NBA Obsessed - NBA Basketball News

Iverson puts a nail in Maverick coffin

by james on March 28th, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Dallas is hanging by a thread.

19 games after trading twice for Jason Kidd, the Mavericks are 10 - 9 in those games, but have zero victories against winning teams. Zero.

Now they are missing Dirk Nowitzki with leg and ankle injuries.

How ironic they had to face the Nuggets, the very team that may put them out of the playoffs. The Nuggets are the 9th team in an 8 team playoff bracket. They want in, bad!

Allen Iverson can feel it.

Allen Iverson added 31 points for the Nuggets, who are a half-game behind Golden State for the eighth and final playoff spot, and one game behind the Mavericks. The Warriors visit the Pepsi Center on Saturday night for another big matchup.

“That game’s bigger than this game,” suggested Anthony. source

Nene returns

In a rather important side note, Nene returned from his bout with cancer and played.

Your intrepid author is currently fighting cancer and it is an ordeal, believe me. For Nene to step back out on the floor is an inspiration for everyone. You cannot believe how much cancer saps your strength. Not just your physical strength, but your emotional and mental strength as well.

“Everybody was excited to see Nene back out there, just to see him back in his uniform, seeing him smile again after the stuff he’s been through,” said Carmelo Anthony, who scored 32 points and keyed the decisive run in the Nuggets’ fourth straight win.

Nene had been out since Jan. 11, and it’s been just over a month since he underwent chemotherapy.

Chemo wipes you out. Congratulations to Nene. He played for 77 seconds. It could be a long time before he is at full strength.
