The two teams from Texas will meet today at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. This will be the first of 4 matches for these two teams from the Southwest Division.
The Mavericks have been one of the most exciting teams in the League, specially because their young core is playing extremely well together. Doncic and Porzingis are the faces of the franchise, with the Slovenian showing amazing stats: 28,5 points per games, 10.7 rebounds and 9.1 assists. The two are complementing each other really well and the team is showing solid performances so far in the league, having a positive record (7-5) and inside the playoff spots.
The team comes from a tough home win against the defending champions Toronto Raptors, after a 3-game road-trip where they lost 2 games. Offensively, the Mavericks are ranked 9 in the league, scoring more than 100 points in every game.
The Spurs are coming from a 5-game losing streak, and tonight they'll have a tough challenge against their state rivals. Popovich's team are struggling in away games, having won just 1 of the 5 games played. It was at Chase Center against the weak Golden State Warriors. For tonight, the team will rely on Dejounte Murray's defensive abilities to contain Luka Doncic, as the Slovenian has been producing stellar numbers everu single game.
The Mavericks are in good shape and tonight we expect them to win against their state rivals.
Look for the Mavericks -4.5!
