Mavs eliminate Lakers, sweep Jackson to retirement

Jason Terry tied an NBA playoff record with nine
3-pointers and the Dallas Mavericks matched another postseason mark
with 20 3s, powering them to a 122-86 victory over the Lakers on
Sunday and a sweep of their second-round series. The victory puts
the Mavs in the Western Conference finals, ends the latest Lakers
dynasty and sends their coach Phil Jackson into retirement.
This game was over before halftime, with the Mavericks tying an
NBA playoff record with 11 3-pointers in the first half. Terry
alone outscored the Lakers 20-16 in the second quarter. The Lakers
were so frustrated that Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum were ejected
for throwing vicious cheap shots 45 seconds apart early in the
fourth quarter.
