San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have already beaten Dallas twice, once by six and the second time by seven. These two teams will play a fourth time on Saturday to finish up the season series nice and early.
We’ve covered with the Mavericks both times this season because they simply aren’t the sort of team San Antonio blows out. The Spurs will blow out teams that eventually contribute to the blowout themselves. They will crush a team that shoots itself in the foot over and over. They’ll also route teams that expect to be competitive and get frustrated by San Antonio’s scrappy play.
Dallas isn’t really that team. The Mavericks haven’t won a lot this season because they are so young but they are competitive and well-coached and that’s a good formula for covering as a big dog against the Spurs.
They said Kawhi Leonard was going to play against the Suns and he didn’t. They say he might play in this game against Dallas.
The Spurs have won four games in a row and will have a chance to potentially snap Houston’s long winning streak later this week on Friday if the Rockets can hold serve until then. This isn’t a trap spot, however. San Antonio knows it just has to handle the Mavs and handle the Mavs it will do.
There is one problem for Dallas and that is Dennis Smith’s hip injury. He should be ok but Rick Carlisle came out and said up front that the Mavs are going to be cautious and make sure he is 100 percent before he returns. That sounds like he won’t play in this game on Tuesday.
Yogi Ferrell is a capable backup and a good matchup in this game against a veteran Spurs team. He led his team to a close loss in Minnesota the last time out as a starter.
More to my point about the Mavericks losing often but frequently losing close: Dallas has lost three in a row, all on the road: by seven in Boston, seven in Milwaukee and five in Minnesota. The Mavs are well-coached, play hard, want to get better and are not tanking. They aren’t good enough to beat a team like San Antonio but the Spurs just won’t play hard enough to blow them out. They understand what’s at stake.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction: it goes low in Dallas.
No Smith means Dallas will play slower. If Kawhi Leonard plays, Harrison Barnes is going nowhere. The Mavs could really struggle to score but I don’t see San Antonio pulling way ahead, either. This game should be down in the 90s.
