DALLAS -- San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich was simply with his comments on Vince Carter's game-winning 3-pointer which beat the Spurs, 109-108, Saturday afternoon at American Airlines Center.
"Vince made a shot,'' Popovich deadpanned. "Manu (Ginobili) guarded him -- he did it well and Vince made a shot.
"Give him credit. There were no breakdowns or anything like that.''
Carter's shot gave the Dallas Mavericks a 2-1 lead in this best-of-seven series which resumes Monday night at 8:30 at the AAC. Game 5 will be Wednesday at 6 p.m. in San Antonio.
"Manu was right there and he did everything he could,'' Popovich said of Ginobili's tight defense on Carter. "Vince knocked it down.''
