The finale of the Texas 4-Step is by far the most competitive game. Spurs pounced on the Warriors, who bowed up and got back in the game after getting down by 22. Spurs 57, Warriors 54 at the half.

Warriors come all the way back, bit by bit, somewhat through attacking certain mismatches (like Tony Parker guarding Shaun Livingston). Now trail 48-45

Wasn't this supposed to be the NBA season that we knew how everything would play out before we got to Halloween? #weknownothing

The Spurs' 22-point lead disintegrated before halftime. The West's top two seeds are trading flurries of punches.

The Pelicans stay with an Anthony Davis-DeMarcus Cousins frontcourt while the Mavericks go small but hold on for a 121-118 victory. Davis finishes with 30 points and 13 rebounds and Cousins has 29 points, 16 rebounds, 6 assists.

Golden State is not going down without a fight. The Warriors have sliced the lead to seven. The electricity in the crowd has turned into anger at refs.

With that Ian Clark 3, the Warriors cut the lead to 10. A good run from the bench in this 2nd quarter so far

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

At the end of the first quarter, the Spurs lead 33-17. San Antonio's largest lead in the first quarter was 22 points.

33-17 Spurs after 1 in an overwhelming performance by San Antonio. Warriors are screwing up in seemingly every aspect, batting a few rebounds to the opponent and missing easy shots

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Spurs played such suffocating defense that it was surprising to see the Warriors score on the final two possessions of the first quarter to pull with 33-17. The Spurs flying out of the gates guaranteed an electric atmosphere in the AT&T Center.

Chris Haynes ESPN Staff Writer 

After one quarter, the San Antonio Spurs have a 33-17 advantage on the Golden State Warriors. They led by as many as 22 points in the quarter.

David West is welcomed back to San Antonio with a round of boos. Spurs fans apparently didn't appreciate him choosing to go to Golden State after spending last season here.

Jeff Hornacek makes it sound as if the veterans will still get minutes in the final games of the season but the club's young players will get some more playing time.

Man, we thought the Spurs dominated the Cavaliers? San Antonio 23, Warriors 3 seven minutes in. A statement week for the Spurs?

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

What a performance by Russell Westbrook in Orlando, leading the Thunder to their largest comeback ever (21 points) with 57 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists in an overtime win. After sinking Dallas two days ago with 12 points in the final three minutes, Westbrook scored 19 in the fourth and hit a 3 with 5 seconds left to force overtime. It clinches a playoff berth for OKC, and is the most points ever in a triple-double.

That JaVale McGee possession will test Shaq's willpower. An off-the-dribble runner that was rejected and a missed wide-open dunk?
