(8) DALLAS MAVERICKS (2-2) AT (1) SAN ANTONIO SPURS (2-2), 7 P.M.
(SportsNetwork.com) - The San Antonio Spurs return home for Wednesday's Game 5 of their Western Conference quarterfinals series with the Dallas Mavericks tied 2-2.
San Antonio knotted the series with its Texas rival on Monday night with a 93-89 road victory at American Airlines Center. The two squads head back to AT&T Center Wednesday night, a place the Mavericks won Game 2 handily and should've won Game 1.
"In the playoffs, I don't think teams are ever too satisfied with wins, or ever too depressed with losses," said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. "You just don't have time for it and doesn't do you any good."
In Game 3, Dallas' Vince Carter hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to win the contest.
On Monday, the Spurs put the clamps on the Mavericks late in the game.
