TV:

The Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs collide at the AT&T Center tonight.

The Mavericks had lost three of their last four games before winning at Chicago by 83-77 on Friday. Dirk Nowitzki led the scoring with 21 points while Deron Williams had 18 points as the Mavs fought back from a 10-point half-time deficit to win their first game against a team with a winning record since their win over the Warriors back on Dec. 30. With the win, Dallas improves to 23-18 on the season overall and 12-11 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Spurs will be going for their 11th straight win tonight after taking down the Cavaliers by 99-95 in a marquee matchup on Thursday. Tony Parker continued his return to form with a team-high 24 points while Kawhi Leonard added 20 points and 10 rebounds as the Spurs came back from an early double-digit deficit to beat the Cavs and remain undefeated at home. With the win, San Antonio improves to 35-6 on the season and 23-0 at home.

In ATS trends, the Mavs are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games overall and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five road games, while the Spurs are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games following a win and 25-10 ATS in their last 35 home games.

Head to head, the Mavs are 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings overall and 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings in San Antonio.

The Mavs played well to escape Chicago with a narrow win on Friday, but I can't see them getting anywhere near a win tonight against the Spurs who have won 32 straight at home. I'm taking the San Antonio to win this one by double digits against a Mavs team struggling for consistency.
