Spurs trouncing Mavs in first half

Dallas only managed 12 points in the first and midway through the second it only has 20 points. That's bad in and of itself, but San Antonio is up to 42 as the Mavericks are getting blitzed at home. Live on ESPN, WatchESPN

Mavs rookie Salah Mejri appeared to talk trash to the Spurs bench after a dunk. With Dallas down 21. Pop just shook his head and smirked.

Lots of blame to go around to explain the Cavs losing that one: J.R Smith for fouling Evan Turner; the refs for calling that questionable call on Smith; Ty Lue for subbing Timofey Mozgov in place of Tristan Thompson to rebound on the Turner FT; Mozgov failing to grab the board when Turner missed; Cavs going 21-for-35 from the FT line.
