Watching the Mavs watch party at the American Airlines Center was a hoot. Especially with the Mavs winning. I told my daughter Lacey, who lives in San Antonio and is a huge Spurs fan, that we would be lucky to win this game. Especially cause it was on the road.
The Mavericks didn’t feel like they stole Game 1 against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. Their 105-97 victory at AT&T Center wasn’t a heist. It was about as thorough a playoff road victory as you can get when the teams are close to evenly matched.
Who’d have thought it possible? The Mavericks were a timid road team all season. Suddenly, they came out with the passion and grit that usually belongs to the Spurs. The Mavericks may not be in control of this best-of-7 series. But they certainly sent a loud, clear message to many of their doubters.
Meanwhile, I was enjoying the fans have a great time as evidenced here.
