GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs

The Mavericks still have a chance at the 5-seed, but they'll need a win over San Antonio plus some help to get it done.

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs

WHAT: Game No. 82

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT


THE STORY: Seeding is at stake for Dallas, while the Spurs wait to see who they'll host in round one of the playoffs. For Dallas, a win means they clinch the 6-seed and a date with Oklahoma City, with an opportunity to move up to the 5-seed should Denver beat Portland later in the evening. A jump to the 5-seed would mean a first-round matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers and DeAndre Jordan in the first round. A Dallas win also means that San Antonio would face Memphis in the first round.

A San Antonio win means that Dallas needs a Memphis loss to Golden State to retain the 6-seed. An unlikely Memphis win would drop Dallas to the 7-seed, where they'd face the Spurs in the first round.
