Imagine the ramifications if, perchance, the Warriors eliminate the Mavericks tonight. First off, poor Dirk Nowitzki might never show his face in public again, or at least not around his coach. We'll have proof that the Warriors sold their souls to the devil. And Don Nelson will have his final, brutal revenge on Mark Cuban. Perhaps Blog Maverick will go dark merely out of shame.

That said, 3-1 is not an insurmountable deficit, and the Mavericks have two games at home. The story of the NBA season could do down tonight. We kind of can't wait.
