Western Conference Playoff Update: April 11

No surprises in the standings this morning. Last night everyone did what they were supposed to: The Mavericks trounced Sactown and the Nuggets melted down when the Spurs came to town. Can't help but hope to matchup with Denver in the first round. 'Spose I should be careful what I wish for though.

San Antonio Spurs 104 Denver Nuggets 85:  Ugly. There were 34 combined turnovers between the two teams and the Nuggets decided to lose their minds with 4 technicals (Carmelo was ejected).The Spurs sported 6 players in double figures while the Nuggets shot 39%. (Game Recap)

Dallas Mavericks 126 Sacramento Kings 108: Dirk was huge with 39 Terry added 25 off the pine and the Mavericks played like a #2 seed should play, pounding the Kings by 18. (Game Recap)
