Spurs Record Largest Halftime Lead of Any Mavs Opponent


A large San Antonio contingent in the Dallas crowd chanted “go, Spurs, go” during a timeout with the Mavericks on their way to the biggest halftime deficit in franchise history.

The home team never gave its fans much of a chance to respond. Kawhi Leonard scored 16 of his 23 points in the first half and the Spurs cruised through the second half of a 116-90 blowout of the Mavericks on Friday night. Patty Mills added 10 of his 16 points before halftime, when the Spurs led by 36 at 62-26 to top Dallas’ biggest previous deficit by a point from Dec. 29, 1992, at Sacramento. That 58-point loss to the Kings (139-81) was the worst in Dallas history.
