Gameday: Game 6: Mavs vs Spurs Simulation
With a big game 6 just a few hours away against our San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks. What we plan on doing here at AA is bring you a simulation of game 6 using 2K Sports NBA 2K10’s NBA Today feature. We plan on doing this for the rest of the Spurs playoff run, as we all know they will continue, but if for some reason they do not, we will still run them for the rest of the playoffs and just post the score and leading performers for each team. I did not play this game as it would defeat the purpose of calling it a simulation. I sat and watched this whole game just like it was “real”. I had my glass of Pepsi and a bag of sunflower seeds and was actually getting into, like bad. It was exciting!! I made sure the minutes were set at 12 and it was time to watch the game. After the jump, you will see the result of Game 6 between the Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs. Hope you guys enjoy.
The AT&T Center was packed for this game.
The game started off slow for our beloved Spurs. The first half belonged to the Dallas Mavericks, which seems to be a pattern when they played in games 3 and 4 here. The Mavs took a big lead going into the second half leading 54-41. Tim Duncan started the scoring for us with a dish from George Hill as Duncan threw it down in front of Dampier. When the Spurs would start closing the gap, the Mavs would go on a run once again and the biggest threat would not be Dirk Nowitzki, but Jason Terry. Terry would hit 2 big three’s back to back to further the distance from the Spurs.
Uhh I hope we don’t see anything like this tonight.
Jason Kidd would do what he does best, dishing off the rock to his teammates. Shawn Marion was treated with a few dishes from Kidd, which is the only way that Marion will and can hurt is, in the open floor. Kidd and the Mavericks would take that 13 point lead into the half.
Second half comes and what a second half speech from Pop. This was a totally different Spurs team. Ginobili was a firestarter along with Antonio Mcdyess. Ginobili would was scrapping to the paint getting fouled, hitting the bucket and getting a shot at the charity stripe. Antonio Mcdyess would grab some key rebounds and hit some big shots, just like in game 4.
The Spurs would claw and crawl back being down by as many as 17 in the second and put on one hell of a San Antonio run. The Spurs outscored the Mavericks in the second half 72 to 51 to take game 6 and move onto the second round of the playoffs.
Ginobili would be named player of the game with 28 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists in the big 113-105 win. Duncan would finish with a double double in his breakout game after having two bad games since his birthday, 20 points and 14 boards. George Hill would add 18 points and Antonio McDyess would put in 20 points in 27 minutes of play. Parker came off the bench and chipped in with 8 points in 30 minutes. The Mavericks were led by Dirk Nowitzki who had a game high 33 points. Jason Terry finished with 26 points and shot 3-for-5 from three point. The rest of the starting five were held in check, but Caron Butler sparked the Mavs off the bench with 16 points in 37 minutes. The Spurs outrebounded the Mavs 36-30 and had 6 more fast break points.
With the virtual game 6 going to the Spurs, we will see if the real silver and black will come through for us tonight and send the Mavs fishing so we can get ready for the next series. I hope you guys enjoyed this new addition we will be adding here. Below is the box score for game 6.
