In the final game seven of the first round of the 2014 NBA playoffs, fans can watch the San Antonio Spurs vs. the Dallas Mavericks live online. The San Antonio Spurs are trying to avoid becoming the first one seed to ever lose a game seven against an eight seed.
While the Indiana Pacers limped into the first round of the 2014 NBA playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks, the Spurs were a strong one seed against the Dallas Mavericks. Many analysts picked the San Antonio Spurs to return to the NBA finals for a rematch with the Miami Heat. Surprisingly, the Spurs have had all they can handle in the first six games with the Dallas Mavericks.
Thanks to a resurgent Vince Carter, the Dallas Mavericks have given the Spurs fits. Anyone who has tuned in to watch the San Antonio Spurs vs. the Dallas Mavericks live online have seen two teams evenly matched. Dallas is shooting 46 percent from the field, while San Antonio is shooting only a slightly better 48 percent. The Mavericks are making almost two more three pointers a game, which has kept them in the series.
Probably the biggest disappointment for the Spurs has been the inconsistency from Danny Green. During last year’s playoffs, Green kept knocking down big shot after big shot to help the Spurs advance. That momentum carried into the 2013-2014 season, where he averaged nine points per game and two three pointers. In the series against the Mavericks, Green is averaging only five points and one three per game. Things were so bad, Green had all but disappeared in games three through five.
Those who were able to watch the San Antonio Spurs vs. the Dallas Mavericks live online in game six would have noticed a more familiar Danny Green. Unfortunately, it didn’t matter as the Mavericks pulled out the win anyway. Coach Greg Popovich has some serious decisions to make headed into the final game of the series. The team has been more successful with Green not in the game. As always, expect Popovich to mix things up until the last minute.
The winner of the Spurs and Mavericks series will take on the Portland Trailblazers, not exactly a reward. The Trailblazers may be one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now, as Damian Lillard shows no signs of slowing down. Whoever goes on to play the Trailblazers will have to be ready to score in bunches.
Enjoy the final first round game of the 2014 NBA playoffs! Tune in here to watch the San Antonio Spurs vs. the Dallas Mavericks live online.
