Can't wait for this one, so I decided to make an early thread.
But ultimately, the Spurs haven't beat Dallas in a playoff series since 2003. And the Spurs stealing home court advantage Wednesday night probably doesn't mean much against the NBA's best road team.
The Mavs were just one game better at home (28-13) than they were on the road (27-14) this season.
"The good thing is we won big road games all season long," Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki said. "We're a good road team, and we have to get a big one Friday."
Duncan's contract is up in 2012, and he said during the All-Star break that he would only extend his career longer if his body will let him.
Duncan chartered career lows in virtually every category this season, including minutes (31.3 per game). Besides playing less and starting his training regiment a month later this season, he also shed 15 pounds.
All to extend his season as long as possible. It's working so far.
"If he's out there on one leg in a wheelchair," Spurs guard Richard Jefferson said, "we're going to get him the ball."
