Roger Mason just hit a 3-pointer with 1:49 left and the Spurs have closed in to 100-96. The Spurs present such problems on offense and the last two plays are good examples. Tony Parker drove past the entire Dallas team for a layup, but on the next play, Mason hit the 3. The Spurs lead the league in 3-point shooting at nearly 40 percent and have four players who hit better than 40 percent. A couple of more 3's and the Mavericks are in trouble.
