First off, just wanted to say sorry for the lateness on this. I try to get them up the morning of game days but had to do some 'honey dos' before I could play, hehe.
Outcome after the jump.
Though we were down to start the fourth period, I had a lot of time to come back. The players who gave us that spark of fire were Tony Parker, Michael Finley, and Richard Jefferson. Tim Duncan was not much of a factor; he was in foul trouble all game long after picking up three in the first quarter. He didn't see much of the floor after that.
In the fourth quarter, we would score 38 points to the Mavericks 22. We came all the way back from 21 down and tied the game with just 30 seconds to go. The Mavericks came down looking for their man, Dirk Nowitzki. Even though we tried not to send him to the line by not being so aggressive on defense, we fouled once again. He nailed both his free throws to put Dallas up by two.
With the final seconds running down, we turned to Richard Jefferson, who led our scorers with 27 points. He got a nice look off a screen to tie the game . . . and the ball rimmed out.
Tony Parker would finish with 20 points. Michael Finley paced the bench with 15, hitting three out of six from long range in the final period to cut the Mavericks' lead.
