This is the fourth and final time these two teams will play one another this season. Dallas has so far lost two of the three games that have already been played, by a combined 13 points. The Mavericks won the last matchup earlier this week in San Antonio when Kawhi Leonard made his season debut.
Yogi Ferrell continued his good play as a starter with Dennis Smith Jr. out. He had 16 points and eight rebounds — one of five Mavericks in double-figures. Salah Mejiri caught the attention of the Internet when he tried to trip Patty Mills as the two teams were leaving the court at the end of the game. We’ll see if that situation is over.
Dallas’ last game on Thursday was a 15-point loss at Golden State. Most teams are in action on Friday night, including the Spurs, but the Mavs get the night off. They’ll use that time wisely. They’ll have to if they want any shot at beating San Antonio twice in a week.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs haven’t played since that game on Tuesday. Kawhi Leonard played 16 minutes and scored 12 points on 6-for-12 shooting. He was particularly aggressive but that isn’t out of the ordinary. It’s unknown how Gregg Popovich will use him in the back-to-back the Spurs have coming.
San Antonio is in Houston on Friday night for a showdown with the best team in the NBA. Leonard’s presence will bring some excitement to that game. He’s had some fun battles with James Harden in recent years. It may be that Pop plays Leonard more minutes on Friday night and takes it easy on him in this game (if he even plays at all). But outsiders never know what Popovich is apt to do.
What I do know is that San Antonio’s rotation looks a lot deeper with Leonard in it. The Spurs used 13 players in Tuesday’s game because there are that many bodies competing for minutes. That’s a good problem to have and Popovich will take full advantage of the competition within the team to get the most out of everybody in these regular season games.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction: San Antonio gets its revenge and takes the game and season series.
It won’t be an easy spot flying back from Houston to play this game the next day but the Spurs won’t lost twice in a week to Dallas. It’s very possible this could be the game standing between them and an 0–3 week, too.
The Spurs will put their best foot forward.
