Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks could not quite pull off a Texas-sized comeback against the San Antonio Spurs. Nowitzki scored 17 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter, but the Mavericks could not entirely erase a 28-point second-half deficit in a 113-100 loss to the rival Spurs, who avoided being swept in the season series for the first time. Tony Parker scored 27 points and Hedo Turkoglu a season-high 21 for San Antonio, which held a 61-33 lead early in the third quarter and 86-60 entering the fourth period before Dallas embarked on a furious rally, pulling within 95-90 on a jumper by Nowitzki with 2:55 left. "We knew they would make some runs," Parker said. "They're a good team. We weren't as aggressive and they got back in the game." But Malik Rose countered with a layup on San Antonio's ensuing possession and Parker sank a pair of free throws to make it 99-90 with 2:23 to go. Dallas got no closer than seven points thereafter. Playing once again without injured All-Star Tim Duncan, San Antonio trailed early, 13-8, before going on a 12-0 run to take the lead for good. The Spurs held a 29-18 advantage after one quarter and extended to 59-33 at the break, holding the Mavericks to an anemic 29 percent from the field (12-of-41) in the first half. It was the fewest points Dallas had scored in a half all season. The bulge was 76-55 with 2:18 left in the third quarter when Dallas' Michael Finley was ejected for throwing a forearm shiver at San Antonio's Bruce Bowen. Finley was retaliating for having been shouldered in his ribs seconds before, a foul that eluded the referees. Mavericks coach Don Nelson promptly picked up two technical fouls and was tossed for arguing on Finley's behalf. "We both bumped one another. He bumped me last," Bowen said. "He hit me, I hit him, and then he hit me back. That's the gist of it." "I thought Bowen knocking down Finley was a dirty play and I think he meant it," said Dallas forward Danny Fortson, who was suspended earlier this season for a flagrant foul on Phoenix's Zarko Cabarkapa that broke the rookie's wrist. "I think that play was a little worse than the play I had against Phoenix. Mike could've gotten hurt, too. (The) thing is that Mike just has stronger bones than that kid in Phoenix." Rasho Nesterovic collected 13 points, 15 rebounds and a season-high seven blocks for the Spurs, who are 3-1 since Duncan went down with a left thigh injury in a 115-91 loss at Dallas on February 26. "Rasho and Hedo have been playing great these last few games," Parker said. "They are really getting comfortable with everything. Hedo has really been finding his shot lately and Rasho has been great on D and blocking lots of shots." "It was a wonderful game for us," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "We had to have a lot of people step up and play. Rasho continues to play so well, blocking shots and rebounding. Tony competed really well and made some good decisions. A lot of guys participated." Starting for Duncan, Rose had 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, who made half their 76 shots and limited the Mavericks to 39 percent (34-of-90). "When you go against the likes of these guys, even without Tim Duncan, and don't bring your A game, you are going to leave this city with a loss," said Dallas assistant Donn Nelson, who took over when his father was ejected. "That's exactly what happened tonight."
