And Spurs tie the series to 1-1.
His minutes may have lessened but Tim Duncan never ceased to ensure that everything goes well for the San Antonio Spurs. And this was evident game 2, Spurs winning against the Dallas Mavericks 102-88. Duncan dished out 25 points with 17 boards. Manu Ginobili delivered a 23-point second game against the Mavericks. Now, the series goes to the AT&T Center where the Mavs play two games before returning to American Airlines Center.
Right at the Mavs’ side, Jason Terry racked up 27 points followed by Dirk Nowitzki’s 24 points at the score boards and 10 rebounds. Box scores also showed Jason Kidd doing what he’s good at – assisting, finishing the game with eight of it.
The Spurs even the series and has to push their way to a 5-game run, which includes two straight games at home.
Duncan, who’s turning 34 this Sunday, may be growing old but he’s definitely not stirred up by that fact. What made him more efficient this season, is his wiser grasp to the game. “He’ll never lose his skill set,” Dirk on Tim.
As many of his critics say, Duncan is growing old. But certainly, it’s not ALWAYS about the age, right?
Love you Johnny Ludden!
