The battle for Texas is on. The Dallas Mavericks look to put an end to the Spurs home undefeated record when these two teams meet on Sunday night.
The Spurs will welcome the extra day of rest as they were last in action on Thursday, while the Mavs took the court on Friday.
Dallas used a giant 2nd half defensively to lock down and beat the Bulls in Chicago. San Antonio put their undefeated home record on the line against the Cavaliers on TNT Thursday and after trailing at half, recovered and adjusted to a grab a win and stay unbeaten.
The Mavericks have their work cut out for the remainder of the season.
While there is still plenty of time, they already trail the top 4 teams in the west by a pretty good margin and will have to deal with the log jam for the 5-8 seeds the rest of the way. Dallas currently holds that 5 seed, but are up on the 6th and 7th spots by just a 1 and 2 games.
They came away with a huge road win on Friday as they trailed the Bulls at half as it looked they had nothing going for them offensively. They made a solid turn around in the 3rd quarter and put the game away in the 4th as the Bulls had no answer for the Mavs defensive adjustments.
With the win, Dallas improved to over .500 on the road at 12-11 SU now, but they still haven’t hit the 100 point mark in terms of points per game away from home. They are averaging just 99.2 points per road game this season.
The Spurs were tested on Thursday, but behind Tim Duncan and a big 2nd half from the Spurs defensively, they held the Cavaliers down, improving their home record once again.
With the win, San Antonio is now a still perfect 23-0 at home this season. They did however fail to cover the number against the Cavaliers, dropping their ATS at home to 16-7.
Still, the Spurs remain one of the best bets in the NBA overall as they are 28-13 ATS.
It’s tough to pick just one category that sticks out with this team too. They get production from just about every playing on this roster. They also are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. The opposition scores just 89 points against them per game.
Back on 11/25 Dallas gave the Spurs all they could handle inside the AT&T Center, but San Antonio eventually prevailed for a 88-83 victory.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Spurs are just too good to pass up at home. They not only win, but more times than not they cover too, which is quite impressive as they’ve become big home favorites on just about every occasion.
Here, they just simply have too much on both sides of the ball for Dallas. This Spurs team can score and get defensive stops everytime down. With the way the Spurs bench produces too, this is another spot where San Antonio can produce a lopsided home win.
