The Dallas Mavericks ease to a 113-92 win over the San Antonio Spurs to level their first-round playoff series against the Western Conference's top seeds.

The Dallas Mavericks cruised to a 113-92 win over the San Antonio Spurs to level their first-round playoff series after two games.

The Western Conference's top seeds comfortably beat the Mavericks in the opening game of their series at the weekend, but made too many errors in the second meeting between the two sides.

The visitors took the lead early in the second quarter and never fell behind again, forcing numerous turnovers to prevent the Spurs from getting back into the game.

Monta Ellis and Shawn Marion combined for 41 points, while Dirk Nowitzki added 16.

Manu Ginobili led the Spurs with 27, but only Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, who had 23 between them, also reached double figures, missing 11 of their 29 efforts from the free throw line and converting just five of their 14 three-pointer shots.

San Antontio will travel to the Mavericks' American Airlines Center for their first away game of the series on Saturday.
