Devin Harris is the first Mav to partially blame the new ball for a bad performance.

Devin Harris got to the basket several times against the Spurs, but was unable to finish. Part of the reason, he said, was the new synthetic ball, which seems to "grab" the backboard more than the old leather version. "I've got to find the touch," said Harris, who went 1-for-6 from the floor. "There's a certain spin that you need to get. I'll get it down. I had some easy chippies, and I missed them."

Sefko and Avery reminds us it was just one game.
But one game is not the barometer for any team.
