Spurs 88 – Mavericks 81
The Spurs won their third straight game after going 1-6 with their 88-81 win over ther Mavs last night. The turning point of the game was when the Spurs went on a 19-run, afterwhich they did not look back the rest of the way.
This loss makes the Mavs 0-8 against teams with winning records since they traded for Jason Kidd. Too bad they are not in the Eastern conference because in the West, all the teams that are in the playoffs will have winning records.
