wut does it mean when they say the rox took home court advantage away from the mavs?


If the first round does go to game 7, then both Mavs and rox will have 3 homecourt games. With rox winning game 1, they will go home 1-1 at least. If somehow rox can win both games at home (never an advantage on the rox's part), Mavs will face elamination at home then on the road. From that point, Mavs no longer have the home court advantage.

the 6th pic from top was clearly a reach-in foul. the play occured in 1st quarter but Dampier never was called for a foul. No so surprisingly, Dampier ended his night with only 2 fouls, where he received both fouls in the 1st half.

so dallas still have 4 home games even though home court advantage is taken away :(

dude i just told you what it is

the easiest way to understand home court advantage is that it means that if you win your home games you win the series

the order of the games do not change. however since most teams are significantly better at home than on the road it means the team with the home court advantage is much more likely to win the series

Dallas will have 3 more home games if, IF they go to game 7. It goes like this for rox:
game 1&2 on the road; game 3&4 at home; game 5 on the road; game 6 back home; game 7 away on the road. Of course, all game 5,6,and 7 will take place only if needed.
