As Dallas heads to San Antonio on Wednesday night for a Western Conference matchup, it will attempt to get beyond its injury problems. The Mavericks have fallen to Memphis in back-to-back games over the weekend, losing three straight games.
Dallas started the season with a record of 22-16 and was still five games above.500 in the middle of February, but since then, it has dropped nine of its last 12 games. On February 23, San Antonio was defeated at home by a score of 142-116 in one of their three victories.
After losing to Memphis on Saturday and Monday, the Mavericks are on a three-game losing run going into this meeting. Because of his thigh injury, All-Star Luka Doncic has already been declared ineligible for this game. His absence is a major setback because he leads Dallas with 33.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 8.0 assists per game.
Dallas’ other important player, point guard Kyrie Irving, is questionable with a foot injury in addition to Doncic. Irving, who averages 27.5 points and 6.6 assists per game for the Mavericks, is the team’s second-leading scorer. Due to a damaged calf, veteran Tim Hardaway Jr. is also doubtful to play, and center Christian Wood is doubtful due to a foot ailment.
Let’s check the latest picks, NBA news, stats and NBA expert picks for Mavericks vs Spurs . We’ve plenty of NBA predictions for you to consider.
San Antonio is preparing for the fourth match of a six-game homestand, which will end on Sunday against Atlanta. Last Friday, the Spurs shocked Denver by defeating them in their home opener despite being 12.5 point underdogs. They failed to capitalize on that momentum on Sunday, falling to Oklahoma City 102-90.
Ultimately, without their main playmakers, the Mavericks struggle to score due to their top-heavy lineup. Even when fully healthy, the defense is still a concern, and even though the players listed as questionable are hardly defensive stoppers, their absence increases the strain on Dallas’ already leaky defense.
