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.
It's seriously not out of the realm of possibilities that every team in the Southwest Division makes the playoffs this season.
Attention to my mentions: the word is "jell" when talking about a team coming together. Not "gel." Thank you and goodnight.
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
Byron Scott seems to be enjoying his new gig. That's good.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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
Parsons: "Me personally, I've got to step up. I can't have too many more nights like that."
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."
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
In addition, Parker has never made more than 4 3s in any game in his career (reg or post)
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
19-10 Mavs run since Spurs had 91-81 lead...
He. Is. Still. Dirk. Nowitzki.
Down 4 at the time, gonna lament two possessions after Spurs turnovers with chance to close gap
Carlisle is going to go back to Parsons, who is 1-of-7, with 6:42 remaining and down 89-81.
Parsons is still stuck on 2 pts on 1-of-7 shooting in 27 minutes.
Spurs went 22-4 when they made 10+ 3s last reg season. 11 made tonight so far
The refs called only 16 fouls in the 1st half. They've already called 14 fouls -- and 2 techs -- in the 3rd period.
Crowder, Monta, Jefferson, Harris and Wright are in the game. That's a small lineup.
Devin hobbling after getting tripped by Manu.
Is that remnants of an off-season dye job that I missed or is Diaw getting gray hair?
He's still Dirk Nowitzki.
Monta in the paint ends a 12-0 Spurs run, setup by a Tyson-like back tap by Dirk
Foul and tech n Tyson.
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
Carlisle loves strength in numbers, 10 guys played 5+ mins in 1st half, and 9 of em scored
That flying dunk was the only pts Parsons scored in the 1st half. He missed his other 4 FGAs.
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
