The Spurs took a skeleton crew up I-35 to face Dirk and the Mavs for the last time this season

San Antonio went to Dallas with an 8-man rotation, with Dedmon being the only regular starter to stay in the lineup. Tony dressed, but never saw the court as the visitors were down big early, but gelled by the mid third quarter to take the lead and end the game without much fight by the Mavs, who scored only 28 in the second half.

After a meh first half, the Warriors found their mojo in the third quarter to secure the win against the Timberwolves, 121-107.

One day before Steve Kerr infamously sat Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green (as well as the injured Kevin Durant) against the San Antonio Spurs, the Warriors lost a hard-fought game against the Timberwolves in Minneapolis. The young team, led by rising star Karl-Anthony Towns, seems well-equipped to handle the Warriors’ elite shooting and defensive versatility now and in coming years.
