DALLAS — In 11 previous Playoff seasons Dirk Nowitzki has never been swept.
That streak could end Saturday night if the Dallas Mavericks don’t find a way to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4. If a sweep happens, Thunder guard Derek Fisher warned the Mavs to be prepared for it to sting beyond this summer.
Having been there before,and I don’t know if it only lasts for one summer,” Fisher said Friday. “You just never forget.
Fisher said he still thinks about last season’s sweep with the Lakers at the hands of a Mavs team that was played brilliantly in that series, but looks quite a bit different today.
