A clearly frustrated Rick Carlisle took the podium last night after the Thunder beat his Mavs 102-99. A reporter asks Carlisle about a run in between Dirk Nowitzki and Kendrick Perkins and Carlisle responds in no uncertain terms that there is some dirty play going on. And it needs to stop.
As you may have heard, the Thunder defeated the Mavericks with a Game 1 buzzer-beater from Kevin Durant on Saturday night.
