The worst-case scenario for these Mavericks might be sneaking into the playoffs and drawing the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs. By all indications, that series just be just as brief as last season’s sweep at the hands of the Mavs’ other Interstate 35 neighbors, the Oklahoma City Thunder. Don’t be fooled by Friday night’s final score. This loss was a lot more lopsided than 113-107 indicates.
