Photos - Spurs Win Texas Showdown

Being in Dallas for this game was just plain fun! The final score was deceptive because the Spurs backed off on defense in the last minute to let the Mavs drop a couple of threes.

The fun started outside the American Airlines arena in the plaza area. On the giant video screen on the side of the building Dirk was being interviewed. I couldn't hear what was being said, but I couldn't resist photographing the image of Dirk beside the NBA championship trophy.

The Mavs will give free tickets to an area at the top of their lower level to the fans with the craziest attire. These two groups made it. On the backs of their "tighty-whiteys" the first group spelled out CH-AN-DL-ER, since Nowitski was not playing.

Tony then went to work on which ever Mav was guarding him, Kidd or Terry.
