    GAME 4: Spurs 92, Mavs 89. My Top 10 Observations

    ​10. Spurs' rookie DeJuan Blair is a beast. Sunday he had seven points and seven rebounds in 11 minutes and even placed an elbow in Dirk Nowitzki's ear to bait him into a technical foul. Roddy Beaubois may grow into the Mavs' point guard of the future, but some of us (my hand was raised) were ... More >>

    GAME 2: Spurs 102, Mavs 88. My Top 10 Observations

    ​10. Give Spurs coach Gregg Popovich credit. His "dogs" played harder and better than Dallas. In fact, they jumped to a 9-0 lead and basically used the Mavs as a fire hydrant. 9. Watching Erick Dampier and Brendan Haywood, it's Dallas' best center duo since Gana Diop was here with Damp in '06 ... More >>

    Mavericks 100, Spurs 94: My Top 10 Observations

    ​10. Asked Mavs owner Mark Cuban on his Stairmaster last night if he was serious about his story of almost imploding the team in late January before finding the Caron Butler trade: "Absolutely the truth. Ask my wife." 9. In crunch time, it was Jason Kidd on Manu Ginobli. He doesn't always sto ... More >>

    Pinch Yourself: Mavericks 106, Spurs 93

    In hindsight, Dirk Nowitzki vs. Matt Bonner was a laugher.On second thought, forget The Alamo. And the San Antonio Spurs. What began as a competitive series that some of us skeptics thought the Spurs would win in seven games magically morphed into a hockey power play. Afforded basically a 5-o ... More >>

    Mavs-Spurs Game 5 Preview: Uh-Oh

    *Unless Mark Cuban smears Swine Flu on Tony Parker, I'm afraid the desperate and prideful San Antonio Spurs beat the Dallas Mavericks tonight, forcing a Game 6 Friday night at American Airlines Center. Why? Because home teams down 3-1 always win Game 5. Because Greg Popovich has won 75 percent of hi ... More >>

    Mavericks 3, Spurs 1. The End is Near.

    Let's say that before tip-off of Game 1 I gave you these crystal ball visions about the Spurs-Mavs series: *San Antonio's Tony Parker will skip down Dallas' lane at will, averaging 29 points including games of 38 and 43. *Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki will be held 10 points under his season scoring a ...

    Dear Jose Juan Barea: I'm Sorry

    Consider this my public apology to one J.J. Barea. Dude, I was dead wrong. You are not, in fact, a 5-foot-2 pick-up game liability whose shot I could block. Not a novely act nuisance; the obtuse opposite of Shawn Bradley. Not some twisted Criss Angel mind-fuck. And not, after further review, a boyis ... More >>

    The Top 10 NBA Beards I Could Think of After Gregg Popovich Reminded Me Last Night How Cool Beards Could Be

    Since I'm drowning in deadline, hirsute Observer Night & Day Editor Noah Bailey is kind enough - bold enough - to stand in. Noah, take it away: After the Mavs beat Baron Davis' Clippers last week, I couldn't help but reconsider Davis' much-ballyhooed place in the pantheon of NBA beards. A 4-17 reco ... More >>

    Rick Carlisle's in-game adjustments. And prayer. That's what this Mavs' season comes down to? As the Mavs head into tonight’s preseason finale, a bit more disrespect comes their way. A little more poison into which they can dip their arrows and place in their quivers for the season of retribut ... More >>

    The Dallas Mavericks won't win the NBA's Southwest Division championship. But last Friday night in San Antonio they earned something more precious: confidence. With a 92-86 victory over the Spurs, the Mavs proved they can win playoff-intensity road games against the league's defending champion. And ... More >>
