SAN ANTONIO — Every time the Dallas Mavericks tried to make a push Wednesday, Tiago Splitter offered resistance.

The San Antonio center produced nine points, six rebounds and four assists in the fourth quarter alone, helping the Spurs defeat the Dallas Mavericks 109-103 to take a three-games-to-two lead in their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

The Spurs can close out the series Friday in Dallas.
