As the Dallas Mavericks led the Los Angeles Lakers 3-0, many people were saying that the Lakers would win game 4 and continue on with the playoffs until they eliminate the Dallas Mavericks. But, that is unfortunately not true. The Dallas Mavericks eliminated the Los Angeles Lakers 4-0 in the Western Conference Semifinals. The Lakers were very mad as they got out the court and also, it was Phil Jackson’s last time coaching the Los Angeles Lakers. Even he was disappointed as he got of the court.
Speaking of game 4, the Dallas Mavericks became the first team to score 23 three pointers in a playoff, and Jason Terry became the first maverick to score 9 three pointers in a single playoff game. Everything ent well for the Dallas Mavericks. They had all their players comfortable at shooting from the three point range. And by having that, they ended up sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers in a 4-0 lead against them in the playoffs.
