Great finish in Dallas, as the Mavs got a big win over the Spurs. Rondo fills a missing piece. Really like the Mavs' core.

Mike Monroe

Gallant effort by 8 #Spurs in Dallas but they did not handle crunch time; 3 straight turnovers allowed #Mavericks to claim 99-93 win

Earl K. Sneed

FINAL: @Dallas Mavericks 99, SPurs 93; 38 pts (13 in the 4th) for Monta Ellis. 6 pts, 7 rebs & 9 assists for Rondo in his debut. #DALvsSAS

Tim MacMahon

Final: Mavs 99, short-handed Spurs 93. Monta Ellis scores 11 of his season-high tying 38 in final 3:31. Rajon Rondo line: 6-7-9.

Sean Highkin

lol I forgot Richard Jefferson was on the Mavs

Dan McCarney

Only took the Mavericks 46 plus minutes, at home, but they just might have put the Spurs down for good. Up 4, 1:29 left.

Earl K. Sneed

9 straight @Dallas Mavericks pts for Monta Ellis before that tip-in by Parsons. Mavs lead 97-93 with 1:29 left. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Wow. Belinelli with the and-one score over Dirk. FT coming and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout with 3:52 left and down 88-86. #DALvsSAS

Adi Joseph

By the way if you're doing anything else, turn on Mavs-Spurs.

Dan McCarney

Great weakside steal by Harris. Negates likely bucket for BAYNES, Mavs convert at the other end to climb within 2. 5:21 left...

Earl K. Sneed

Devin to Monta on the break. @Dallas Mavericks trail 84-82, though. #DALvsSAS

Alex Kennedy

Many of Rajon Rondo's former teammates say it takes awhile to get used to his passes. They catch players off guard. Mavs need time to jell.

Sean Highkin

I'm only ever watching mavs games from now on

Jeff Wade

Mavs desperately trying to create quicker tempo here

Earl K. Sneed

6:29 left and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 81-80. 25 pts for Monta Ellis, 4 pts, 7 rebs & 8 assists for Rondo. #DALvsSAS

Sean Highkin

Dude the Mavs broadcast just played "2112" overture as bumper music again @DewNO

Tim MacMahon

Mavs used to go with 3 guards a lot during the Jason Kidd days. Rolling with it now: Devin Harris, Monta Ellis, Rajon Rondo.

Jeff McDonald

Mavs are gonna get their first lead since the 1Q on a technical foul shot. Pop probably wants that one back.

Mike Monroe

#Mavs will have a technical shot for chance at 1st lead over #Spurs since 1st quarter after Pop was zapped for arguing charge call on Daye

Michael Scotto

Rajon Rondo made a nice assist in transition. Dallas Mavericks fans will get used to this on a nightly basis. VIDEO: vine.co/v/OXOA3DxpHmJ

Mark Followill

Two big 3s late in 3rd by Devin Harris, he has 13 off bench. Monta has 25. Spurs lead Mavs 77-75 after 3 on TXA21

Mike Monroe

Everyone who thought #Spurs would take 2-point lead into 4th quarter vs. #Mavericks stand up and stomp your feet #ICantHearYou

Jeff McDonald

I mean, if you had told the Mavs before the game they'd be within 2 of the defending NBA champions heading to the 4Q, they'd take it, right?

Tim MacMahon

End 3Q: Short-handed Spurs 77, Mavs 75. Rajon Rondo 4 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists. Monta Ellis 25 points, 1 assist.

Dan McCarney

Austin, er, San Antonio Spurs up 77-75 through 3 against Rajon Rondo and the Dallas Mavericks.

Earl K. Sneed

Monta to Devin AGAIN for three, and the @Dallas Mavericks head into the 4th down 77-75. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

Since nobody else seems to want to score, Monta may have to get a season-high for the #Mavs to win tonight. His season-high is 38.

Mike Monroe

Don't say anything, but #Spurs are perfect from foul line vs. #Mavs, now 18-18 with 1:42 left in 3rd in Dallas

John Ireland

finish with either no Spurs or no Mavs. Klay/Conley don't get in. Here's my guess: Kobe, Curry, Blake, Durant, M. Gasol(voted in) (2/3)

Mico Halili

Hanep. The Mavs have a marketing tie-up with Uber for free rides to games: mavs.com/uber

Earl K. Sneed

Devin with a much-needed three...@Dallas Mavericks within four. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Baynes scores inside and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout, trailing 66-59 with 3:36 left in the 3rd. #DALvsSAS

Dan McCarney

Mavs tie it up at 59, Spurs score 7 straight to push back ahead late in third quarter.

Jeff McDonald

Give the Mavs tons of credit. Really hanging in against the defending NBA champions, down only seven with 3:38 to go in the third quarter.

Mike Monroe

Pop going all Norman Dale vs. #Mavs, zoning, calling plays every trip, slowing pace; look for the picket fence next

Earl K. Sneed

4 pts, 7 rebs & 6 assists for Rondo now in his @Dallas Mavericks debut. Mavs trail 59-56 with 5:49 in the 3rd. #DALvsSAS

Gary Lee

Kobe Bryant talked about fatigue, loss to the Thunder without Kevin Durant and Rajon Rondo being traded to the Mavs. lakersnation.com/video-kobe-tal…

Dwain Price

Rondo's 1st basket, and points, as a #Mavs player came on a goaltending call at the 7:59 mark of the 3rd period.

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo with his 1st two pts as a @Dallas Mavericks on a goaltending transition score. #DALvsSAS

Dan McCarney

Spurs, Mavs currently having a competition to see who can pass the ball worse.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk is now 2 of 11. @Dallas Mavericks trail 53-48 with 8:17 in the 3rd. #DALvsSAS

Robert Morales

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he wishes @Rajon Rondo, traded this week to Western Conference Mavericks, "would have stayed East."

Mark Followill

Spurs playing a lot of zone and holding Mavs to 38% shooting. Monta Ellis has 18 points but Mavs down 47-42 at half on TXA21

Tim MacMahon

ICYMI: Mavs' long search for a PG ends with Rajon Rondo, who reminds them a lot of Jason Kidd. es.pn/1AD0r42

Mike Monroe

Everyone who had #Spurs up by 5 on #Mavericks at halftime post pre-game proof

Tim MacMahon

Half: Short-handed Spurs 47, Mavs 42. Rajon Rondo (0 points, 5 assists, 6 rebounds) looks good. Dirk (4 points, 1-8 FG) does not.

Jeff McDonald

Scrappy, never-say-die Mavs score five quick points in final 35 seconds, trail defending champs by five at half. Have to admire their guts.

Earl K. Sneed

At the half, the @Dallas Mavericks trail 47-42. 18 pts for Monta Ellis. 6 rebs & 5 assists for Rondo. #DALvsSAS

Mike Monroe

Refs definitely giving benefit of a few doubts to short-handed #Spurs vs. #Mavs ... last call on Dirk very iffy

Earl K. Sneed

2:49 left in the half and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 39-33. 15 pts for Ellis. Rondo is scoreless but has 6 rebs & 5 assists. #DALvsSAS
