Mavericks Vs. Spurs Final Score: San Antonio Blows Out Dallas, 104-87

Guard Daniel Green scored a game-best 18 points and Tim Duncan added a double-double (15 points and 12 rebounds) to help the San Antonio Spurs defeat the Dallas Mavericks, 104-87, in a Western Conference showdown at the AT&T Center.

The Spurs (31-14) earned using a 22-2 run that turned a 63-58 Mavs' lead into a 80-65 Spurs' advantage with about 10 minutes to play. The run featured six of Manu Ginobili's 11 points and was enough to hand Dallas its second straight loss and tied the four-game season series at two wins apiece.

The Spurs' victory also came without point guard Tony Parker and center Tiago Splitter both out because of injuries.

Dirk Nowitzki finished with a 16 points for the Mavs (27-22), while Jason Terry added a team-high 18 off the bench. Forward Shawn Marion tallied 11 in his return to the lineup after missing the previous game, a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, while point guard Jason Kidd scored 14 points.

Overall, Dallas was dominated on the boards 52-34 and had its bench out-scored 40-23.
