Spurs Offense: The Mavs might be a vastly improved defensive team but it does not have anyone who can guard Tim Duncan one-on-one. Duncan abused the three Dallas centers who guarded him in Game 1. If they allowed him 30 points in Game 1 with only 36 hours rest, imagine what Duncan might do with two days rest. If I were Gregg Popovich after watching Game 1, I would give Duncan plenty of rest between games and then force feed him the ball throughout Game 2.
