San Antonio Spurs v Dallas Mavericks

Saturday February 6, 10.30 am,  American Airlines Centre Texas, Live on FOX

Game rating – Spurs 105 v Mavericks 91

This match is 1st versus 3rd from the South-West with the all-conquering San Antonio Spurs (41-8) travelling to Dallas to take on the Mavericks (28-24).  These teams have contrasting form lines coming into this match with the Spurs maintaining a magnificent winning strike rate which includes a best home court tally of 27-0 and they can match the franchise best 50 game start to a season if they win this match.  The Spurs were far too good for the Pelicans at home (97-110) equaling the spread on Wednesday while the Mavericks let supporters down, losing at home to the Heat (93-90) as -3.5 favourites.


These teams have met once this year in San Antonio on January 17 with the Spurs inflicting the worst defeat of the year against the Mavericks (83-112).
However when travelling to Dallas the Spurs have won their past two encounters which halted a 7 zip run to the Mavs.  Spurs will be without veteran guard Manu Ginoboli and also Centre Tim Duncan while the Mavericks may regain leading point guard Devon Williams who missed against the Heat.  The ratings have a clear 14 point win to the Spurs so the spread of -6.5 looks inviting.
