Only success #Grizzlies having is getting #Thunder bigs in foul trouble. Perk, Stevens and Collison all w 2. Meanwhile Mem 6-11 FTs.

Jeff Caplan

End 1: #Thunder 29, #Grizzlies 16... Westbrook 12, Durant 9 ... Z-Bo 2-11, Memphis 5-29. Fortunate only down 13.

Jeff Caplan

Westbrook opens large and in charge, starts 4-5 FG 10 pts; Durant w 9 on 4-7 FG. Grizzlies completely outmatched in opening 8 min. 23-10.

Jeff Caplan

Westbrook likes his strength advantage over Conley. #Grizzlies start 0-5 FG. #Thunder up 8-0 (9:23), force early Memphis timeout.

Earl K. Sneed

One 8th seed has already stolen home-court advantage. Your turn, @dallasmavs.

If Samuel Dalembert could have stayed out of foul trouble Wednesday in Memphis, perhaps the #Mavs would have opened the playoffs vs. OKC.

On the health of his team going into Sunday's Game 1 against the #Spurs, #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said: "We're doing well health-wise.''

Jeff Caplan

.@Kevin Durant asked if he sleeps well or has butterflies on the eve of the start of the playoffs: "I’m peaceful, man. Another basketball game."

The Maple Leafs are looking at that crazed hoops scene going in Toronto and they're like, Whu?

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said #Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is probably the best coach in the history of the NBA.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs played better on the road than they did at home. That's good for them, because they won't have homeocurt adv in any West series.

Dwain Price

Memo to Samuel Dalembert: If Dalembert plays well, the #Mavs have a shot at beating the #Spurs. They really do need his height and length.

Jose Calderon had a fantastic season outside shooting...high volume, high success rate. 5th best % ever when taking 400+ 3s (191/425, 44.9%)

Here's how I voted for Rookie of the Year: 1. Michael Carter-Williams 2. Victor Oladipo 3. Trey Burke.

Dwain Price

Since the #Spurs are the No. 1 overall seed in the NBA playoffs, NCAA tournament-wise it's like the #Mavs are the 64th team in the tourney.

Dwain Price

The #Spurs are a machine. Give them credit. Their success speaks for itself.

Dwain Price

It's imperative that #Mavs C Samuel Dalembert stay out of foul trouble against the #Spurs, and definitely don't get any silly fouls.

The #Mavs appeared loose when the media was allowed in the AAC towards the end of practice today. They're a longshot to beat the #Spurs.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs will host a free Watch Party at The Rustic at 3656 Howell St. in Dallas for Games 1 and 2 vs. the Spurs.

Asked what did the #Mavs learn in their 4 games against the #Sours this year, forward Shawn Marion said: "I'm not telling you. Nope.''

"We got to keep turnovers down and we got to be scrambling our butts off because of how great they move the ball." - Rick Carlisle on SAS

#Spurs are going to be jacked up at home. So the #Mavs need to be ahead or within 5 after the first quarter.

Who hit the most 3s vs the Mavs over last 2 seasons? That would be Spurs' Danny Green w/ 26 (in 39 att). Made his 1st 10 shots @ AAC this yr

Dwain Price

#Mavs know the powerful #Spurs can be beaten by a lower seed. No. 8-seeded Memphis upset the No. 1-seeded Spurs in the 1st round in 2011.

Dwain Price

In 2007 the No. 8-seed #Warriors upset the No. 1-seed #Mavs 4-2. In 2011 the No. 8-seed #Grizzlies upset the No. 1-seed #Spurs 4-2.#memories

Dwain Price

So weird to look at the #Mavs' final stat sheet and see that the same 15 players they started the season with, they ended the season with.

Dwain Price

#Mavs owner Mark Cuban is concerned about his team's 26-15 home record. It's the worst of any of the 8 teams in the West playoffs.

Mavs face Spurs team going to playoffs for 17th straight yr. Playoff streaks end for DEN (10) LA (8) BOS (6). 2nd longest streak now ATL (7)

Dwain Price

The Spurs' +7.7 point differential is the NBA's best. So is their 62-20 record. In other words, these guys are really, really good.

Dwain Price

Do you get this gut feeling of doom and gloom when you walk around town? As if the #Mavs have no chance against the vaunted #Spurs?

Dwain Price

Amazing what 2 or 3 inches can do. If Monta Ellis' shot at the buzzer was centered 2 or 3 more inches, the #Mavs would be playing OKC.
