Some of the latest top news on the NBA action are on how the San Antonio Spurs seized the momentum back in their opening-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers, winning Tuesday’s Game 5 by a score of 111-107 at Staples Center to take a 3-2 series lead.
Prior to the game, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich wasn’t concerned about the team’s lackluster shooting to that point. Legendary Spurs power forward Tim Duncan continued to defy his 39 years of age in having another stupendous postseason performance, putting up 21 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, three steals and a key block.
San Antonio’s bench was huge as well, getting three double-figure contributions, including Manu Ginobili with 14 points, 13 from Patty Mills and a big 10 from Boris Diaw. Mills drained all four of his three-point attempts, while Diaw hit one late to give San Antonio its biggest lead at 103-96.
There was a noticeable difference in the way San Antonio moved the ball as the game wore on. The Clippers also have the less experienced team, and there was a sense their best players were pressing. It wasn’t as though the Spurs were forcing shots from the outside. It was their execution that achieved clean looks.
Now, all the momentum has swung back to San Antonio as it returns to the AT&T Center for Game 6.
The Dallas Mavericks finally found the formula to force the Houston Rockets into a competitive series. It just happened too late. The Houston Rockets eliminated the Dallas Mavericks from the 2015 NBA playoffs with a 103-94 victory in Game 5 on Tuesday at Toyota Center. As Game 5 wound down, the Rockets’ Twitter account decided to use emoticons to tell the Mavericks that the series was over.
James Harden scored 28 points and Dwight Howard had a double-double as the Rockets earned a 103-94 victory over Dallas on Tuesday to take their best-of-seven series in five games. It marks the Rockets’ first postseason series win since 2009. Houston will move on to play either the San Antonio Spurs or Los Angeles Clippers, which are currently tied, 2-2, in their series.
