Description: Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki had an awful game Sunday versus San Antonio.
Insight: Dirk (11 points, eight rebounds) made just four of his 14 field goal attempts and was invisible when the Mavs needed him most in the fourth quarter (0-for-4, two fouls, one turnover in the final six minutes of regulation). The Spurs have given him trouble all season as the seven-footer is averaging just 17 ppg in five games against them in 2013-14 (season average is 21.7 ppg).
Description: Tim Duncan delivered a sensational effort Sunday in a Game 1 victory over Dallas.
Insight: Nine of Duncan\'s game-high 27 points came in the fourth quarter as the Spurs quickly erased a ten-point deficit to win by five. The veteran has averaged 20.2 ppg against the Mavericks this season (five games).
Description: Atlanta right fielder Jason Heyward had an encouraging afternoon Sunday against the Mets.
Insight: Heyward finished 3-for-6 with a double and two singles as the Braves fell 4-3 in extra innings. Prior to Sunday, Heyward had just one hit in his previous 16 at bats. Even after Sunday\'s three-hit performance, Heyward\'s average is still only .171.
Description: The Raiders are prepared to waive quarterback Terrelle Pryor on Monday if they can\'t work out a trade in the next 24 hours. SOURCE: Alex Marvez, Fox Sports 1
Insight: Pryor became expendable when the team traded for Matt Schaub this offseason. Pryor is an elite runner (his 576 rushing yards led all quarterbacks last season) but has struggled passing the ball in his two seasons with Oakland (69.3 QB rating, 56.3 completion percentage in 14 games).
