Preseason, Dallas Mavericks host Orlando Magic

Theme: Neuroticfish's cover, "They're Coming To Take Me Away"
Game Info: Click.

Overall, not the most auspicious debut. Field goal percentage just this side of bloody disgusting, our newest and most exciting FNG didn't play because of a calf injury, Dirk couldn't hit the broadside of a barn (to be fair, he got to the line plenty), Superman got an invitation to get the fuck out partway through the third, said invitation extended to Dampier shortly thereafter, an activity that normally takes a couple of hours took nearly three due to 62 (!) total fouls, and because of a miscommunication between me and a DART guy I missed my train and didn't get home until after midnight.

Welcome to exhibition basketball.

And tomorrow the debate begins -- which hurts more? Getting kicked in the Gortats or pounded in the Bass?

Final: 110-105, Magic
