Moving Pictures: Team Defense

Posted by Rob Mahoney on November 9, 2009 under Video | 29 Comments to Read

Dirk Nowitzki’s incredible one-man fourth quarter comeback against the Utah Jazz will go down as one of the finest performances in franchise history, but Dirk’s brilliance overshadowed another impressive showing by the Mavs’ defense. In the first installment of Moving Pictures, we’ll take a look at some of the key stops Dallas made during their fourth quarter run, the very stops that enabled Dirk and the Mavs to pull off an unlikely victory.

    This is great game breakdown. Throw some madden tv arrows in and it would be perfect. More of these and you may wind up being my home page:) go mavs!

  • Victor

  • adam

    nice feature. really well done. EITS can make anyone look good, though. ;)

  • 1st

    Very nice. How long did it take to make the video?

    Ah, great. Now you’ve just upped the game. Damn you.

    GREAT work Rob, funny to hear your voice for the first time :) good quality,nice background music, great topic / clips. But I figured you should speak closer to the microphone (and no,this doesnt work out if I simply increase the volume). Besides that: great effort!

      Thanks for all the love, everyone. Much appreciated.

      @Phil: Noted.

      @1st: Took awhile, but mostly because I needed to figure out iMovie and run through the voiceovers a few times. Hopefully this process will be faster and faster, though.

      @Jack: I wanted to do just that, and I’m looking into it. Could take some tinkering, but hopefully I’ll figure out a way.

    Nicely done video.

    Nice, not so sure about the music though, a little too “where caring happens”. One thing this makes me think is we need to keep Damp as the starter even after Gooden is back. With Howard in the starting lineup we should have enough offense and Damp does a ton of little things that help the team win.

    Great stuff!

    Especially liked the scene with Terry. Maybe he has improved defensively after all…

    Agree that the vid is great; the speed was just about perfect. Enough time to take in everything without need for pauses.
    Thanks for your work!
