Rick Carlisle had high praise for rookie Justin Anderson after the first-round pick, who has played sparingly most of the season, was plus-6 in 13 minutes during the Mavs' overtime win in Memphis. "We knew he was a special kid when we drafted him," Carlisle told reporters. "It's been an arduous process getting him to the point where he is now, where he understands what his job is on the team and how to really funnel his energies. But he's doing a good job. He's just got to continue it."

Cuban: Hacking rules keep intrigue in NBA game

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban disagrees with the notion that hacking hurts the game, telling ESPN.com that he believes fans actually feel more part of the game in hack-a-player situations.

Perhaps the only positive from the Mavs' blowout loss is the fact that none of the Dallas starters played more than 26 minutes. Coach Rick Carlisle, who has frequently rested players in back-to-backs, expects all five starters to play Saturday night in Memphis.

Mavs put up 34 in third, still trail by 28

Dallas seemingly threw in the towel in the third quarter after trailing by 36 at halftime, putting in a deep reserve lineup. San Antonio's starters have outscored their counterparts 58-32 with one frame to play. Live on ESPN, WatchESPN

Spurs 88, Mavs 60 after three quarters. Hey, the Mavs won the third quarter.

Spurs no stranger to monster leads

This is the second time this season that the Spurs have led by 36 at half. They're the third team in the shot-clock era to do that twice in a season and the first since the 1988-89 Suns. Live on ESPN, WatchESPN

Mavs hit lowlight at halftime

San Antonio's 62-26 halftime lead is the largest halftime deficit Dallas has faced in franchise history, eclipsing a 35-point halftime deficit against the Kings in 1992. That 1992-93 Mavericks team finished 11-71 for the season. Halftime stats
