WHO: Dallas Mavericks at San Antonio Spurs

WHAT: Ugh, these guys AGAIN.

WHERE: AT&T Center, San Antonio, Texas

WHEN: 6:00 p.m. CDT

HOW: TXA21; TNT

THE STORY: Well party people, quite the series, no? The Mavericks just missed on a chance to send it to overtime in game four, and these games have for the most part been far better and entertaining than...well, than I for one was expecting. Not much to say that hasn't been said at this point -- the Mavs will be missing DeJuan Blair tonight thanks to his suspension, and the Spurs' Tony Parker is day-to-day with an ankle sprain (no word on his status as of this writing). Maybe Dirk gets hot tonight?

Series coverage is here, game five preview is here, music video is below, as per usual.

Anything can happpppeeeeeennnnnn. Let's go Mavs.
