The Western Conference match up between the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs kicks off on Sunday afternoon, with the two Texas rivals looking to get off to an early advantage in the NBA postseason.
San Antonio is one of the favorites to bring home the 2014 NBA title, after putting together another impressive 60-win season.
This series features two of the leagues veteran stars in Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan, and Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle believes that will be a treat for the fans and that everyone should tune in.
“This is a treat for people that appreciate NBA basketball and the history of the game,” Carlisle said, via ESPN.com. “And you’ve got two guys whose love and respect for the game is so high and their work ethic and standards are so high. They’ve kept it going in their mid-30s as well as anybody I’ve ever seen.”
