finals? Just two nights after the Dallas Mavericks rallied from a 15-point deficit with five minutes to play to steal game four in overtime, lightning struck again as they outscored the Oklahoma City Thunder 15-6 down the final stretch to win game five 100-86 and advance to the NBA finals. The Mavericks outscored Oklahoma City 32-8 combined over the final five minutes of regulation in their final two sports betting victories, and once again it was about more than their All Star forward dominating.
As was the case all series, Nowitzki’s play helped open things up for the rest of his teammates and once again they did not let him down. Shawn Marion exploded for 26 points and grabbed right rebounds, while Jason Terry and JJ Barea once again hit double digit scoring figures off the pay per head bench. Those two combined for 26 points and six assists on the night, as once again the Mavericks’ bench did not let the starters down.
With the Mavericks moving on to the championship series the trifecta is now complete, with the World Series, Super Bowl, and now the NBA Finals all having to go through Dallas. The MLB betting Texas Rangers couldn’t get the job done when they had the chance, and it is now up the Nowitzki and company to bring a championship team back to the city. The setting will be familiar with a rematch of the 2006 NBA finals against the Miami Heat a good possibility, only this time around the Mavericks feel as though they have all of the tools they need to get the job done on the biggest stage.
