Mavs finish game on 13-4 run, pull away from Spurs to win 99-93. Monta takes over, no surprise. He matches season hi with 38, 13 in 4th.
Sees Mavs beat Spurs in Rondo debut. Thinks impressive. Checks box score. Realizes Pop rested everyone. Wonders what Pop could do w/ Sixers.
Fun fact: Babies born five days ago have never experienced a Spurs win in their lifetime.
The Spurs have had two losing streaks of 4+ games in the last four seasons. The Knicks have had three 4+ game losing streaks this season.
No Parker, Duncan, Leonard, Ginobli, Green or Splitter for the Spurs
Great finish in Dallas, as the Mavs got a big win over the Spurs. Rondo fills a missing piece. Really like the Mavs' core.
The Spurs dropped their fourth consecutive game for the first time since March 2011.
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.
Oh, right, the Spurs are sitting their four best players.
I'm watching Dallas vs SA on League Pass. Spurs B Team of course. Yet both of these teams are playing at a level the Cavs haven't shown.
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.
Belinelli converts the three-point play, Spurs up 89-86 with less than 4 mins left.
You could probably put the Sixers in Spurs uniforms & they would play a bunch of nail-biters against the top teams in the West.
By the way if you're doing anything else, turn on Mavs-Spurs.
Leaving Manu and Duncan home paying off in this way: Spurs are 23 of 23 from foul line.
Oof, Dallas absolutely dissects Spurs zone, with the coup de grace coming on Rondo's bounce pass to Chandler for the stuff. Tie game.
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
End 3Q: Short-handed Spurs 77, Mavs 75. Rajon Rondo 4 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists. Monta Ellis 25 points, 1 assist.
Austin, er, San Antonio Spurs up 77-75 through 3 against Rajon Rondo and the Dallas Mavericks.
7 reserves: Harden, CP3, Russ, Lillard, ADavis, Aldridge, Dirk. Can't cut a voted in guy. Could no Spurs really make it? Can't see it
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)
Mavs tie it up at 59, Spurs score 7 straight to push back ahead late in third quarter.
Spurs, Mavs currently having a competition to see who can pass the ball worse.
Since about halftime of the Grizzlies game, the Spurs have played with a whole lot of guts. Eventually, might get a W to show for it.
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
El equipo B de San Antonio le gana en el primer tiempo de Dallas, visitante, 47-42. Buen juego de conjunto de los Spurs. Marca registrada.
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.
It's raining meatballs in Dallas. Belinelli up to 14, Spurs by 9.
Spurs still holding on to 39-33 lead late in 2Q in Dallas. The Construction Worker leads the team with 12. http://t.co/oaJdgvBiuw
