The San Antonio Spurs look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. On the season, the Spurs are averaging 102.8 points on 46.3 percent shooting and are allowing 97.8 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 16 points and 7.3 rebounds while Tony Parker is averaging 14.9 points and 4.9 assists.

The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 50.7 percent from the field in their last five games and have won 12 of their last 15 games when topping 100 points. The Spurs have won nine of their last 10 games on their home court. Aron Baynes is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Mavericks are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Spurs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The Mavericks are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in San Antonio and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall.
The Spurs just aren't consistent enough for me, and the Mavs usually play SA well as they've won five of the last nine meetings outright. I'll take the points here.
