Dennis Smith Jr. continues to stake his claim to Rookie of the Year frontrunner status, and the San Antonio Spurs are the latest team in the Dallas Mavericks teenage dynamo’s path.
The Spurs wanted no part of Smith defense on this play. The N.C. State product blew by Pau Gasol on the perimeter, and Danny Green decided to preserve his help defense for another day as Smith soared to the rim here.
