The Story:

The San Antonio Spurs are 13 - 1. Yep, you read that right. They are riding a 12 game winning streak, and they are doing so with a new, fast-paced style of play. The Mavericks have just come off of two key wins, but they were hard-fought. If they have any hope of avenging their loss(es) last season, they'll have to adjust to the new-look Spurs.
