Top 10 NBA Playoff Tuesday Takeaways

10) Dallas may have finally found a first-round team they can beat

9) The Hawks' strategy of letting Dwight Howard utterly demolish them is, at least, something they can consistently achieve

8) Amar'e Stoudemire and Chauncey Billups both missed Game 2, allowing Carmelo Anthony to finally fulfill his destiny as a tragic hero

7) Joe Johnson going 6 for 15 with five turnovers is fine, since it's not as if the Hawks are locked into him for an absurd amount of time and money

6) When you are relying on Jared Jeffries to get a stop on Kevin Garnett, then score down low in crunch time, you really can't expect good things to happen

5) It's totally unfair that the Mavericks are using the younger Jason Kidd, rather than the crappy broken-down old 2011 model

4) It turns out that the Knicks do have worse defensive player at point guard

3) The Blazers shot 48.5% from the floor and made 7 three pointers, and still lost by 12, mostly because the Mavs refused to ever turn the ball over

2) Bill Walker went 0 for 11 in 33 minutes and was +10, proving once and for all that you can not pay attention to plus / minus ratings in basketball

1) Kidd and Peja Stojakovic combined for 39 points on 15 of 24 shooting, proving once and for all that Mark Cuban has a TARDIS
