Ugly! To say the least. Caron Butler scored 35 to lead all scorers in a 103 to 81 win over our beloved Spurs. Dallas came out more aggressive and knew they needed to take a win back from San Antonio on their home court. They started off quick and looked to run, run and run when they had a chance.
Butler was a man on a mission and could not miss anything he threw up towards the basket. San Antonio was down by just seven points at the half. They had momentum. At the start of the second the Spurs offense was not on display. In the final two quarters they scored just 35 points. Mavericks put up 50.
George Hill did not have an encore performance as he finished with 12. Ginobili finished with 7, Duncan with 11 and Jefferson with 4. Tony Parker led the team with 18.
I will have a full recap Wednesday.
