The Texas teams usually push each other but this season there is definitely tiers between them. Houston is at the top, followed by San Antonio and then Dallas. Despite that San Antonio is probably the least interesting of the group.
Though they are favored at home.
Dallas is going to get some wins they probably shouldn’t this season. This is a spot where that could happen as the Spurs are not overwhelming anyone this season.
Dallas is 2-0 at home and 0-3 on the road. This is not a long trip but this is a young team still trying to figure out how to win, anywhere. There are some matchups to exploit but at the same time they need to make some threes and play a complete game.
One thing to know is that the Mavs are at home against a rugged Utah team the night before. That Jazz team is on the second of a back to back so Dallas might be able to sun them coming off a win at New Orleans before they hit the road.
Heading into Sunday both JJ Barea and Dennis Smith Jr were both probable. Those are the two quickest ball handlers that the Mavericks have and they usually create advantages. San Antonio is unsettled at the point too so that was a spot they were looking to exploit.
Luka Doncic is still just a rookie but he has already shown that he is a player. Not sure how the Spurs matchup with him and how he will respond on the back to back. Speed is not really his game but at the same time he probably can’t afford to be fatigued.
The situation here is not good for the Mavericks to get their first road win of the season. If the number grows they could be a cover.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have been trading wins and losses all season, most recently beating the Lakers om Saturday night. We are still waiting to see what this team really is. There is no doubt they have some players but they are not what they used to be. Especially not on defense.
I think it was in Sports Illustrated where they were suggesting DeMar DeRozan become the de facto point guard for this team.
I am not sure if Coach Pop read that but the newly acquired wing is leading the team in scoring and assists. He is a good player who gets better every year so maybe this is his evolution.
Bryn Forbes has been playing the small guard role and as long as he is making more than 40% of his three pointers you can keep him on the floor. If/when that dries up the Spurs will be in a precarious situation.
For the first time in recent memory they don’t have multiple good deep shooters.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
There might be a changing of the guard in the state of Texas. Houston is already at the top of the triangle and maybe Dallas is looking to jump up a spot.
Dallas should be able to get this one to a nice pace but I don’t think they are going to be able to make enough shots to steal this first road win.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs -6.5
I want to believe in the young Mavs but the spot is terrible. Whether this one is low scoring or high scoring they come up short.
