Full disclosure — this whole piece is written way before tip off. There is a less than 50% chance I was awake by the time the final buzzer sounded. But most assuredly, someone won and someone lost.

If the Golden State Warriors won, then they are making their sixth trip to the Finals in eight seasons. It will be their first without a trace of either one or both LeBron James and Kevin Durant playing a role.

If the Dallas Mavericks won, then they did so on the road taking themselves from a 3-0 deficit to a respectable (and threatening 3-2).

What happened last night?

And how do you feel about it?
