Mavs rookie Salah Mejri appeared to talk trash to the Spurs bench after a dunk. With Dallas down 21. Pop just shook his head and smirked.

Lots of blame to go around to explain the Cavs losing that one: J.R Smith for fouling Evan Turner; the refs for calling that questionable call on Smith; Ty Lue for subbing Timofey Mozgov in place of Tristan Thompson to rebound on the Turner FT; Mozgov failing to grab the board when Turner missed; Cavs going 21-for-35 from the FT line.
