Our @Dallas Mavericks telecast honored w/ Lone Star Emmys, 7 overall for @FSSouthwest. foxs.pt/1nQaNM6 Great to be part of Mavs/FSSW team

Earl K. Sneed

Hate to see a rookie go down in his 1st game. Hate it more when it's a good kid. Even more when it's a Dallas kid. Good luck, Julius Randle.

Mark Followill

Also a local broadcast of Knockout Round Playoff matchup w/ FC Dallas & Vancouver tonight. Myself & @KevinEHartman 8p, TWC-Sports Channel

Shout out to our @fcdallas tonight taking on Vancouver Whitecaps in #MLSPlayoffs #RedForGlory

Earl K. Sneed

It's seriously not out of the realm of possibilities that every team in the Southwest Division makes the playoffs this season.

Earl K. Sneed

Attention to my mentions: the word is "jell" when talking about a team coming together. Not "gel." Thank you and goodnight.

Mark Followill

Turned HOU-LAL off at start of 4th, just seeing news about Dallas' own Julius Randle (broken right leg). Such a bummer, best wishes to him

Jeff Caplan

Byron Scott seems to be enjoying his new gig. That's good.

"Just stay together and leave the referees alone and stay in the game mentally.'' -- Monta Ellis on what the #Mavs learned in loss to #Spurs

Dwain Price

"Overall we played a good game. We can learn from it and get better, go to practice and get ready for the next one." -- #Mavs G Monta Ellis

Dwain Price

"We played a good game. Hard fought. It came down to a couple of possessions. Tony (Parker) made a big shot.'' -- #Mavs G Monta Ellis

Inside Report: @Dallas Mavericks are just edged by champion Spurs in season-opening thriller mavs.com/game-1-mavs-sp… #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Parsons said maybe he needed to make an extra pass to Monta at the end of the game. But he shot it with just one second left in the game.

Jeff Caplan

First NBA opening night I'm not a part of in a while and have to admit it's a bit deflating. It was a good run. Hopefully back up soon.

Jeff Caplan

This dude Duncan is just so boring: 14 pts, 13 boards, 2 asts and 2 blks for his 798th career double-double. Yada, yada, yada.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk's advice to Parsons: "This is not a one-game season. There's 82 games in this season. He's got to get used to his new teammates."

Mark Followill

With opener at SA in books, Mavs now play 2 of next 9 games vs playoff teams from last yr, at POR & home vs MIA. So we'll see how that goes

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons: "Me personally, I've got to step up. I can't have too many more nights like that."

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle: "I love a lot of the things that we did. It was a great game. ... You can't kick off the season with a better game for the fans."

Mark Followill

Looking ahead: Utah here Thurs, they open at home tomorrow v Houston. Mavs at New Orleans Sat, Anthony Davis 26P/17R/9B in win v Magic 2nite

INSTANT ANALYSIS: @Dallas Mavericks are just edged by champion Spurs in season-opening thriller mavs.com/game-1-mavs-sp… #DALatSAS

Mark Followill

In addition, Parker has never made more than 4 3s in any game in his career (reg or post)

Mark Followill

Tony Parker 4/4 from 3, including winning 3 with 1:07 to go. He's gone 4/4 on 3s one other time in his career: 2/28/04 vs Denver

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons misses from three & the @Dallas Mavericks fall 101-100 in a wild finish. 26 pts for Monta & 18 pts for Dirk. 23 pts for Parker. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Spurs 101, #Mavs 100. Ellis led the Mavs with 26 pts, Dirk had 18, Harris 17, Jameer 9, Chandler 8 and Parsons 5 (2-of-10).

Dwain Price

After a dreadful shooting night, Parsons had a chance to be the hero. But he missed a 3 with under 1 second left and the #Mavs down 1.

Derek Page

A timeout would've been nice... #Mavs

Earl K. Sneed

Off Monta and out of bounce. Spurs' ball with 48.7 seconds left. @Dallas Mavericks down 101-100. #DALatSAS

Derek Page

Dirk's been held in check all night before going off for 8 in 4th. #Mavs need stop and clutch Dirty bucket to win this one.

Earl K. Sneed

This sure feels like a playoff game... #DALatSAS

Mark Followill

19-10 Mavs run since Spurs had 91-81 lead...

Earl K. Sneed

Parker for three. @Dallas Mavericks down one inside 1:00 to play. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

He. Is. Still. Dirk. Nowitzki.

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons for three! @Dallas Mavericks down 96-94...till that Ginobili and-one with 2:31 left. 98-94 after the missed FT. #DALatSAS

Derek Page

Not a great start to Chandler Parson's #Mavs career thus far. Just 1-8 from the field and 2 pts in 30 forgettable mins.

Earl K. Sneed

Spurs are now 13-of-26 from three and shooting 53.8% as a team from the field. #DALatSAS

Mark Followill

Down 4 at the time, gonna lament two possessions after Spurs turnovers with chance to close gap

Earl K. Sneed

Devin misses a three at one end. Danny Green does now. Spurs lead the @Dallas Mavericks 96-89 with 3:27 left. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk returns down 93-89 with 3:53 left. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Remember when I said Devin Harris had been working on his outside shooting??? Yeah. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Bad matchup there with Parsons trying to guard Duncan down low, but Harris come back with a three. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle is going to go back to Parsons, who is 1-of-7, with 6:42 remaining and down 89-81.

Dwain Price

Parsons is still stuck on 2 pts on 1-of-7 shooting in 27 minutes.

Earl K. Sneed

7:20 remaining and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 89-81. 22 pts for Ellis & 14 pts for Dirk. 20 pts for Parker. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

And this is the part of the show when the Spurs suddenly can't miss... #DALatSAS

Mark Followill

Spurs went 22-4 when they made 10+ 3s last reg season. 11 made tonight so far

Earl K. Sneed

Harris stays in the game, joining Nelson, Jefferson, Dirk & Tyson with 9:00 left and down nine, 86-77. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

9:00 left and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 86-77. This is a good time to put together a run. Tyson's 4th foul & Dirk's 3rd changed this game.

Earl K. Sneed

Ginobili and Devin Harris just went knee to knee. Both are pretty banged up. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

And now the threes are falling for the Spurs... #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Sick drive and bank-in by Devin Harris. He can get to the rim whenever he wants, if he leaves that jumper alone. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

1-of-7 but active defensively. RT @townbrad: Parsons' only made field goal is the dunk that opened the scoring for Dallas.

Earl K. Sneed

Ginobili opens the 4th with a three. That one gave the crowd a little more life. @Dallas Mavericks might want to respond and respond quickly.

Dwain Price

Parker leads the #Spurs with 20 pts, Manu has 15, Belinelli 12, and 10 each for Duncan and Green.

Dwain Price

#Spurs lead the #Mavs after 3 quarters 76-73. Monta has 22, Dirk 10, Nelson 9, Harris 8, Chandler 6, Parsons 2 (1-of-7 FGs).

Earl K. Sneed

Step-back by Ginobili over Crowder takes the Spurs into the 4th with a 76-73 lead over the @Dallas Mavericks, despite Monta's 22 pts. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

The refs called only 16 fouls in the 1st half. They've already called 14 fouls -- and 2 techs -- in the 3rd period.

Earl K. Sneed

Yeah, Devin is just fine after blowing past the Spurs' defense for that bank-in. @Dallas Mavericks lead 73-72 with 1:34 in the 3rd.

Dwain Price

Crowder, Monta, Jefferson, Harris and Wright are in the game. That's a small lineup.

Earl K. Sneed

Devin Harris went down hard, grabbing his left knee. But he gets up and looks fine. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Devin hobbling after getting tripped by Manu.

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis and Tony Parker are going back and forth again. Reminds me of the first round all over again. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Monta has 22 of the #Mavs' 69 points. He's balling.

Mark Followill

Is that remnants of an off-season dye job that I missed or is Diaw getting gray hair?

Earl K. Sneed

Dirks puts the @Dallas Mavericks up 63-62 with 5:43 left in the 3rd. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

He's still Dirk Nowitzki.

Earl K. Sneed

18 pts, 3 rebs & 5 assists now for Monta Ellis. @Dallas Mavericks trail 62-61 with 6:22 left in the 3rd. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

When Tyson goes to the bench, if another team has a big dude, that's where the #Mavs have issues.

Mark Followill

Monta in the paint ends a 12-0 Spurs run, setup by a Tyson-like back tap by Dirk

Earl K. Sneed

Tech on Dirk with 7:48 left in the 3rd after his 3rd foul call. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Dirk gets a foul. And a tech -- with 7:48 top go in the 3rd. #Mavs are losing their cool.

Dwain Price

Tyson has 4 fouls. And a technical. Look for the #Spurs to drive often to the hole. Spurs on 9-0 run.Game tied at 57-all @ 8:21 of the 3rd.

Earl K. Sneed

This building is now awake and Tyson has 4 fouls. Tied at 57-all with 8:21 left in the 3rd. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Tech on Tyson Chandler with 8:30 left in the 3rd after his 4th foul. #DALatSAS

Dwain Price

Foul and tech n Tyson.

Earl K. Sneed

I've fallen victim to the dreaded AT&T Center wifi. But that Monta to Tyson lob was crazy! @Dallas Mavericks lead 57-51.

Mark Followill

Meanwhile in the 3rd inning the Royals have almost as big of a lead as the Mavs do right now #yay

Mark Followill

Fairly even game I thought, difference being a few more TO's for Spurs & the Mavs have turned em into pts, & they've converted off. rebs too

Mark Followill

Carlisle loves strength in numbers, 10 guys played 5+ mins in 1st half, and 9 of em scored

Earl K. Sneed

Just five turnovers for the @Dallas Mavericks in the 1st half compared to the Spurs' nine giveaways. Mavs shot 48.9% to Spurs' 47.2%. 20 rebs each

Dwain Price

That flying dunk was the only pts Parsons scored in the 1st half. He missed his other 4 FGAs.

Mark Followill

Love Monta's ability to score in bunches, 10 point burst in just under 6 mins of game time in 2Q. Had 27 qtrs last season of scoring 10+ pts

Dwain Price

#Mavs are shooting 48.9% on FGs to 47.2% for the #Spurs. The reb. are even at 20-20. Parker leads the Spurs with 10. Duncan has 6 pt, 9 reb.

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead at the half 53-45. Monta has 14 pts and 4 assists, Jameer has 9 pts. #Mavs had just 1 of their 5 turnovers in the 2nd period.

Earl K. Sneed

Three fouls on Tyson Chandler now with 1:09 left in the half. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis has taken over! #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Monta with a finger roll that dropped down from the Heavens ever so gracefully. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Sick step-back J by Monta Ellis. Man, I love a step-back... #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons is getting his hands on a lot of balls on the defensive end. He's getting steals, blocks and deflections. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Best defensive rotations and possession of the first half right there for the @Dallas Mavericks. I like this lineup: Nelson, Ellis, CP, RJ, Wright

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle calls timeout as the Spurs cut the @Dallas Mavericks' lead to 41-38 with 5:12 left in the half. 9 pts & 2 assists for Nelson. #DALatSAS

Earl K. Sneed

4 pts & 7 rebs for Tyson Chandler now, but his activity is not measured on the stat sheet. #DALatSAS
