With the best record in the league, San Antonio hosts Dallas in a Western Conference first-round matchup, tipping off Sunday. The Spurs swept the season series, but the games were close and hard-fought. An absolute key revolves around how the Spurs handle Dirk Nowitzki and who else will step up their production for the Mavericks. Monta Ellis is the likely candidate, while Kawhi Leonard has become a welcome key component for the veteran San Antonio squad. Dallas has lost 15 of its last 21 at San Antonio.

Prediction: San Antonio 106, Dallas 98
