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

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

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.

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

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.

Dwain Price

What a steal by Monta.

Dwain Price

There's that 10-pt lead again.

Earl K. Sneed

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

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

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 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.

Mark Followill

Mid 2nd-Q, Dallas up 42-36 at Spurs in game 2. Mavs get 10 from Monta. Spurs only 2/6 on FTs

Earl K. Sneed

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

Earl K. Sneed

Tony Parker is now 2 of 5 at the FT line. DeJuan Blair is in his head, no? #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Tony P has missed 3 FT.s

Earl K. Sneed

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

Dwain Price

Blair has 4 pts and 3 reb. against his former team in just 8 minutes.

Jeff Caplan

As Spurs shooting percentage rises, now 71.4, their deficit grows, now 5. Mavs 39, Spurs 34.

Earl K. Sneed

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

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.

Earl K. Sneed

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

Earl K. Sneed

Splitter slaps Dirk in the face. Dirk is trying to walk it off. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Harris is now pressuring Parker fullcourt. I love it. Make the man work the entire length of the floor. #DALatSAS

Jeff Caplan

Another strange game in SA. Devin Harris w 8 pts, 2 a in 8 min. Spurs shooting 68% and trailing by 4 (9:16, 2nd). #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Calderon is 0-of-3 with 0 pts and 0 assists in 7 minutes. Harris is 3-of-3 with 8 pts and 3 assists in 8 minutes.

Earl K. Sneed

FT still coming and the @dallasmavs have a 33-30 edge with 9:23 left in the half. Devin Harris with 7 pts off the bench. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

FT still coming and the @dallasmavs have a 33-30 edge with 9:23 left in the half. Devin Harris with 6 pts off the bench. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Spurs still have no answer for Devin Harris. Meanwhile, Dirk has awakened. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

It looks like Devin Harris is headed to the Hall of Fame if he plays every game against the #Spurs.

Earl K. Sneed

.@dallasmavs already have 10 pts off the Spurs' nine turnovers. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

#Mavs have turned 9 #Spurs turnovers into 10 points.

Jeff Caplan

After 1st qtr, Spurs on pace to turn it over 36 times and make 40 FGs. They trail the Mavs, 24-23.

Dwain Price

#Spurs are 3-of-3 on 3's. They were 3-of-17 on 3's in Game 1.

Mark Followill

9 1Q turnovers for San Antonio, Dallas up 24-23 after 1 on TXA21. Mavs fell behind by 7 early before coming back to take edge

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk goes 1-of-7, but the @dallasmavs lead 24-23 after one. 8 pts for Monta Ellis. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

#Mavs were down 11-4, so they finished the period on a 20-12 run. Ellis has 8 pts, Marion has 6 pts and Dalembert has 4 pts and 4 boards.

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead after the first period 24-23.

Earl K. Sneed

.@dallasmavs briefly took the lead but Ginobili hits a 3 and the Spurs have a 23-22 edge. SA 3-of-3 from deep after going 3-of-17 in Game 1.

Dwain Price

Dirk's first good look -- and he makes it.

Dwain Price

#Mavs got to be satisfied with the pace of the game. They're down 23-22 and Dirk is scoreless and has missed all 6 of his shots.

Jeff Caplan

Spurs have matched their 3-point FG total of 3 from all of Game 1. Still a low amount of attempts. 8 TOs killing SA early, lead 23-22.

Earl K. Sneed

Shout out to the Spurs' DJ for playing the instrumental to @common's "The Corner" here at AT&T Center. Much appreciated. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

2 fouls on Brandan Wright with 3:06 left in the 1st. In comes DeJuan Blair to a parade of boos. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Wright gets so high on that shot. The #Spurs can't stop it. He needs 15-20 shots a game. Oops. He's got 2 fouls now. Oh well.

Jeff Caplan

Why do Spurs only have a 3 pt lead when they're shooting 58% and Dal shooting 26%? Spurs 7 FGs, 6 TOs in opening 8:30.

Mark Followill

Slow start like Sunday but a quicker recovery tonight, Dallas has 6 from Monta Ellis & trailing 13-12 in SA w/ 4:11 left 1Q on TXA21

Earl K. Sneed

At least Monta Ellis has it going early. 6 pts for Ellis and the @dallasmavs are within one, 13-12, with 4:11 left in the 1st. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Dirk is 0-of-6 and Ellis is 1-of-3.

Earl K. Sneed

Look at it this way: Dirk is 0 of 6 and the @dallasmavs are still within three. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk is now 0 of 6 and can't get the bunny layup to drop. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Dirk 0-of-5 from the field with no points. Splitter said Dirk didn't look comfortable in Game 1.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk...0 of 5...Calderon...0 of 3... #DALatSAS

Jeff Caplan

Ginobili hops off the bench at 7-min mark, guessing for Green, who has made two bad passes.

Jeff Caplan

Mavs were fortunate in G1 not to get blown out in first half of opening qtr bc Spurs went cold. They have their hands full again.

Jeff Caplan

Dirk starts 0-3 FG against Splitter, well-contested perimeter shots. Spurs 11, Mavs 4. #MAVSatSPURS

Earl K. Sneed

Spurs come out hitting 5 of 7 shots and the @dallasmavs are just 1 of 7, trailing 11-4 with 8:00 left in the 1st. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

0-of-3 start for Dirk, but he is getting decent looks early. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Dirk picking up where he left off Sunday. He's 0-of-3.

Earl K. Sneed

0-of-2 start for Dirk, but he is getting decent looks early. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Calderon misses an open jumper to start the game and then Danny Green hits a 3. Two bad signs of the @dallasmavs early. #DALatSAS

Jeff Caplan

There's Danny Green's first 3 of the series in first minute.

Dwain Price

Popovich just got his NBA Coach of the Year trophy in front of the #Spurs' fans. The whole thing lasted about 30 seconds. #pop

Earl K. Sneed

Pregame standing O for Pop as he receives his Coach of the Year Award. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Just in case you were wondering, Jose Calderon is in the starting lineup tonight for the #Mavs.

Dwain Price

Mark Cuban said folks here know him from Shark Tank as opposed to the Mavs' owner. "A lot of them were like, 'What are you doing in town?' "

Earl K. Sneed

.@dallasmavs starters: Calderon, Ellis, Marion, Dirk & Dalembert. #DALatSAS

Tim Duncan's right knee, caught in a head-on collision w Monta Ellis' knee in G1, is just fine, per Pop. http://t.co/AXJStxOWIQ

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle pretty matter of fact on Dirk going into Game 2: "He'll be ready to play tonight."

Mark Followill

Spurs anomaly from Game 1: Their 17.6% on 3s (3/17) was worse than any regular season game except hitting 2-of-21 on 2/21 at Phoenix

Mark Followill

Mavs anomaly from Game 1: Dirk & Monta combined for 22 points, fewest in a regular season game for those 2 was 25 (vs MIN on 12/30)

Dwain Price

On TV in San Antonio a few minutes ago, a reporter said Rick Carlisle got the best of Gregg Popovich in Game 1. I thought the Spurs won.

Dwain Price

You never know what you're going to get from your role players from game to game. But if your stars don't show up you are dead meat.

Dwain Price

Either Dirk Nowitzki or Monta Ellis got to show up for the #Mavs to beat the #Spurs tonight. A 4-of-14 with 11 pts stat line won't cut it.
