San Antonio Spurs: Game 2 of the first round of the 2014 NBA Playoffs starts Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. EST between the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks.

Nick Elizondo of Air Alamo gives grades for the key Spurs players in Game 1. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker deserved good scores, but other San Antonio Spurs did not play as well; check out who played the worst and best, according to him.

Project Spurs’ Andrew Ball lists both the positive and negative aspects of Game 1 from the side of the San Antonio Spurs (check out The Smoking Cuban for Mavericks coverage). Ball tells us how Duncan played like he was in his 20’s, and that the Spurs played stellar defense on the Mavs stars; but San Antonio needs to shoot the three ball better if they want to win again Wednesday and need to find a way to stop Devin Harris.

Will the Spurs sweep the Mavericks?
