Second-year pro Derrick White, who had emerged as one of the team’s most important pieces before missing the first five games of the rodeo road trip with a plantar fascia injury in his right foot, traveled with the Spurs to Toronto for the start of leg 2. Though the 24-year-old White has not been formally ruled in for tonight’s game against the Raptors at Scotiabank Arena, he’s listed as probable. Coach Gregg Popovich showed confidence he at least would be ready to return at some point on the trip that moves on to New York on Sunday and Brooklyn on Monday.

Jon Krawczynski: KAT very excited about the prospect of adding A-Rod to Wolves ownership. Told a story of how his mother once essentially helped him lift an A-Rod jersey from a Wal-Mart when the family had hard times financially. KAT is a huge A-Rod fan.
Christopher Hine: Karl-Anthony Towns just relayed a story about when he was younger in a Wal-Mart with his mom when he really wanted an A-Rod jersey. The family didn’t have much money, so Towns just put the jersey on, they bought a few other things … and he walked out with the jersey on.
Tom Orsborn: DeMar on his plan on final possession: “Honestly, just trying to get to my spot, knowing the clock, taking my time, not rushing, just going to a move I have worked on so many times, concentrate, knock down the shot.”
The result prevented the Mavericks from sweeping a season series from the Spurs for the first time in the rivalry’s 41-season history — but more importantly, it was a stinging defeat for the Mavericks (29-23) in their ongoing quest to climb into the top six in the Western Conference. Instead of winning for the seventh time in their last eight games, the Mavericks fell to a Texas rival for the second time in four days. Houston and San Antonio are otherwise winless in April, making the two defeats all the more damaging. “He made a hell of a shot, over a good defender,” Luka Doncic said of DeRozan.
“Going for the block, in my head I saw that clearly I was going to get the block,” Porzingis said. “But he’s good at leaning back and I hit his head a little bit. It’s a tough one, obviously. I wanted to be out there. Even with everything we had a chance to win the game. Doncic (29 points, seven assists) tied the score at 117 on a shot from the lane with 19.4 seconds left, setting up DeRozan’s heroics. “DeMar hit a huge shot,” Porzingis said. “Hat’s off to him. That just shows how hard it is to win every night, against an NBA team.”
