The No-Hitter or The Near-Perfect Shooting Performance, Which Effort was More Impressive

NBA Playoffs 2011: Dee: Which Performance Was More Impressive?

Experts will always tell you in baseball, good pitching beats good hitting. Well, on October 6, 2010, the Phillies Roy Halladay proved dominant pitching can embarrass solid hitting.

The San Francisco Giants would go on to win the World Series last year, but Halladay's performance was spectacular, joining Don Larson as the only pitcher to ever leave a team hit-less in the post season.

Tuesday in Dallas, Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki scored 48 points sinking all of his 24 free throw attempts along with 12-15 shots from the field in the team's 121-112 Game 1 victory over the Oklahoma City.

Let charged.fm set you up with great seats for tonight's Game 2.

For you statistician's out there, that is a "true-shooting percentage" of 93%.

No-hitters in baseball, of course, are rare, but what Dirk did the other night to the Thunder is how I like my dry aged steak...ice cold.

The good news for the Thunder was that despite the performance, they were still in the game with less than 5 minutes to play, and Kevin Durant wasn't too shabby himself, scoring a team-high 40 points. Look for the Thunder to have a real chance to win Game 2 tonight, if Russell Westbrook can turn up the dial.
