13.5 miles ran in the books. Great event, was the 2014 Illuminations Half Marathon.

Dan McCarney

Now Austin Daye is doing stuff. (@Matthew_Tynan) Maybe this is meant to be...

Dan McCarney

Mavs tie it up at 59, Spurs score 7 straight to push back ahead late in third quarter.

Jeff McDonald

Give the Mavs tons of credit. Really hanging in against the defending NBA champions, down only seven with 3:38 to go in the third quarter.

Dan McCarney

Somewhere, Chris Paul nods his head approvingly.

Dan McCarney

Cory Joseph trying to out-flop Rondo, and doing a pretty damn good job.

Dan McCarney

Rondo draws (iffy) charge, feeds Parsons at the other end for the game-tying three-point play. Knotted up at 59s, 5:11 left in 3rd.

Mike Monroe

Pop going all Norman Dale vs. #Mavs, zoning, calling plays every trip, slowing pace; look for the picket fence next

Dan McCarney

Rondo scores first bucket midway through the 3rd quarter on point-blank floater.

Dan McCarney

Spurs, Mavs currently having a competition to see who can pass the ball worse.

Dan McCarney

I did not see a foul on that shot.

Jeff McDonald

Since about halftime of the Grizzlies game, the Spurs have played with a whole lot of guts. Eventually, might get a W to show for it.

Mike Finger

Ehh, even I think I'm overrated. RT @Bitterwhiteguy: People don't appreciate @Mike Finger enough.

Dan McCarney

Chuck Miketinac advises us not to forget about Matt Bonner. As if this was possible.

Dan McCarney

Apologies, Tweet game is off tonight. Still punch drunk from last night's triple OT.

Mike Monroe

Everyone who had #Spurs up by 5 on #Mavericks at halftime post pre-game proof

Jeff McDonald

Scrappy, never-say-die Mavs score five quick points in final 35 seconds, trail defending champs by five at half. Have to admire their guts.

Mike Finger

After Long Beach built so much drama, Texas somehow, some way, kept coming up with funky stuff, like every single play.

Dan McCarney

It's raining meatballs in Dallas. Belinelli up to 14, Spurs by 9.

Mike Monroe

Refs definitely giving benefit of a few doubts to short-handed #Spurs vs. #Mavs ... last call on Dirk very iffy

Jeff McDonald

Kareem Abdul Jab-Bonner has brought it tonight.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs still holding on to 39-33 lead late in 2Q in Dallas. The Construction Worker leads the team with 12. http://t.co/oaJdgvBiuw

Mike Finger

The LBC has brought some drama to the Erwin Center. No. 9 Texas leads Long Beach by two in the second half.

Dan McCarney

Monta is 6 for 10, teammates are 7 for 27. (Rondo, 0-2)

Dan McCarney

Diggler 1 for 8 after that miss. Mavs shooting 37.1 pct overall.

Jeff McDonald

Turns out Dirk wasn't included in the Rondo deal after all. Hits hit first bucket of the night after starting with six misses.

Dan McCarney

Parsons wears lavender capri pants. BAYNES wears animal pelts. Pick your battles, son.

Jeff McDonald

Green and Splitter are active and in uniform. Meaning they could play in some sort of emergency. Appears no plans to do so absent that.

Dan McCarney

Elliott sounds like he has a sock in his throat.

Dan McCarney

Zero chance this continues, but interesting while it lasts.

Dan McCarney

If Green, Splitter don't play at some point tonight, that's basically 7 of the top 8 players. Yet, up 12 early in 2nd

Jeff McDonald

And yes, Belinelli = Horschack

Jeff McDonald

Up 10, Spurs huddle up at this timeout to discuss how to keep the momentum going: http://t.co/sUXVgyQenY

Dan McCarney

Marco with the spicy meatball, Spurs up 12. On an 18-2 run.

Dan McCarney

Translated: Eat it, haters RT @tom_orsborn Sean Elliott makes no excuses for being a "homer" ... expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a… … via @mySA

Jeff McDonald

Dirk remains 0-for-5. It's as if Rondo is guarding him!

Jeff McDonald

Um. The "Spurs" are winning by 10.

Dan McCarney

Elliott says Duncan is messing with him via text: "You sound awful." (And Sean does; sick or something.)

Mike Monroe

Playing with 8 vs. #Spurs lead #Mavs 25-21 after 1 quarter in Dallas; Belinelli with 8 ... Green, Splitter suited up but resting on bench

Jeff McDonald

Spurs' starting backcourt for 2Q RT @Halamlock wife surprised me with these dog-bandanas. I love it!!! http://t.co/ZOOnB1xTIw

Dan McCarney

Solid start for the Bizarro Spurs, leading 25-21 through 1.

Jeff McDonald

Recapping: Spurs left five of their best players back in SA. Danny Green and Tiago Splitter combine for zero 1Q minutes. Spurs lead 25-21.

Jeff McDonald

Oops. Turns out Bo and Luke Duke are resting tonight. They've been replaced by Coy and Vance.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs' second unit getting ready to check in: http://t.co/cn4VTwnC5G

Jeff McDonald

The rare Aron Baynes heat check.

Jeff McDonald

The "Spurs" are up on the Mavs 13-10 early. Actually getting looks galore on offense.

Jeff McDonald

Apparently, the Mavs also included Dirk Nowitzki's jumper in the Rondo deal.

Jeff McDonald

Kyle Anderson was so wide open he actually had time to uncork that Slo-Mo jumper.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs open shooting 100 percent. So much for Rondo bolstering Mavs' defense.

Jeff McDonald

Belinelli with the jumper. Spurs lead 2-0. I smell upset!

Jeff McDonald

Who gets beat worse today, Kyle Anderson's old team, or his current team? Place your bets now, degenerates.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs indeed have 10 people in uniform. Guess it's up to Pop whether all of them play, and how much.

Jeff McDonald

Maybe Rick Carlisle would let the Spurs borrow Richard Jefferson back. Just for tonight.

Mike Finger

Kentucky wouldn't have let him past the baseline.

Mike Finger

Texas guard Demarcus Holland, at FT line, drops ball, runs off court, sticks head in trash can next to Long Beach bench. I'll stop there.

Jeff McDonald

Pop's first choice for a starting five tonight, except they're playing SNL: http://t.co/zuHVCFVzkv

Quixem Ramirez

This Redskins team never ceases to amaze me. They're 2-1 against the Cowboys/Eagles and 2-10 against all other teams.

Jeff McDonald

Pop doesn't exactly sound upset-minded tonight in Dallas: "I'd say we're a little thin right now to pull that off."

Jeff McDonald

Side effect of playing shorthanded: With only 10 players here, most Spurs able to spread out across two stalls in visitor's locker room.

Jeff McDonald

Those who have asked: Green is active, but for now it appears he's coming off the bench. Probably to reduce workload.

Jeff McDonald

Actual Spurs starters, via Pop: Joseph, Belinelli, Anderson, Diaw, Baynes.

Jeff McDonald

At least one of the Spurs' starters out early to shoot at the AAC: http://t.co/Q5ZJ8yRAYP

Jeff McDonald

Challenge accepted. RT @josh2150: I'm gonna do this before @Jeff McDonald does: Spurs starting 5 tonight http://t.co/SbTCrbFpMs

Jeff McDonald

FWIW, Mavs did get pounded at home earlier this year by an Indiana team down five starters. Cue Lloyd Christmas.

Paul Garcia

Running 13.5 miles in a bit should be fun (@ J.W. Marriott Conference Center in San Antonio, TX) swarmapp.com/c/eNcSDYISn6X

Jeff McDonald

Not to mention the remaining Spurs have got to be gassed after the week that was.

Jeff McDonald

But any edge the Spurs might gain there is offset by the fact that they are playing with five of their best players out.

Jeff McDonald

Under different circumstances, facing DAL on Rondo's first night might be an edge for Spurs. Chance for Mavs to be a bit discombobulated.

Kawhi Leonard

It's only right http://t.co/kNTPlBMk92

Kyle Anderson

Big dont got twitter? RT @Kenny_D_UCLA: In honor of #TopFiveMovie, my #Top5 is @S_C_ , Biggie, @Nas, @Eminem, and @icecube.

Jeff McDonald

Also relevant for tonight: Since 2011-12, Spurs are 2-3 w/o original Big Three and Kawhi Leonard in uniform.

Jeff McDonald

Relevant for tonight: Spurs are 5-11 in Big Three era w/o all of Duncan, Parker, Manu in uniform. Have gone 5-4 over past nine such games.

Jeff McDonald

Tim Duncan is averaging 36.3 minutes per game in December. Would be his most in a single month since December 2008.

Mike Finger

Serious question: If Kentucky played only four guys at a time (but rotated to keep them fresh) for the entire second half, who would win?

Tiago Splitter

congrats @gabriel1medina !! world Champion from Brazil!! #surf

Tiago Splitter

meus parabens @gabriel1medina !! Brasil campeao!!! Coloquei uma foto minha brincando nas ondas faz uns anos kkkkk http://t.co/aLf265EYgU

Mike Finger

I wouldn't necessarily call you crazy if you said the next time Texas plays Kentucky, the Wildcats will still be undefeated.

Michael De Leon

Can I play just one game of 2k15 in here pretty please #fb http://t.co/6bqWzLvFmt

Jeff McDonald

Also also, I love poking @Matthew_Tynan with a (virtual) stick, because he's never around anymore to ball-bust in person.

Jeff McDonald

To be honest, was gonna make that "48 seconds of hell" joke about College Station, but I don't need the stress. Those people are nuts.

Jeff McDonald

This was the danger of playing the old guys last night against Portland and not winning. Makes tonight's game a punt.

Paul Garcia

Yes. RT @yowhatupT: Here's a stat Spurs fans will love: Richard Jefferson is 3rd in the league in offensive rating right now.

Jeff McDonald

I am shocked (not shocked): No Duncan or Ginobili tonight in Dallas, per Spurs.

Dan McCarney

Given how hot he's been -- 25, 27 points in last two games, 13 total 3s -- prolly wants to ride that to the bitter end.

Dan McCarney

Was thinking Green might get the night off too. But he said he felt much better after last night's game than Wednesday.

Quixem Ramirez

Geez, the Spurs are double-digit underdogs tonight. That takes some getting used to.

Mike Monroe

So 10 #Spurs will suit up vs. #Mavs tonight in Dallas ... wonder if Popovich will use "2 lines" again, sub 5 for 5 as Fri. vs. #Blazers

Paul Garcia

Danny Green has played 94 minutes in the last 3 days, and he's listed to play again tonight. Will be interesting if Pop uses him.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs make it official: No Duncan or Ginobili vs. #Mavs tonight

Dan McCarney

Spurs: Duncan (rest), Ginobili (rest), Parker (hamstring), Leonard (hand) and of course Mills (shoulder) are all out tonight in Dallas.

Quixem Ramirez

Duncan (rest), Ginobili (rest), Leonard (hand), Parker (hamstring), Mills (shoulder) all out tonight against Dallas, per the Spurs.

Paul Garcia

Spurs announced Tim Duncan (rest), Manu Ginobili (rest), Tony Parker (hamstring), Kawhi Leonard (hand) & Patty Mills will all be out tonight
