The Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs meet Wednesday in NBA action at the AT&T Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 113.9 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 113.2 points on 48.6 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 33 points and 8 assists, while Kyrie Irving is averaging 27.5 points and 5.1 rebounds. Christian Wood is the third double-digit scorer and Tim Hardaway Jr. is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 37 percent from beyond the arc and 74.9 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.6 rebounds per game.

The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 112 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 122 points on 50.6 percent shooting. Keldon Johnson is averaging 21.6 points and 4.9 rebounds, while Devin Vassell is averaging 18.6 points and 3.5 assists. Devonte’ Graham is the third double-digit scorer and Tre Jones is grabbing 3.5 rebounds. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 39.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game.

The Mavericks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Spurs are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Mavericks last 4 overall. The over is 6-1 in Spurs last 7 games playing on 0 days rest. The Mavericks are 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings in San Antonio and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Dallas Mavericks are going to be without Luka, and there's a chance they could be without Kyire and Hardaway as well. Not ideal. However, the San Antonio Spurs aren't trying to win games these days, and that includes losing on the year by an average of 10 points and losing at home by an average of 7.1 points. The Spurs are trying to get ping pong balls. So, even with the Mavs possibly down 3 of their best players, I'm laying the chalk anyway.

Randy’s Pick Dallas Mavericks -5.5
