Mark Cuban said folks here know him from Shark Tank as opposed to the Mavs' owner. "A lot of them were like, 'What are you doing in town?' "
Tim Duncan's right knee, caught in a head-on collision w Monta Ellis' knee in G1, is just fine, per Pop. http://t.co/AXJStxOWIQ
Rick Carlisle pretty matter of fact on Dirk going into Game 2: "He'll be ready to play tonight."
Spurs anomaly from Game 1: Their 17.6% on 3s (3/17) was worse than any regular season game except hitting 2-of-21 on 2/21 at Phoenix
Mavs anomaly from Game 1: Dirk & Monta combined for 22 points, fewest in a regular season game for those 2 was 25 (vs MIN on 12/30)
On TV in San Antonio a few minutes ago, a reporter said Rick Carlisle got the best of Gregg Popovich in Game 1. I thought the Spurs won.
You never know what you're going to get from your role players from game to game. But if your stars don't show up you are dead meat.
.@cnbc yr guest list for tomorrow is non public One guest always moves a stock. U show a fund that trades it. Insider trading ? By who?
Vince Carter is really hoping people didn't overlook him for Sixth Man of the Year consideration. Carter: "The Mavs need a trophy."
Reporter: "They'll make some adjustments..." Vince Carter: "We will, too."
Rick Carlisle on Gregg Popovich: "Why don't we just give him Coach of the Century? I mean, he's the best."

I'm focused man! It's Game Day! We must be great!
Wish I had FSSW in the hotel in SA, appears I missed a weird yet exhilarating Rangers win
Ball don't lie.
1 aspect of Pop winning COY goes well beyond 62 Ws while playing nobody > 30 min & that's the psychological reset after fumbling the Finals.
Nets are kinda like, hey, uh, we'll take Chicago now...
Made it back to San Antonio, Game 2 is tomorrow night at 7p, like all of the first round we're on TXA21. Pre-game is at 630
What's the over and under on Gregg Popovich getting all teary-eyed when he picks up his Coach of the Year trophy tomorrow night? Fat chance?
"Once the Big 3 retires I think he’s going to be our star and he’s the one who'll have to carry the team." -- Tony Parker on Kawhi Leonard
Gregg Popovich, Don Nelson and Pat Riley are the only men to win NBA Coach of the Year 3 times. Red Auerbach won it once -- same as Avery.
Devin Harris on Tony Parker: "When I was here before, he was happy to see me go. I'm looking forward to just matching up with him again."
Pop's 3rd Red. http://t.co/SffLFXnYI6
Carlisle: "We're not going to change the lineup just to change the lineup." Expect Jose Calderon to start Game 2.
Its still a mystery to me that Jerry Sloan was never named Coach of the Year in his illustrious career. And he loved the media. Come on man.
No argument with Pops winning Coach OTY. But what happened to Casey, Stotts, Hornacek, Thibodeau, Rivers, Vogel? Were they not worthy?
You ever wonder how Gregg Popovich is taking the news that the media voted him as the NBA Coach of the Year? You think he's having a party?
Durant had 36 points last night. Why's everybody hitting me up that he had 34?
I'll never forget when Ken Bunting moved to Seattle, he took time from his busy schedule to have lunch with me when I was in town.
Sorry to hear about the death of ex Star-Telegram co-worker Ken Bunting. He always had nothing but kind words to say about everybody. RIP

Turned on the Stars game, is it me or does it look like Ed Asner is coaching the Ducks
Series heads to Memphis where Grizzlies have won 14 in a row. Feel free to check the math.
Series goes back to Memphis where Grizzlies have won 14 in a row. Feel free to check the math.
Memphis is going to hold on, a grit-n-grind victory if there ever was one. KD has 36 but it wasn't pretty or fun.
Neither side has timeout left with 19.8 left. Memphis leading 107-105 and will have the ball coming out of the timeout.
Six fouls on Marc Gasol. KD going to the line to tie and take the lead with 35 seconds left.
Just my interpretation, but looked like Durant was not happy with that timeout being called.
Folks kicking the ball. We have field goals in the NBA, but this is not the NFL.
