Final: The Spurs were utterly dominant with their season on the line, leading by 14 late in the first quarter, 29 late in the second, and by as many as 31 after a Dallas rally in the third to finish off their first-round series in emphatic fashion, 111-82 Sunday at the AT&T Center.

The Spurs advance to face Portland in the Western Conference semifinals. Game 1 is Tuesday at the AT&T Center.

Tony Parker had one of his best games of the season, scoring 24 of his game-high 32 in the first half. Manu Ginobili bounced back from a poor Game 6 with 20 points in 24 minutes, and five other Spurs scored at least seven. Dirk Nowitzki had 22 points on 21 shots for the Mavericks, who struggled throughout to manufacture any consistent offense.

The Spurs were doubling their shooting percentage at one point late in the first half, 70-35. The Mavericks did climb to within 14, 75-61, early in the third quarter. But the Spurs responded with a 16-4 surge to push their lead back over 20 points.

End 3rd quarter: Going super-small with Vince Carter at power forward, the Mavericks took advantage of a sluggish Spurs start to cut the deficit to 14 early in the quarter. But the Spurs restored order with a 16-4 run, and now lead by 26 heading into the fourth on Manu Ginobili’s 3-pointer just before the buzzer. Tony Parker has 29 points in 29 minutes, while Ginobili has 18 off the bench.

Halftime: A 9-2 run by the Mavericks to close the half marred things just a tad. But the Spurs otherwise could have scarcely played much better, leading by as many as 29 points and shooting better than 70 percent for much of the first half as they seek to finish Dallas off Sunday at the AT& Center.

Tony Parker has been brilliant, scoring 24 points on 9-for-12 shooting in 19 minutes. Teammate Tim Duncan has 12 points, while Manu Ginobili has bounced back from a poor Game 6 to score 11 with three rebounds and four assists. Dirk Nowitzki has 17 points for the Mavericks, who are shooting just 42.9 percent.

The Spurs raced out to a 30-16 lead late in the first quarter, then took their largest lead, 64-35, with a 27-10 surge. Dallas finally punched back late in the first half as Devin Harris drilled a 3-pointer just before the buzzer.
