Jae Crowder also turned in a solid game as he finished with 22 points to go along with 8 rebounds. Crowder has averaged 14.6 points to go along with 5.2 rebounds this season.

Before heading back home, Dallas will have one final road game to complete their 3 game swing. They fell in Oklahoma City to start things off and will now complete it with a date in San Antonio.

Free NBA Prediction:
Dallas will certainly be in a bit of a letdown spot here.
After falling to Cleveland in overtime at home, they’ve played tough games against the Thunder and Bulls. Now, before they head back home for this one they get a chance at San Antonio on Sunday. With this being the 2nd leg of a back-to-back, combined with them being incredibly invested in ending the Spurs home winning streak, this has the making of a very sluggish Mavs performance.
