The San Antonio Spurs travel to Dallas on Wednesday night looking to add to the Mavericks misery once more. The Spurs saw a nine game winning streak snapped at home against Orlando Magic yesterday and will be looking to bounce back from that as soon as possible.
San Antonio Spurs Betting Tips
The Spurs are in imperious form at the moment, boasting the best away record in the NBA (10-0). The home defeat to Orlando was puzzling and no doubt gave coach Gregg Popovich plenty to ponder.
Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard averages 24.8 points per game, 6.2 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game. He’s the only player in the NBA this season to average at least 20 points per game and 2 steals per game. He’s backed by a strong line; power forward LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 18.4 points and 6.7 rebounds and center Pau Gasol averages 11.1 points and 7.2 rebounds.
Dallas Mavericks Betting Tips
The Mavs are having a poor season, with a shocking 3-13 record. A large part of that has been the loss of Dirk Nowitzki to age and injury. The 38-year-old has been a large part of Mavs success over the years but in his 18th season the decline was coming. Nowitzki has missed 10 games already this season – almost equalling the last three years combined (14).
If Mavs are to get anything out of this game then they need to guard the 3 point line. The Cavaliers punished the Mavs two games ago with shots from deep and the only team better at 3 pointers than the Cavs in the NBA is the Spurs. Rather than trying to outgun the powerful Spurs offensive lineup they need to slow the pace, and grind out an ugly looking win if at all possible.
