The San Antonio Spurs look to get back on the winning track as they tip off their season series with the Dallas Mavericks from American Airlines Center on Thursday. The Spurs are coming off of an overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers and are currently on a three-game losing streak.
Jakob Poeltl has had a quick start to the season and is fresh off of a 27-point, 14-rebound performance while Devin Vassell put up 19 points for the second time this season.
The Mavericks won two out of three matchups last season and have won five of the last seven against San Antonio. The Spurs won the most recent game between the two by a score of 119-117 on April 11th, 2021.

San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction
Despite starting the season 1-3, the Spurs have been in every game but have stumbled to cross the finish line. This is expected with such a young team lacking a true superstar closer.
Still, San Antonio's defense has been encouraging to begin the season, and the Mavericks haven't been great offensively (24th in offensive rating).
Luka Doncic is always going to get his, so this one will come down to how well the Spurs can close out on shooters like Tim Hardaway Jr and Dorian Finney-Smith.
With Kristaps Porzingis (back) sitting out, I'm giving a slight edge to a hungry Spurs team desperate for a win, but it'll be close.
Spurs 107, Mavericks 102
