Miami vs Dallas Part 2,3,4,5,& 6...

I just read how Dallas hasn't lost in Miami since their playoff defeat there four years ago. They have a lot of painful memories of that loss and still try to stick it to them. And their record against Miami since then has been very, very good. And basketball is a game of motivation and focus.

Dallas simply cares a lot about winning against Miami, to try to ease the pain of that defeat. So I can't help but think that it would have been a good bet to go with Dallas against Miami. And in general any team that gains supremacy over an opponent who handed them a bitter post-season loss, will consistently deliver victories against them. Being the better team, it is a matter of effort and focus. The painful memory will ensure both.

This is a formula that could be applied to the future.
