Spurs had a 21-point lead until fans started booing RJ. Maybe it's karma ...

I know somebody who knows somebody who, in their 60s, has never had a chocolate chip cookie. I find this to be absolutely astounding.

Halftime Spurscast: Spurs 54, Mavs 41 ift.tt/1BuTlgo #spurs

Dan McCarney

Behold the most awkward offensive move of Tiago Splitter's career (and that's saying something) blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Jeff McDonald

RJ's really the only ex Spur that gets booed in this building. They didn't boo Michael Finley, and he strong-armed his way to Boston.

Jeff McDonald

Pop cornered Eli Roe before heading to locker room to try to figure out how come he got a tech. Agreed to disagree it appeared.

Paul Garcia

Spurs’ defense holding Mavs to 39% shooting with 8 turnovers. Ellis 8 points. The Spurs’ largest lead has been 21 points.

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 54, Mavs 41. SA is shooting 51% with 16 assists on 22 makes, but have 7 TOs. Diaw 12 points, Kawhi 11 points.

Jeff McDonald

Normally when a guy gets booed, it's because he forced his way out of town or gave everybody the finger on his way out. Seems weird to me.

Dan McCarney

Pop still chewing some ear before he heads to the locker room.

Dan McCarney

Poor end to the half for Spurs, who give up transition layup to Ellis just before the buzzer. Still lead 54-41 after a fairly dominant 2 Qs.

Jeff McDonald

So fans expected RJ to come to SA and magically become a player he'd never been. He didn't & they're still mad four years later. Got it.

Mike Monroe

Still mad about no-call when Leonard got hacked to pieces Popvich gets a tech screaming about offensive foul call on Kawhi

Paul Garcia

Pop just got hit with a tech, Mavs missed the free throw though.

Dan McCarney

Ellis misses the free throw.

Dan McCarney

Pop T'd up, has to be held back by Udoka and Messina from rushing the court.

Dan McCarney

Two minutes left in the first half, Spurs shooting 52.5 percent with 15 assists on 21 buckets, only 5 TOs. Pretty good.

Jeff McDonald

"Little diddy 'bout jack and diiaaaaaaaane. ... Blech! Amare!" -- off-key warbling behind me just now.

Dan McCarney

Our buddies invite Dirk to behold the Spurs' championship banners. He has one too, you know.

Jeff McDonald

"Little diddy 'bout jack and diiaaaaaaaane." -- off-key warbling behind me just now.

Paul Garcia

Spurs by 21, 3 minutes before half.

Dan McCarney

21-point lead now after Leonard's jumper

Jeff McDonald

Dallas has two guys you don't really have to guard in the halfcourt. It's a wonder their offense works as well as it does.

Jeff McDonald

I think RJ gets a worse rap than he deserved, is what I'm saying.

Dan McCarney

Interesting: Parker, Belinelli, Leonard, Green and Duncan.

Mike Monroe

first free throws for #Mavs with 6:19 left in 1st half

Paul Garcia

After shooting 0/2 in the 1Q, Danny Green is 2/2 in the second, both threes. Spurs by 19.

Jeff McDonald

RJ didn't quite fit the offense Spurs were moving toward at time. Still shot 44% from 3 one year and averaged in the 12-13 ppg range.

Dan McCarney

Never really understood allure of getting plastered at sporting event. Shouldn't spectacle be entertainment enough? Especially at that $?

Dan McCarney

Spurs with 12 assists on 16 buckets, still 7 minutes to play in the 2nd quarter.

Mike Monroe

Seems like #Spurs have made more than 4 3-pointers vs. #Mavs but it's defense that has them with 41-23 lead

Jeff McDonald

When these guys start toasting Bill Brasky, I'm outta here.

Paul Garcia

“Boris can play whenever he wants to,” said Tony Parker the other night. Diaw has 12 points in 12 minutes off the bench. SA by 18.

Dan McCarney

Boom. Just fed Danny Green for the corner 3 in transition with a no-look snap pass. Just beautiful.

Dan McCarney

Diaw already up to 12 points in 11 minutes, with 2 rebounds and 2 assists. Playoff Bobo makes this team really, really tough to handle.

Jeff McDonald

I hope the drunk guys behind us pass out soon.

Dan McCarney

Oh God, they're getting more beer...

Dan McCarney

This is hard to do, but RJ got nothing but glass on a 2-foot runner.

Paul Garcia

Argentine dart pass to a slashing Frenchman. Manu with the straight line bullet to Boris for a layup. Spurs by 14...again in 4 days.

Dan McCarney

OK, it took almost 3 years to get here, including 3 long postseason runs, but we have reached peak drunk moron in seats behind press row.

Dan McCarney

Who Did It Worse: Splitter's Euro Step or Gortat's Dream Shake?

Jeff McDonald

Why do they boo Richard Jefferson here? He didn't do anything to anyone.

Dan McCarney

Poor Richard Jefferson. Cascade of boos upon his introduction.

Jeff McDonald

Past couple games, Ginobili has been coming in for Leonard (a later sub) than for Green.

Paul Garcia

Spurs’ defense holds Mavs to 34% shooting in 1Q with 3 turnovers. Ellis scored 2 points on 1/4 shooting.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs hold #Mavs to one FG in final 4:20 to take 28-18 lead after 1st quarter at ATT Center; 15th straight game with double-digit lead

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 28, Mavs 18. SA shot 50% with 8 assists on 11 makes and just 2 TOs. Duncan/Kawhi/ Beli with as many points as Dallas - 18.

Dan McCarney

Spurs were up 29-17 after one in Dallas and totally fell apart. So, as always, Winston Wolf Rule is in play.

Dan McCarney

A weird stat, but I would love to know what the record is.

Dan McCarney

15th straight game with a double-digit lead for Los Spurs.

Paul Garcia

Game 15 in a row the Spurs have held a double digit lead.

Dan McCarney

Spurs fans behind press row encourage Dirk to keep shooting open jumpers after he misses. Does not seem to be a wise plan.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi and Duncan have 13 combined points late in the first. SA with 7 assists on 9 makes. 2:09 left in 1Q, SA 23-18 lead.

Jeff McDonald

Another stat, via FSNSW: Since the All-Star break, the worst 3-ball shooter in the NBA is ... Monta Ellis. Should be easy to guard thenn.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs kept Ellis scoreless for the first 7.5 minutes with Kawhi on him. The minute Marco got switched onto Ellis, Ellis basket.

Paul Garcia

Spurs ran a 1-3-1 zone defense and forced DAL into bad shot. Kawhi got a layup on the other end.

Dan McCarney

Bobo whips pass by Chander's ear to the cutting Duncan, easy layup. Spurs lead 13-9, and Carlisle calls TO.

Jeff McDonald

It's not a clear path. Let's move on.

Dan McCarney

Dirk has a very underrated stink face.

Paul Garcia

Danny Green’s throwing semi-no look passes now...

Jeff McDonald

Surprised Ellis' no-look save didn't just go into the basket somehow ...

Dan McCarney

Tim Duncan on a poster, Chandler Parsons edition.

Paul Garcia

Splitter almost loses the ball, but he recovers and finds Kawhi in the corner for three off a Duncan hammer screen.

Jeff McDonald

And the battle for 6th place is on ...

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. Mavericks: Rondo, Ellis, Parsons, Dirk, Chandler.

Its 40 degrees thats a heat wave up there. RT @kehlanimusic: citizens of New York, go buy a homeless man a scarf or blanket jessssssus

Mike Finger

And my source on that is his contract.

Mike Finger

In other words, the suggestion that Barnes can guarantee himself $1.75M by resigning before April 1 is inaccurate.

Dan McCarney

Patty Mills would be the Michael Jordan of that stat.

Dan McCarney

Pop's making north of $10 million this year, while the rest of us are circling the drain in a dying industry. So who's really clever?

Jeff McDonald

Apparently, Richard Jefferson IS active tonight, per Tricky Rick Carlisle

Mike Finger

Now, in Mack Brown's case, they worked out an agreement in which he ended up getting his buyout amount. But that's not guaranteed.

Mike Finger

To clarify a misconception I've seen out there: Barnes contract specifically says if he resigns, he's owed nothing. Buyout doesn't apply.

Jeff McDonald

Tonight's fun fact: Spurs are 1-0 against Dallas this season when holding Monta Ellis under 38 points.

Paul Garcia

Sick kicks Patty Mills will wear tonight. http://t.co/xkF1MPG70P

Dan McCarney

"See how smart you are? Your article is going to be really good!"

Dan McCarney

Pop compares Ellis to Stoudemire: "Just give him his 30." It was then pointed out this wouldn't be a good idea for tonight's game..."

Mike Finger
