The Dallas Mavericks invade the AT&T Center to take on the San Antonio Spurs tonight.
In the second game of a home and home set, the Dallas Mavericks travel to the AT&T Center to battle the San Antonio Spurs after winning by 101-94 at home on Tuesday. Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons scored 15 points apiece while no other player finished in double digits in scoring except for Monta Ellis who carried the team with a season-high 38 points on 16 of 27 shooting, just two nights after shooting just four for 22 on Sunday in a loss at Phoenix. With the win, Dallas improves to 45-27 overall which has them just half a game behind the Spurs in the Western Conference standings.

As for the Spurs, they've since returned home and are coming off an impressive 130-91 demolition of the Thunder thanks to a balanced scoring effort. Tony Parker led the way with an efficient 21 points on 10 of 14 shooting while Boris Diaw added 19 points off the bench, but this was truly a team effort as the Spurs shot a blistering 58 percent from the field and 13 of 21 from the three point line in the easiest of wins. San Antonio has now won four of their last five to improve to 45-26 overall.
In ATS trends, the Mavs are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 0-6 ATS in their last six road games, while the Spurs are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
Head to head, the Mavs are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall and 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings in San Antonio.
I know the Mavs are fresh off a win against the Spurs, but I expect the tables to be turned on this one. The Spurs looked red-hot in their last win over the Thunder and should be good enough to keep it going tonight.
