Steve Nash’s odyssey for a championship is well known in these parts, but let’s not forget about his old running mate Shawn Marion’s quest now that the Matrix is four wins away from...

The most valuable lessons one learns in life are often the most painful. And so maybe it will be that one day the Thunder will look back at their devastating collapse in the 4th quarter of game 4 at home Monday night as the painful but necessary lesson that eventually propelled them to a championship. For now though, it leaves them in a position that looks hopeless, as they will have to win the next three games against the Mavericks, two of them in Dallas, to win the Western Conference.

Notes:

Zorgon at Welcome to Loud City looks for optimism in the example of the 2006 Phoenix Suns, who overcame a 3-1 deficit to the Lakers to win that series.

It's hard to believe that the Mavs were once widely criticized for giving up Devin Harris for Jason Kidd.

The LA Times gives five thoughts on the Lakers' hiring of Mike Brown as head coach.

Tonight's game:

Thunder at Mavs, 6PM PDT, ESPN. Mavs lead series 3-1.

The Thunder failed spectacularly in their must-win game last night. Can the Bulls do a better job in Miami tonight and even the series? It's easy to see what the Bulls need to accomplish to pull it off: they'll have to score more efficiently, and league MVP Derrick Rose will have to lead the way. Rose is making only 31% of his 3s and 40% of his FGs overall so far in this series. Barring a few supernova performances from him, it's hard to imagine the Bulls beating the Heat three more times.

Notes:

NBA.com's John Schuhmann has some ideas on how Rose can get back on track.

Chris Bosh has been disrespected by NBA fans everywhere, including on this fine site. He's hoping his excellent game 3 performance will help to silence the critics.

The treatment of Charles Barkley by Heat fans has been turrible, just turrible. Even though Barkley doesn't seem to mind, TNT has moved him out of harm's way.

Tonight's game:

Bulls at Heat, 5:30 PDT, TNT. Heat lead series 2-1.
