San Antonio Spurs: Beaten By Mavericks, Vince Carter At Buzzer In Game 3

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

On Saturday the eighth-seeded Dallas Mavericks stunned the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs 109-108 on Vince Carter‘s buzzer-beating 3-point shot. Just 1.7 seconds earlier Manu Ginobili gave San Antonio the lead during the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

Fittingly Carter, who made the most triples off the bench this year, double-pumped prompting Ginobili, who didn’t score until 4:32 remained in the third period, to fly past him for the game-winner with all zeroes on the clock.

Through two contests eighth-seeded Dallas’ physical play had gotten the better of the Spurs’ free-flowing offense. The Mavs, however, couldn’t finish the opener losing 90-85. Instead of putting their heads down Dallas destroyed San Antonio 113-92 during Game 2 and had a little luck on their side during Game 3.

The Spurs now find themselves in a Game 7 mentality during their next contest Monday despite having a Game 5 and possibly a Game 7 at the AT&T Center.

    This was an awesome game and good for Vince Carter. I’m starting to believe the Mavs can actually win the series, but they’re going to have to win Game 4.

    By far the best Mavs/Spurs game in a while. I think San Antonio wins Game 4. This was one the Spurs up by 5 with 2 minutes to go had so I guess we’re even in that respect with Dallas folding to open the series.

    If mavs win game 4, they can take the series but i strongly feel that if the spurs get this game 4, being home for games 5 and 7 will be too much with the spurs given more time to adapt and more energy from home. Such a good series!
