That's right. No talk of ugly basketball in the East -- at least on Easter Sunday. The Spurs made 11 of 46 shots in the first half and followed it up with four ugly misses to start the second. Not to take anything away from the Mavericks' defense, because it is keeping the Spurs away from the basket, but the Spurs are missing a lot of wide open shots.
The Mavericks have opened up a lead at 52-40 early in the third. And right now, the Spurs are not showing enough life to believe they can turn this one around.
