Last weekend's Game 7 meeting between the Mavericks and Spurs was not their first; they also met in an absolutely epic Game 7 in 2006. Trailing in the series 3-1, the Spurs came roaring back to host the deciding game in San Antonio, only to then see Dallas go 15-for-18 from the field in the first quarter and open up a 20-point lead late in the second.
The Spurs were undeterred, however, and behind 41 points from Tim Duncan came roaring back to tie the game at 101 with just over a minute to go. After they took a three-point lead on a Manu Ginobili three, Dirk Nowitzki (who scored 37) got an And-one on the other end to send the game to overtime. The Mavericks opened up OT with hoops on three straight possessions, putting the game out of reach.
