I'm not sure about the Spurs...they have cooled some since they won like 11 of 12...I think the Mavs could really use this win though...Howard will be the main attraction though...Not sure what L8 did against the Spurs before...

Laettner played pretty well last time but he got into early foul trouble (surprise, surprise) and ended up cooling off while on the bench. The Spurs made some incredibly tight defensive rotations against the Mavs that night, forcing Fin and Dirk to make a lot of bad shots and turnovers. It'll be interesting to see how they handle the Mavs with both Nash and Howard in the mix..who are they going to double team? I hope Howard can adapt to the Mavs' system quickly (kind of like Mutombo in his debut against the Pistons last night).

I don't see any problem with Howard fitting in. He'll probably look a little lost and confused tonight but that's to be expected. I'd say give him 2 full games until he's 100% comfortable.

Good thing they play the Clips and Grizz the next two i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif .

I see this as a game the Mavs can win. Like Rob R W said, who are the Spurs going to double-team? The last game they used Duncan to double-team Fin and it took him out of his game. Same thing with Dirk. One of the keys to the game is that who ever isn't double-teamed, that person makes his shots. I know that goes for any game but if Fin is double-teamed, Dirk, Nash and Howard need to hit their shots. And so on. BUT, the key to the game is to not focus on Duncan alone. Like the Laker game, it was guys like Rider and Fox that hurt us more than Shaq and Kobe. Don't let the other guys hurt us. I can't remember if Nash played in the last game or not, if not, his presence will surely make a difference. Plus, we have a healthy Buck back to pester someone. And we have the hustle of Najera back which was sorely missed. He may not have as good a game as he did against Boston (9pts, 12rbs) but he does work his butt off out there. Another guy that might help tonight is Obinna Ekezie (don't laugh, I didn't say he would be a hero) because of his size in the middle. I didn't realize how big that guy is and his size is something we haven't had in the middle before.

The only place I see Ekezie helping out much is against Shaq. Finally we have someone who can actually put a body on him. Don't have to watch Bradley get thrown around like a rag doll any more.

Well, spurs were the better team tonight. IMO, difference was:

At the end of the game, you don't have the threat of devin driving and scoring or kicking out. AJ knew this, sits JK, and we all know JT is more of shooter than a driver. Nonetheless, he drives and the leagues best defender swats it.
