Manu Ginobili and the San Antonio Spurs host Monta Ellis and the Dallas Mavericks tonight at 8:00 p.m CST.

Tony Parker, who has missed the last six games due to injury, looks to play tonight.

Without their French point guard, the Spurs (42-16) haven’t missed a beat. They’ve gone 5-1 due to the incredible play of Tim Duncan, who continues to deliver night in and night out.

The Mavericks haven’t faired quite as well this season as the Spurs, but are still beating expectations.

Dallas is 36-24 and, on Friday, blew a 16-point lead to Chicago, but, at 25.2 points per, are still ranked in the top one-third of the league in fourth quarter scoring.

The Spurs and Mavs are currently first and third in the Southwest Division, respectively.

Staff writer Rhys T-J got a chance to sit down with fellow Fansided website The Smoking Cuban to discuss all things Spurs-Mavs rivalry.
