Bet they got a "speech" during halftime... What do you think?
Hell yes they got a "speech" during halftime, and they should have come out with more. They should have expected the Mavs to come out smokin' and they either could not or did not match said intensity. It is up to the players to execute their plan and to get their heads in the game. It sux that they did not come out ready to attack, and they should have been ready to do that. That was very disappointing to me, and yet, they were still right there. had they come to play from the tipoff, this would have been a different game.
