Just when it looked like the San Antonio Spurs might've had their breakthrough win against the Milwaukee Bucks, they laid a complete egg against the 1-6 Indiana Pacers. Now sitting at 2-5, they'll need better all-around effort to make sure they don't fall further in the Western Conference standings.
Shooting 14-for-28 from three against the Pacers, the Spurs executed their offense perfectly well on Monday, but their defense left little to be desired. Against Dallas, they'll need to pay better attention to detail on that end of the floor to get back to winning.
The Mavericks, meanwhile, are looking to rebound from a 125-110 loss to the Miami Heat and defeated the Spurs 104-99 in their recent meeting.

San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction
I should've known the Spurs would be this unpredictable. It seemed like they had all the momentum going for them when they overcame the Bucks in their own building, but then they got slaughtered by the Pacers.
In front of their home crowd, the Spurs should have better energy and show better effort. I'm just not sure that'll be enough against the superstar power of Luka Doncic. Not to mention it seems like Jalen Brunson has the game of his life every time he sees silver and black across the court.
Since I've been wrong for the last three games, I'm gonna try to do San Antonio a favor and predict they drop this one at home.
Mavericks 115, Spurs 110
