NBA says foul called on Dwight Howard w 10.8 sec left in OT should have been called on Blazers' Joel Freeland & Howard should have shot FTs.
All the best to Coach Adelman and his family. Many legendary battles with his teams over the years. The NBA will miss you
NBA says foul called on Dwight Howard w/ 10.8 left in OT should've been on Blazers Joel Freeland instead. Houston trailed by 1 at time
Asked was there a particular point of emphasis in practice today, Gregg Popovich said: "Sure." Asked if he would elaborate, he said: "No.''
Luca is the Ginobilis' 3rd child. The first two are twin boys who are almost 4 years old.
Manu Ginobili's wife gave birth to a baby boy at 7:22 this morning. He weighed 8 lbs. and 6 ounces. And Ginobili was back at practice.
You don't change lineups this late in the year. The practical thing to do is play a starter less minutes if his backup is playing better.
Hated that Wolves weren't more successful under Adelman - major injuries to Rubio & Love a big reason - but eager to see where they go.
Tony Parker backhanded compliment of Devin Harris?: "Devin played good ... He made 3 3s in the 1st half. He usually doesn’t make those 3s."
Morning world! Don't like the taste of losing...We will be better!
Heck of a game, capping off quite a show in the first weekend of NBA playoffs

That 2003 Mavs-Trailblazers series....man.
So LaMarcus Aldridge has a new Portland playoff scoring record w/ 46 pts...breaking record of 45 by Bonzi Wells, vs the Mavs in 2003
Damian Lillard made the most clutch 3s in the NBA this season, 22. (Clutch being game in final 5 mins & within 6 points)
Considering what went down earlier in the 4th pretty big FTs from Dwight there.
Game 2 is Wednesday at 7 p.m. in San Antonio before the series shifts to Dallas for Games 3 and 4 on Saturday and Apr. 28.
It always puzzles me how a team can play so well for so long and then all of a sudden act like they've never seen a basketball before.
Dalembert stayed out of foul trouble and finished with 2 points and 8 boards in 17 minutes. He had no fouls in the 1st half.
Counting regular season and 90-85 win today, San Antonio is 11-1 in games decided by 5 points or less
That was a crazy finish. Up 10, it looked like a lid was on the basket. The Mavs finished the game 1-of-13 on FGs with just 4 pts.
Defensive strategy worked. Mavs just didn't finish the job on offensive end. Held Spurs to 90 points, can't do much better.
Spurs win with classic case of pick your poison. Mavs concentrated on the 3-pt line, held Spurs to 3-17. Gave Duncan room, scored 27 pts.
Dirk: "I'm always frustrated after a loss, so maybe I'll see the positive tomorrow."
Carlisle: "I love a lot of things we did today. But it's a 48-minute game, and the last seven minutes, we have to finish better."
Mavs lose game 1 in SA, 90-85. A stretch of 7:44 w/out FG made in 4th dooms Mavs. Devin Harris w/ 19 for Mavs while Duncan has 27 for Spurs
It's just one game. But sometimes one game makes the difference in winning and losing a series.

Since 10-0 run Dallas scoreless in more than 4 min and now trails 85-81...14-0 Spurs run w 2:45 to go.
That's a 10-0 Spurs run in less than 3 mins to tie at 81 and Mavs fans have seen this movie before. 4:54 to play. The immortal Timmy - 26.
Game tied again -- at 81-all. Spurs on 10-0 run. It's 4:54 left.
Mavs got up 10, back to back scores by Duncan and Mavs are up 81-75 in San Antonio, 6:46 to go on TXA21
Devin Harris w 17 & 5 going to need to keep making plays for Mavs to hold onto this one. Lead swelled to 10, now 6 w 6:46 to go.
