This Damian Lillard commercial never gets old. I crack up every time CWebb turns around

Sean Highkin

Can’t wait for that McBob forearm to be made into a “LeBron shows pain after being elbowed, hockey player loses teeth” meme.

David Hardisty

Clutch the Bear just shoved Robin Lopez. It's probably going to be that kind of game. Game 2 about to tip off.

There have been times last few years where Heat made show to complain about head shots to LeBron. Tonight they have a strong case.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lose two points at timeout break. Duncan's first shot of the half overturned by review. Didn't beat the shot clock. Trail no 68-59.

Rockets stick with usual lineup, but will use Asik, Howard together again: blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Shawn Marion made his first 7 shots tonight, only one miss now. 18 pts for him and Dallas leads 68-61 w/ 7 mins left 3Q in SA on @TXA21

The Heat will win the game, the Bobcats should win some respect.

Vincent Goodwill

CDR, you're from the D! You can't let someone Debo your lunch like that!

Marion with his 1st miss after seven straight makes. Still, Monta puts the @dallasmavs up 68-61 with 6:51 in the 3rd. #DALatSAS

Dwight Jaynes

I’m not fond of Anthem singers/performers who make the thing about themselves. Not the right thing.

Marion had 8 pts Sunday. He has 18 tonight. Monta had 11 Sunday. He has 15 tonight. Dirk had 11 Sunday and has 11 tonight.

Brett Pollakoff

Let’s review the clear path possibility for a half hour, but never mind the forearm to LeBron’s neck.

Fran Blinebury

Did somebody say 9/11? Rudy Giuliani courtside in Houston.

Dan McCarney

Giving up a transition layup is going to get a timeout form Popovich at least 80 percent of the time. We get one now, Mavs up 68-61.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wade traps w/ Chalmers, takes the ball from Douglas-Roberts. Miami will escape.

Tim Bontemps

Steve Popper

Only way that could not be a flagrant is if officials thought McRoberts was protecting himself putting his arms in front. Still should be

Michael Dugat

Gonna pretend that was an alley-oop from Ellis to Dalembert ... because I want to.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Rough minute for LeBron: clubbed in the throat by one of the Bee Gees, misses 1 of 2 FTs & a turnover. 20.6 left. Charlotte down 4, w/ ball.

Not really sure where the play on the ball was on that McBob foul.

Robby Kalland

So...wait. We're not even going to look at that as a flagrant?!

Kevin Pelton

Brett Pollakoff

That should be an ejection. No play on the ball, forearm to the throat.

Don't think Dalembert played after he came out initially in the first quarter until the opening of 3rd. Weird. Thought he looked good.

Tim Bontemps

Have so much respect for Al Jefferson. After watching Joe Johnson up close last year, I know how tough plantar fasciitis is to play through.

Sean Highkin

Jefferson can’t move.

John Schuhmann

Very impressive that Walker told McRoberts to rotate out to the corner as he positioned himself to take the charge from Wade.

Dwain Price

Kawhi Leonard has yet to take a shot or score. And the #Spurs went into Game 2 thinking he had an advantage over Monta.

Earl K. Sneed

Parker gets in the lane and feeds Duncan to start the 3rd. Not what the @dallasmavs want to see in the second half. #DALatSAS

Robby Kalland

Big Al! Get it Kittehs!

Ethan J. Skolnick

Al Jefferson shotputs it in, hobbles away. Hell of an effort.

Negatives: Spurs have 57.6 FG% and 62.5 3PT% and almost certainly will curb the TOs.

Jeff McDonald

Quit turning ball over every other possession, play modicum of D, get Kawhi involved & not fouling all over the place .. and Spurs are fine.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili with 17 points, 6 for 7 at the half. All 10 during 10-0 run that cut Dallas lead from 15 to 5 at the break.

Paul Jones

Jeff Caplan

Did Mavs just blow it in the final couple minutes? Led 56-41 w 2:31 left in the 1st half. Go to halftime up 56-51. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

#Spurs close half on 10-0 run. Mavs led 56-41 with 2:33 left after a 3 by Dirk.

Michael Dugat

Definitely some questionable calls, but Mavs can't fall apart reacting to them.

Earl K. Sneed

At the half, the @dallasmavs lead 56-51 after leading by as many as 15. 13 pts apiece for Monta and Marion. #DALatSAS

Mike Monroe

#Spurs close 1st half on 10-0 run, 8 from Luca Ginobili's Daddy, to cut #Mavs lead to 56-51.

Jeff Wade

Spurs just snuffed out all of the Mavs momentum

Jeff McDonald

After trailing by as many as 15, Spurs close to 56-51 at half. Manu tips in Patty Mills miss at the horn.

Mike Prada

That’s why Manu Ginobili is great. Nothing’s working and he took over a two-minute stretch to get the Spurs back in it.

Paul Flannery

It was fun while it lasted, Dallas.

Kevin Pelton

The Spurs had more TOs in the first half (15) than 45 of their 82 games this season.

Michael Dugat

That's a shame. Momentum fully in Spurs favor now.

Dave McMenamin

Ginobili's putback caps a 10-0 run by the Spurs heading into the half. Mavs lead 56-51. Manu has 17 pts on 6-for-7 shooting

Dan McCarney

Great hustle by Ginobili, races down court to tip in Mills' missed transition layup just before the buzzer. Spurs close half on 10-0 run.

Jeff McDonald

If the Spurs come back and win this game, blame Manu Ginobili. Just playing with what's left of his hair on fire to close the half.

John Schuhmann

Did Battier retire already?

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead at the half 56-51.

Michael Dugat

Just watched the ref on the replay. He didn't even turn his head to Manu until after the shot missed ... saw him on the ground, made call.

Dave McMenamin

Big swing here. Mavs go up by 15 on a Dirk 3. Spurs follow with 5 quick pts from Manu/Tim, Dirk gets T'd up, Manu adds 3 FTs. SAS down 7

Dan McCarney

And now a T on Nowitzki after Ginobili draws foul on a 3-pointer.

Earl K. Sneed

Tech on Dirk with 1:38 left in the half. #DALatSAS

Michael Dugat

That's a trash call by the ref with the worst view from across the court. Reacted to Manu flopping, not actually seeing the foul.

Jeff McDonald

The rare foul call that has both teams muttering, because it came so late. ... and then Dirk gets t'eed up, utters All-American curse word.

Jeff Caplan

Carlisle waves his arms up: "Flopped."

Earl K. Sneed

That's a super late call. Wow.

Dan McCarney

Oh wow...Spurs caught a HUGE break on that foul.

Michael Dugat

That was a crazy little shot from Duncan

Earl K. Sneed

.@dallasmavs held their largest lead at 15 after that Dirk 3. Dirk has hit 4 of his last 5 after starting 0-of-6. #DALatSAS

Mike Prada

Mavs were an aggressive trapping team on pick and rolls all season. Now, they’re hanging way back on pick and rolls. It’s surprising SA.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs sputtering through 1st half w/o foul-plagued Leonard underscores his importance. Absence doesn't explain a million turnovers.

Jeff Caplan

Spurs turnovers (15) now equal to their FGs (15) and almost equal to their deficit (14) with 2:56 left in the 1st half.

Israel Gutierrez

It's like the Western Conference is showing off.

Royce Young

Monta Ellis playing defense, creating offense, the Mavs are up double digits. cbssports.com/nba/gametracke… twitpic.com/e1wmdt

Marc Stein

Hilite of pre-game COY presentation that @Jeff McDonald posits has jinxed Spurs was Pop handing the trophy to Ime Udoka as fast as he could

Mike Monroe

All who thought #Spurs could shoot 60 pct. and hold @Dirk Nowitzki to 6 pts. and be down 12 late in 1st 1/2, raise your hand.

Jeff Wade

Y'all liking this first half? Hungry dudes at the all-you-can-eat buffet style. Just keep doing all that awesome stuff. #ImSayinThough

Mark Followill

Closing in on halftime, 3 mins left and Dallas leads 51-39 on TXA21. Mavs hitting 52.5% from floor. Dirk has made 3/4 aft missing 1st 6

Jeff McDonald

For all the "Kawhi is the answer to Mavs switching" talk -- he's 0-for-0. Foul trouble obviously looms large there.

Zach Lowe

Rick Carlisle is some kind of wizard. This is unbelievable.

Dwain Price

#Mavs came to play. Maybe they learned from what happened Sunday. Mavs up 51-39 with 2:56 left in the 1st half. And Marion's shooting 2 FTs.

Michael Dugat

Dalembert the only Mavs player with a negative plus/minus. Leonard the only Spurs player with a positive plus/minus.

Shandel Richardson

If the pattern continues, the Heat will go on a 10-0 run now.

Matt Dery

Jordan Danks. Smh.

Earl K. Sneed

Marion will head to the FT line after the stoppage and the @dallasmavs lead 51-39 with 2:56 left in the half. #DALatSAS

Vincent Goodwill

Considering how well the Bobcats are actually competing, I think that conversation about restructuring the playoffs is overblown

Marc Stein

Shawn Marion, meanwhile, is playing his designer socks off. On both ends

Mike Prada

Meanwhile, San Antonio’s conservative strategy defending pick and roll hurts against Dallas. Lets Monta et al build up a head of steam.

Rick Bonnell

CDR goes end-to-end for just second Bobcats transition basket.

Dan McCarney

And now Dirk has made his last two shots...

Earl K. Sneed

That Dirk shot is starting to look a lot more in rhythm now... #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

That 12-pt lead may be the biggest of the season for the #Mavs vs. the #Spurs.

Ira Winderman

Ray Allen is a disaster out there to this point.

Dave McMenamin

The Spurs are shooting 62.5 percent, but trail by 12. Why? They have 15 turnovers leading to 19 Dallas points

Dan McCarney

Spurs have as many TOs (15) as FGs.

Mike Prada

These are unforced Spurs turnovers. Once you get San Antonio out of its normal rhythm, they get really out of sorts.

Jeff McDonald

Pretty much as crap-tastic a first half as the Spurs could hope to muster. All kinds of out of sorts.

Marc Stein

Sloppiest half of Spurs basketball I've ever witnessed in person? It's in the conversation

Erik Gundersen

Monta Ellis have it all.

Dwain Price

What a steal by Monta.

Dan McCarney

Just a reminder, Mavs ranked 22nd in def. efficiency during the RS.

Rick Bonnell

Ray Allen foul averts what would have been shot-clock No. 3.

Shandel Richardson

Ray Allen totally bailed out Henderson there.

Dan McCarney

The Spurs offense right now...good lord.

Rick Bonnell

Looks like Biyombo is out of the rotation. Clifford hinted pre-game he'd turn to Zeller more for offense.

Jeff McDonald

I guess "let the Mavs take a double-digit lead so they can blow it" is as good a strategy as any.

Dwain Price

There's that 10-pt lead again.

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis with the corner 3! @dallasmavs up 47-37. #DALatSAS

Eric Pincus

Bobcats aren't giving up - playing hard - they're not likey to get this series but impressed - Charlotte has a ton of cap room this summer

Earl K. Sneed

Duncan goes 1 of 2 at the FT line. Spurs are 3 of 8 at the charity stripe as a team. #DALatSAS

Michael Dugat

Mavs defense surviving by turnovers alone. Can't count on that pace to continue ... allowing opponent to hit over 70-percent is bad.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs season high turnovers: 22 in W over ATL on Jan. 24; they've got 14 in G. 2 with 5:31 left in 2nd qtr.

Earl K. Sneed

Spurs are shooting 71.4% and the @dallasmavs still lead by six. How? 17 pts off 14 San Antonio turnovers. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Spurs are shooting 71.4% and the @dallasmavs still lead bys ix. How? 17 pts off 14 San Antonio turnovers. #DALatSAS

Jeff McDonald

The Spurs are shooting 71.4% and are down by six. Do you know how difficult that is to do?

Joseph Goodman

Heat 79, Bobcats 72 entering the 4Q. LeBron 10 of 14 for 25 points. Bosh 6 of 8 (4 of 4) for 16 points.

Jeff McDonald

Best thing Spurs can do is get this game to halftime, then regroup. Bad juju/body language right now. Down 42-36.

Jeff Caplan

Spurs = 14 TOs in 18:29. Mavs = 17 of 42 pts off TOs Spurs = 71.4% FG Mavs = 48.6% FG Score = Mavs 42, Spurs 36

Dwain Price

The #Spurs are shooting a sizzling 71.4 percent from the field. But the #Mavs lead 42-36. Mavs have turned 14 SAS turnovers into 17 pts.

Jeff McDonald

Best thing Spurs can do is get this game to halftime, then regroup. Bad body juju/body language right now. Down 42-36.

5:31 left in the half and the @dallasmavs have a 42-36 lead. Keep in mind the Mavs started 1-of-7 and Dirk started 0-of-6. #DALatSAS

Mike Prada

I think the Spurs will get it together in the second half, but Dallas is doing a lot of little things to mess up their rhythm.

Shandel Richardson

Bobcats giving it their all. Still down 7.

Dan McCarney

If Dirk was playing even remotely well, Spurs would be in bad shape right now.

Earl K. Sneed

Gotta love what DeJuan Blair is bringing to this game. Junk it up, young fella. #DALatSAS

Monta gots rhythm tonight

Dan McCarney

Leonard with no points, no shots, 3 fouls in 9 mins. Not what the Spurs were looking for.

Dave McMenamin

That's three fouls on Leonard already with 7:26 remaining in the 2nd Q. He comes out of the game.

Earl K. Sneed

3 fouls on Leonard with 7:26 left in the half. Huge for the @dallasmavs to free up Monta Ellis. #DALatSAS

Dan McCarney

Spurs are destroying Dallas when they don't turn it over, shooting 15 for 21. But 13 TOs in less than 17 mins is pretty ridiculous.

Jeff McDonald

Mavs will be in bonus for final 7:26 of half. Plus Leonard to the bench with third foul. Bad things, man.

Ira Winderman

Al Jefferson's perseverance is, well, remarkable.

Royce Young

The Kitties will NOT die. Charlotte hanging in, down six. cbssports.com/nba/gametracke…

Rick Bonnell

MKG's 18 points a season high. His career high is 25.

Earl K. Sneed

13 San Antonio turnovers now. @dallasmavs have scored 14 pts off those miscues. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

#Mavs missing opportunities to build on their lead.

Michael Dugat

Ellis really sold that one.

Dave McMenamin

Two more turnovers from the Spurs - lazy entry pass, followed by an offensive foul. They have 13 turnovers already. Mavs have 2.

Jonah Ballow

I think you could tie cinder blocks to Big Al's legs and he would still drop 25.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs up to 13 turnovers at 8-minute mark of 2Q.

Shandel Richardson

It's a blowout. It's a close game. It's a blowout.

Earl K. Sneed

Nice. Monta draws a charge on Parker in transition. Great job by Monta getting back and getting positioning. #DALatSAS

Dan McCarney

And TO No. 14, on an offensive foul, as I typed that previous tweet.

Rick Bonnell

Nice spacing in 2-man game between Al Jefferson and Josh McRoberts. Results in a 3.

Joseph Goodman

This is just an inspiring performance by Al Jefferson.
