Parker, Green + Marco: 9 3-pointers Dallas: 7 3-pointers

Dan McCarney

That 14's still taking some getting used to. Said 14, Danny Green, drills Bowen Memorial Corner 3 for 96-89 lead, 3:27 left.

Paul Garcia

Green for three, Spurs' lead safely gets pushed back to 7. Green has 13 points, 3:27 left in the game.

Paul Garcia

Spurs' turnover count up to 18, Dallas 9.

Jeff McDonald

Belinelli lost Devin Harris twice after made Spurs baskets, twice resulting in Dallas 3-pointers. He is now on the bench.

Jeff McDonald

Pop is about to murder Marco Belinelli I think.

Paul Garcia

Tim Duncan, stiill as efficient as ever. He's got 14 points and 12 boards.

Dan McCarney

Would love to know exactly how many times Tim Duncan has run down an NBA court.

Quixem Ramirez

*dies* RT @SBNationGIF: Schan Antonio Sschpursh http://t.co/EQvBjYnjYR

Paul Garcia

Dirk gets called for his 4th foul guarding Diaw in the post, he wasn't too happy as one might expect.

Quixem Ramirez

Here lies Tim Duncan, who was a “pretty good player."

Quixem Ramirez

Pop wisdom: “Timmy’s a pretty good player. Timmy’s a pretty good rebounder. But he can’t get them all."

Paul Garcia

Fan in front of me yells "DJ QUAKE!" Really enjoys the music Mr. Quake provides us here at the arena.

Quixem Ramirez

Manu’s only rival is himself.

Paul Garcia

7:33 left in the 4Q, Spurs lead 89-81. SA has a 13-8 early lead in the 4th. SA with 5 players in double figures in season opener.

Paul Garcia

Marco with the quick fire three off a pass from Baris. Marco with 15 points now, SA by 8

Paul Garcia

Manu looks ok, back on the bench, and no assistance by trainers. Carry on with 8:04 left in the 4Q.

Jeff McDonald

Ginobili's staying in the game ...

Paul Garcia

Manu's returning to the game.

Paul Garcia

Manu is on his feet, stretching out the leg, he's back in the huddle.

Jeff McDonald

Ginobili's still on the bench. No locker room.

Jeff McDonald

I assumed knee-to-quad or something, but I haven't seen a replay.

Paul Garcia

Sevening having Manu stretch out the right knee. Manu's in the team huddle now.

Paul Garcia

Manu is headed to the bench right now. Trainer looking at knee.

Dan McCarney

Joseph's pull-up J gives the Spurs their largest lead yet at 86-77, 9:00 left. Ginobili a bit gimpy after collision.

Paul Garcia

Looked like he took a shot to the knee, Will Sevening looking at him by scorers table

Jeff McDonald

Manu Ginobili's hurt himself.

Paul Garcia

Manu is hurst, looks like his right leg.

Dan McCarney

Shield your eyes, but here's a great straight-on shot of the Spurs latest rings. http://t.co/kCPIPfL18f

Paul Garcia

Joseph layup allows Spurs to match their largest lead of the game - 6 points. 10:04 left in the 4Q.

Paul Garcia

Clarification, Parker with 20 points, Manu right behind him with 18. They both didn't play international ball this summer.

Quixem Ramirez

Pop, asked about ball movement. Midseason form response: “Where do I see it? I see it right on the floor."

Paul Garcia

Manu's feeling it, just nailed a step back three over Chandler, he's got 18 to match Parker.

Paul Garcia

At the end of the third, Anthony Davis is 3 blocks shy of a triple double with 22 points, 15 boards and 7 blocks. Insane...

Mike Finger

36 minutes into a new Spurs season. How many will it be before the first @Buck Harvey tweet?

Quixem Ramirez

All I want for Halloween is Manu’s step back move.

Paul Garcia

Spurs put up 31 in that last quarter, held the Mavs to 20. Manu and Parker scored 19 in the third, one less than Dallas as a team.

Mike Monroe

Headed to 4th in SA #Spurs lead #Mavs 76-73; SA's Big 3 stars have 45 pts.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili has 4 FGs tonight, had 8 for the entire preseason.

Paul Garcia

3Q: Spurs 76, Mavs 73. Both teams shooting 48%, SA 13 turnovers, DAL 8. Parker 18 points, Manu 15 points.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead 76-73 heading into 4Q, after trailing by 10 early in the the third.

Quixem Ramirez

End of third quarter: Spurs 76, Mavericks 73. Spurs Big Three: 45 points, 15 rebounds, 8 assists.

Dan McCarney

Spurs only wearing trophy patch for tonight, but NBA should let champions wear them throughout the season. A nice touch...

Jeff McDonald

That was like the first 3-pointer Ginobili's made in about 9 1/2 weeks.

Paul Garcia

Manu Magic - Ginobili with the three at the shot clock, ge's got 11 points now.

Jeff McDonald

I mean if Tony Parker is basically going to be Steve Kerr on that corner 3 ...

Dan McCarney

All-time list: 1. Wilt, 968 (in 1,045 games; wow); 2. Moses, 894; 3. Elvin Hayes, 890; 4. Kareem, 885; 5. Karl Malone, 814; 6. Duncan, 797.

Paul Garcia

Tony Parker with his third corner three of the night off an insane Manu baseline pass. Parker has 18 points. SA 67-65 with 3:41 left in 3Q

Quixem Ramirez

Tony Parker is making 3-pointers this season. Pray for the rest of the league.

Michael De Leon

Dan McCarney

797th double-double of Duncan's career, sixth all time and 17 behind No. 5 Karl Malone.

Quixem Ramirez

Oh, I hope they are OK. RT @THE_BOOMSTEIN: Tony Parker just broke two guys I think

Quixem Ramirez

Tim Duncan is two double-doubles away from 800. Toronto only has 629 wins in franchise history.

Paul Garcia

The Baynes is checking in for Duncan, who has 10 points, 12 rebounds, and 1 block.

Quixem Ramirez

Tim Duncan picked up his 798th regular season double-double. Second most since 1985.

Paul Garcia

Just saw Anthony Davis' name on Twitter, so I looked up his stats: 18 points, 12 boards, 4 blocks, 2 steals, 1 assist in 3Q.

Jeff McDonald

Closest thing the Spurs will have to a home Halloween game and this place is full of zombies. Oh wait that's just Duncan and Dirk.

Dan McCarney

Spurs alligator blooding it, down 63-62 midway through the third quarter.

Paul Garcia

Kind of like how Duncan & Parker says he does when Manu's in the game and they're on the bench.

Dan McCarney

I also get to see Boris on the reg, so...

Paul Garcia

Pop never changes, just being animated toward Bonner or Beli on the bench though neither is in the game.

Dan McCarney

Always feel better that I can't drop those last 10 pounds smothering my long-buried abdominals whenever I see Ray Felton.

Jeff McDonald

Techs do serve a purpose, though. Mavs start getting calls, now in the bonus for final 6:22 of 3Q.

Paul Garcia

Even more impressive since Duncan's 38. -> RT @MauWinterheart: @Paul Garcia he is 38. Your point holds though

Mike Monroe

one game, one double-double for 38-yr.-old Tim Duncan; SAS 62, DAL 59

Jeff McDonald

These make-up calls are brought to you by Revlon.

Paul Garcia

Tim Duncan has to be a robot. What 37 year old human could deliver a pass, run to the post, get rebound, then score with an and-1 opp?

Jeff McDonald

If the Mavs don't settle down, Belinelli's gonna get a career high just on technical foul shots alone.

Paul Garcia

Now Dirk draws the technical foul. Threw his arm up and it clipped Duncan's face, didn't like that refs called that an offensive foul.

Dan McCarney

Pounding the rock logo includes 22 round cuts, and five shards flying from the rock representing each of the titles.

Dan McCarney

Top: 76 round, 10 princes and the aforementioned baguette cut diamonds. Around edge are 42 round cut diamonds.

Dan McCarney

Details on Spurs rings: 14 carat white goal with 5.09 weight of diamonds. Including four baguette cut diamonds, probably for Boris.

Paul Garcia

Spurs have opened the second half with a 12-4 run out of the gates. Parker, Green and Beli all in double figures.

Dan McCarney

That move was filthy AND nasty. Filthsty. Spurs tie the game at 57 on Parker's hesitation up-and-under.

Mike Monroe

And justlikethat #Spurs erase 9-pt. #Mavs lead in 45 seconds, with assist from ref Jason Phillips' ticky-tack foul call on @Tyson Chandler

Jeff McDonald

Tony Parker with a little shake and bake past Nelson, and Spurs have knotted things at 57 after trailing by 10.

Paul Garcia

Tony Parker just made Jameer Nelson go skating with a shadow, Jameer totally lost Tony. Game tied at 57. Parker 15 points.

Paul Garcia

Tyson Chandler gets a technical foul called on him, that's his 4th foul of the night as @DukeOfBexar noted.

Jeff McDonald

Now Tyson Chandler tech'ed up. He's been in a glass case of emotion all night.

Quixem Ramirez

Oh basketball, how I missed thee.

Paul Garcia

Marco has a good shot, but passes off to Danny who had a great shot. Spurs now down 3, Green with 10 points too.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs captain Tim Duncan is 1-3 FG but less than 3 min. into 3rd qtr. vs. #Mavs already has 10 boards

Jeff McDonald

Literally everyone on both benches is yelling at referee Jason Phillips. What an awful job to have.

Paul Garcia

Danny Green drives in and pitches out to Marco for the quick three, Spurs down 6. Beli up to 10 points.

Quixem Ramirez

Off the charts swag. RT @BR_NBA: The @San Antonio Spurs’ Big 3 showing off their rings http://t.co/Y5g6r6QF9w

Quixem Ramirez

Why don’t you wear pants to work #AskCoyote

Paul Garcia

Spurs' offense struggled in 2Q: 3 assists on 8 makes, shot 42% with 3 turnovers.

Quixem Ramirez

Spurs turned the ball over nine times in the first half. Still quite far away from peak Spurs.

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 45, Mavs 53. SA shoots 47%, DAL 49%. SA 9 turnovers, DAL 5. DAL took 2Q 29-19. Ellis 13 pts, Parker 10 pts

Jeff McDonald

Revamped Mavs lead newly ringed Spurs 53-45 at half.

Quixem Ramirez

Halftime: Mavericks 53, Spurs 45. Parker with 10 points, Duncan has 6 points, 7 rebounds.

Jeff McDonald

Cory Joseph's first FG as Spurs' undisputed backup PG is a successful 3-pointer.

Paul Garcia

With relative ease too. RT @THE_BOOMSTEIN: Ginobili just posted Parsons. Ok then

Paul Garcia

Manu postgame though, not something I've seen in a long time.

Quixem Ramirez

Big, if true. RT @dexterfishmore: lmao Spurs are trash this year

Paul Garcia

2:47 left before half, Mavs' lead has grown to 7. DAL holding lead in 2Q 23-14.
