Dirk’s Finger Means Trouble For Mavs

June 02, 2011 By: Katchop Category: NBA

Dirk Nowitzki’s injured left middle finger could be a big factor in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Not since Johnny Cash's classic photo was taken has the media focused on a middle finger like they have with Dirk Nowitzki's injury.

From The Chicago Sun Times

Nowitzki paid the price in the Dallas Mavericks’ 92-84 loss in Game 1 of the Finals. With the Mavs trailing 77-73 with 3:44 to play, Nowitzki tried to strip Chris Bosh in the lane. He thought he got all ball. Instead, he was called for a foul, Bosh hit two free throws and Nowitzki tore the tendon.

‘‘I was kind of talking to the referee about the play,’’ Nowitzki said, ‘‘and the next thing you know . . . I’m looking down, and my finger was bent. I couldn’t straighten it. It was a freakish play.’’
