Mavs Spurs

  1. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs: The incredible, invisible Antonio McDyess

    May 10, 2010, 1:26 PM EDT

    What’s so remarkable about the playoffs is how quickly things can change for any one team. The Suns, who at one point struggled to keep pace with the injury-riddled Blazers, now look like a dominant playoff team. The nature of playoff match-ups change everything. Players, strategies, and specific styles can expose weaknesses in opponents or…

  2. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs: If your heart says Phoenix and your head says San Antonio, the numbers agree with your heart

    May 3, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    In the strictest sense, the San Antonio Spurs’ first round victory over the Dallas Mavericks should be considered a monumental achievement. A 2-7 upset should be praised in the highest regard. A pauper bested a prince! David toppled Goliath! The spunky underdogs with hearts of gold took down the evil billionaire! Only it wasn’t. The…

  3. Nowitzki isn't rethinking Dallas, he's just frustrated

    Apr 30, 2010, 10:14 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki is a frustrated man. Frustrated at losing. Frustrated again at having a team that excels in the regular season then falls short early in the playoffs. Frustrated to keep answering the same questions about losing out year after year. You’d be frustrated if you were him too. And you can’t take what a…

  4. Mark Cuban: "I'm not so proud of the NBA."

    Apr 30, 2010, 8:55 AM EDT

    Memo to Dwight Howard, Stan Van Gundy, Phil Jackson, Matt Barnes, Rasheed Wallace and anyone else trying not to get fined while criticizing the referees: Follow Mark Cuban’s lead. The Dallas Mavericks owner went with the use of code words rather than just come out and say the officiating sucked. Here, from the ESPNDallas: “I’m…

  5. NBA Playoffs: San Antonio will not be deterred, finished of Dallas in six

    Apr 30, 2010, 12:55 AM EDT

    With the Dallas Mavericks down, the Denver Nuggets on the brink, the Phoenix Suns decidedly mortal, and the Utah Jazz dinged up, the San Antonio Spurs would like to respectfully enter their name for consideration as the non-LA team to beat in the West. They looked every bit of it in their resilient game (and…

  6. Quote of the day, where the double negative proves our point

    Apr 26, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    “I don’t see no fat lady.” –Dallas forward Shawn Marion, after his team fell behind San Antonio 3-1 in their best-of-seven series. Most of the rest of us, however, see her in the wings ready to take center stage.

  7. NBA Playoffs: Close wins are good enough for the Spurs, who are finding new and exciting ways to best the Mavs

    Apr 26, 2010, 12:00 AM EDT

    When they entered the playoffs, the San Antonio Spurs were not considered a championship contender. Their late season success was chalked up as something of an aberration, and though many picked them to ‘upset’ the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs, that’s not exactly the same as declaring the Spurs fit to…

  8. Manu Ginobili breaks nose, keeps right on playing, like he's a hockey player

    Apr 24, 2010, 10:26 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki’s elbows, which earlier this year helped provide Carl Landry a painful reminder about the importance of regular trips to the dentist, now are helping Manu Ginobili get a nose job. Early in the third quarter of game three Friday night, an inadvertent Nowitzki elbow caught Ginobili on the nose and broke it. But…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Mavs and Spurs deliver as promised, but Dallas draws first blood

    Apr 19, 2010, 1:40 AM EDT

    Dallas and San Antonio both played well but not perfectly. That said, the most important word in that sentence is both, as every terrific performance was countered and every sloppy play met with another by the opposition. It was a game of brilliant, beautiful, and flawed (but balanced in its flaws) basketball, and we shouldn’t…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Mavs and Spurs to embark on a journey for the ages

    Apr 18, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    It’s usually not a good idea to over-hype a series, because the practice can only backfire. A great playoff series will organically drum up interest, as NBA fans are drawn to good, competitive games. So those series’ don’t really need help on the front. If a series isn’t so great? Well, then hot air, hot…
