Canuck Amuck

Redonkulous opening game of the Western Finals last night.

Devin Harris' 3-point-play at 3:43 gave the Mavs a seemingly insurmountable 9-point lead.

That's when the NBA's first Canadian hippie MVP/anti-war activist took over. 3 minutes, 10 points, and a perfectly executed pick-and-roll assist later, the Suns were up a point.

After a Mavs turnover and a missed Suns shot, the surprising Harris (30 points) threw the dagger with a 16-footer from the right wing with 4-seconds left.

Only it wasn't the last dagger.

The Suns' Boris Diaw posted up Jerry Stackhouse on the inbounds play and nailed the real game-winner.

121-118 Suns, and a promise of more thrills to come in this old-school (i.e., offense a-plenty) series.
