Unlike most NBA games a dominant start by a team wasn’t an indicator of what was to come the rest of the night. The Spurs outscored the Dallas Mavericks 29-17 in the first quarter, but they were dominated the rest of the way.
The Mavericks outscored the Spurs 59-37 in the second and third quarters, to go up 10 after being down 12. Monta Ellis was definitely the best player on the floor, as he finished with 38 points on 16-27 field goals.
