San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks prediction

It's hard to side with the Dallas Mavericks and decent sized chalk when Luka Doncic is still listed as questionable. Kyrie is still out, while Dante Exum and Dereck Lively II are questionable as well. That's a lot of banged up bodies, and the Mavs are on the end of a back to back. No, thanks. The San Antonio Spurs have been more competitive lately, and their size could give a small Mavericks team issues. Give me the Spurs and the points, but check the injury report before locking anything in for this one.
