2014 NBA Playoffs San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks – Game 7 

Win or Go Home.

We would have never guessed the San Antonio Spurs would be on the brink of elimination in just the First Round.

Not again.

They can, perhaps, fall to the Dallas Mavericks today. Again.

The Spurs would be the first franchise to lose to an eighth-seeded team as the one seed—not once, but TWICE.

Ace Feltman of The Smoking Cuban previews today’s elimination game. Like he says, today’s game is for all the marbles. Who’s going to play the Portland Trail Blazers in the Second Round, the Conference Semi-Finals?

The odds are in San Antonio’s favor from a percentage and numbers stand point, but Dirk Nowitzki has never lost a decisive Game Seven (4-0) and Dirk Nowitzki is The Winning Soldier.

Project Spurs’ own Jeff Garcia lists five things to watch tonight in this elimination game:

  • The San Antonio Spurs are 41-11 record (29-4 home record) in playoff games in which Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili score at least 15 points apiece.
  • The Spurs posted a 24-1 record in games that Tiago Splitter scored in double figures in the regular season.
  • The Spurs went 16-0 when distributing at least 30 assists in the regular season.
  • San Antonio has won the most postseason games (63) in the NBA on their home court since the 2003 playoffs.
  • The Mavericks are 0-7 all-time in best-of-seven playoff series when they trail 3-2.

Will the Spurs Win Game 7?
