The Dallas Mavericks picked up an impressive win on Feb. 26 in San Antonio against the Spurs. Here are three takeaways from that game.

The Dallas Mavericks traveled to San Antonio to face the Spurs on Wednesday evening. It was the first of a four-game road trip for the Mavericks. They travel to Miami, Minneapolis, and Chicago before returning home.

The Mavs certainly wanted to get the road trip kicked off on the right foot. They won the first two meetings against the Spurs this season. It was the first matchup in San Antonio, though. The Mavericks had not won at the AT&T Center since Jan. 2017.

Dallas ended the drought on Feb. 26. They earned the 109-103 victory for their 36th win on the season. It was actually a rough shooting night for the Mavs. They finished at just 41.9 percent, but they shared the ball and grabbed a W.
