Spurs 92, Mavericks 91
Tim Duncan had 28 points and 19 rebounds and the host San Antonio Spurs escaped with a dramatic victory over Dallas, sweeping their season series with the Mavericks for the first time in 15 years. Gary Neal added 16 points and Kawhi Leonard had 12 for San Antonio, now 50-16.
Dirk Nowitzki had 21 points and 11 rebounds for Dallas, which had a four-game winning streak snapped. San Antonio last swept Dallas during the regular season in 1998.
The Mavericks pulled within 92-91 on a 7-0 run capped by Nowitzki’s fall-away jumper with 28.2 seconds left. After Manu Ginobili missed a jumper, Carter missed a long, fall-away 3 at the buzzer that would have won the game.
