So the Mavericks are playing with the expected passion and are leading by 10 with less than four minutes left. For Mavericks fans, this is nice. But the Mavericks leave for New Orleans after the game and if they get embarrassed tomorrow night by the Hornets, well then, who cares?
The Spurs are without Manu Ginobili but last week, they were without Ginobili and Tim Duncan and still beat the Mavericks by 17.
Obviously this would be a good win for the Mavericks. But I don't know that it's impressive until you get two or three of these.
