The 2014 NBA playoffs live stream and TV coverage continues Friday with three huge games on the schedule including the battle for the State of Texas when the San Antonio Spurs take on the Dallas Mavericks from Big D. The Spurs lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 but these Mavericks aren't throwing in the towel just yet in this best-of-seven NBA playoff live stream series.
According to CBS Sports on May 2, the Spurs took the upper hand in this see-saw series best-of-seven series with a 109-103 victory in Game 5. San Antonio has a chance to close the series out tonight in Dallas or Sunday fans will see a winner-take-all Game 7 back in San Antonio. Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki knows his team can't look ahead to a possible Game 7. All that matters is tonight's Game 6.
"The way you've got to look at it is you've got to win one home game," said Nowitzki, whose Mavericks were up 3-2 when they lost Game 6 in Dallas eight years ago. "We worry about everything else after that. Fun set-up tomorrow, one game to win at home."
Nowitzki knows that to beat the Spurs you have to slow down their "Big 3" - something many teams haven't been able to do for the last decade. Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan have once again led the Spurs to not only another great regular season, but they are once again on the brink of reaching the Western Conference semi-finals.
With Parker, Ginobili and Duncan all averaging over 15 points per game, it is hard for any team to focus on which player to stop on San Antonio. The years may continue to pile up, but the Spurs seem ageless as they continue their winning ways. Las Vegas odds makers have San Antonio listed as a 3 point favorite with the over/under number set at 197.5.
Fans can catch all of the action on ESPN nationally and streaming live online through Watch ESPN. Will the Spurs advance to Round 2 tonight, or will Dallas force a Game 7 Sunday?
