Spurs beat Mavericks 101-100 in Becky Hammon's coaching debut

The NBA's defending champs start their 2014-15 season on the right foot as Hammon begins her career as an assistant coach.

The San Antonio Spurs defeated the Dallas Mavericks 101-100, where they shot 52.9% from the field, and also made 14-of-28 of their three point attempts. The Spurs' Big Three of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili, as expected, had good games, though they also committed 11 of San Antonio's 21 turnovers. Monta Ellis led Dallas' scorers with 26 points in the losing effort.

The game was also significant since Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon now has a game under her belt as the first full-time female NBA assistant coach in league history. And I have a round-up of some notable tweets below on the game, and with Hammon:

Great to see Hammon's team win, and best of luck to her as she continues her coaching career.
