GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs

The Battle of the B Teams

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at San Antonio Spurs Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs

WHAT: A lot of players you’ve never heard of on both sides.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. CT

HOW: TXA21 or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: This morning, Rick Carlisle finally (officially) flew the proverbial white flag by announcing that for the rest of the season, the vets will play limited minutes while the younger guys will get an extended look. This isn’t really that surprising, of course: with no playoffs on the line, there’s no reason to risk Dirk’s nagging Achilles or Seth’s nagging shoulder or any other possible injuries to any other player.

The Spurs, of course, have already clinched and are resting guys for a much different reason. So, for tonight’s 9,345th edition of MAVS SPURS, we’ll see a lot of uniforms we don’t recognize, and a lot of random talent evaluation. Maybe we’ll see some more Dirk with a whiteboard. TUNE IN TO FIND OUT!

Go Spurs go. (Am I doing this right?)
