Dirk is fired up. His 2 FTs have the @Dallas Mavericks up 95-83 with 3:30 left. 14 pts & 11 rebs for the Big German. #DALvsSAS

Tim Cato

Whatever you're feeling right now, bottle it up and reopen it after the loss in SA on Friday. They won't beat the Spurs twice and that's ok!

Earl K. Sneed

Now operating as your closer: Monta Ellis. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

Monta scored a combined 23 pts in the past 2 games. He has 32 tonight.

Derek Page

So that's how you wake Monta Ellis up?

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis is now up to 30 pts on 13-of-22 shooting. He has made everyone forget about 4 of 22 Sunday in Phoenix. #DALvsSAS

Where oh where has this game been for the #Mavs?

Earl K. Sneed

AL-FAROUQ AMINU!!! And one! #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

#Mavs were down 14. Now they're up 17.

Dwain Price

Flying save by Aminu leads to a 3 by Dirk and an 81-66 lead for the #Mavs.

Earl K. Sneed

Great hustle by Aminu leads to a Dirk three, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 81-66 with 10:52 left. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

Monta is 12 of 21 for 28 pts. Dirk and Parsons are 10 of 21 for 21 pts.

Derek Page

Ellis plays hero ball to end quarter. Would've been more beneficial to initiate p&r w Amare. Assuming Rondo reiterated that on bench.

Earl K. Sneed

A reminder: the @Dallas Mavericks are the only undefeated team when leading after three quarters this season at 32-0. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

#Mavs outscored the #Spurs in the 3rd period 33-20.

Earl K. Sneed

After three, the @Dallas Mavericks lead 76-66. 28 pts for Monta Ellis to lead the way for the Mavs. #DALvsSAS

Tim Cato

It's weird watching a Spur fling a crosscourt baseline bounce pass and it isn't off a hammer play.

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead after the 3rd period 76-66. Monta leads with 28 pts, Parsons has 11, Dirk 10.

Earl K. Sneed

This is the most active the @Dallas Mavericks' defense has been since the win over the Clippers. Everyone is engaged and scrambling. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Amar'e Stoudemire just dove for a loose ball and landed on three camera guys. He helped them up, though. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Tech on Devin Harris with 1:54 left in the 3rd. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Once down by 14, the @Dallas Mavericks lead 74-60 with 2:00 left in the 3rd. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

What a stunning turnover. #Mavs up 72-60 with under 3 minutes left in the 3rd.

Earl K. Sneed

Charlie V. enters. Charlie V. swishes a three. Devin Harris follows suit with a trey. @Dallas Mavericks lead 70-60. #DALvsSAS

Derek Page

Does Popovich always refer to himself in the third person? #craterfaceandthepalmsupgang

Dwain Price

#Mavs on 42-22 run since being down 36-22 in the 2nd period.

Dwain Price

Monta is officially out of his slump. He is 11 of 18 from the field with 26 points.

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis with the trey ball before a driving score, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 64-58. 26 pts and counting for Ellis. #DALvsSAS

Derek Page

On a positive note, Devin Harris is playing his ass off. Clearly has heart. All over the floor on both ends.

Earl K. Sneed

J.J. Barea just came to the @Dallas Mavericks' bench. He's walking pretty good.

Dwain Price

Dirk has 8 of the 16 pts the #Mavs have scored this period.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk joins Ellis and Parsons in double figures. He has it going right now, but heads to the bench with 10 pts. #DALvsSAS

Tim Cato

These drives are moves I haven't seen Monta Ellis make in weeks.

Dwain Price

Well, at least the Monta tech didn't cost the #Mavs any points. Green missed the FT.

Dwain Price

Per #Mavs PR: Richard Jefferson's injury is listed as back spasms.

Derek Page

Monta Ellis likes to think he's Allen Iverson on the break. #Mavs guard decides to go 1 on 4, #Spurs get easy bucket on other end.

Dwain Price

Tech on Monta. He was mad. He thought he was fouled on the previous drive. But you can't be giving away points.

Earl K. Sneed

Danny Green for three, and Carlisle calls for a timeout with the @Dallas Mavericks in a 54-53 hole. Tech on Ellis with 6:54 left in the 3rd.

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo to Tyson for the two-handed slam, and the @Dallas Mavericks have opened the 3rd on an 8-2 run. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis is up to 19 pts on 8 of 14 from the field. @Dallas Mavericks are up 49-48 after that Dirk jumper. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

Richard Jefferson is out with lower back stiffness.

Dwain Price

Well, here's the crazy part. Both the #Mavs and #Spurs are 19 of 45 from the field for 42.2%. The Spurs had 6 turnovers in the 2nd period.

Dwain Price

Monta leads the #Mavs with 15 pts and Parsons has 11. Mavs are shooting 42.2% on FGs, and they only had 1 turnover in the 2nd quarter.

Earl K. Sneed

At the half, the @Dallas Mavericks trail 46-43. 11 pts for Leonard. 15 pts for Monta and 11 pts for Parsons. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

Parsons trying to tie a world's record. #4pointplay

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons for three...and one! #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

As awful as the #Mavs played in the 1st period, they're only down 46-40 with 57 seconds left in the 1st half.

Derek Page

Did the world really need another Paul Blart movie? We're an embarrassing bunch.

Earl K. Sneed

Per @MavsPR, Richard Jefferson is a OUT with lower back stiffness. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

Mama, there goes that man again. (Leonard with the offensive rebound and bucket). #MarkJackson

Earl K. Sneed

Kawhi Leonard is a problem. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

OHHHH! Parsons with the sick driving reverse around Duncan. That was nasty. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

I must admit, the #Mavs have been diving on the floor a lot tonight.

Dwain Price

Back to back fast break hoops by Monta and Parsons have the #Mavs only down 39-34 with 5:19 left in the 2nd period.

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons to Monta on the break. Parsons then throws down a jam in transition, and the @Dallas Mavericks are within 5, 39-34, with 5:19 in the half.

Dwain Price

Stop the presses!! Monta got a call on a drive.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with the driving score after starting 0 of 4 from the field. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

RIchard Jefferson just limped to the @Dallas Mavericks' locker room. #DALvsSAS

Earl K. Sneed

Ginobili dishes a laser pass to Diaw, and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout in a 34-20 hole with 10:18 left in the half. #DALvsSAS

Dwain Price

#Mavs down 34-20 with 10:18 to go in the first half.

Mark Followill

Pop somewhat verbose (comparatively speaking) in the between quarters interview
