If there’s one thing the Spurs want to avoid, it’s beating themselves.
These days, it appears that may be the only way the team loses a game.
The Dallas Mavericks were hoping that was the case after the first quarter of Sunday’s game, but in the end the score favored the Spurs, 112-83, at AT&T Center, where the team remains undefeated (24-0) this season.
LaMarcus Aldridge scored 13 of his game-high 23 points in the third quarter, while Boris Diaw led the Spurs’ bench, scoring 16 of the 66 points.
Aldridge and Diaw also helped limit Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki to a season-low four points on 2-of-10 shooting.
