Stats to Know
- Dallas Mavericks’ Opponent’s PPG, last five games: 89.4, Rank: 1st
- San Antonio Spurs’ PPG, last five games: 95.0, Rank: 28th
The pace change has done a lot for Dallas in stopping teams from getting into a rhythm against them. San Antonio is used to playing at a slow pace, and ranked 26th this season. This shouldn’t disrupt their play, so Dallas needs to get things going offensively in order to pick up the win.
- Dallas Mavericks’ 3-point attempts, last five games: 33.2, Rank: 2nd
- San Antonio Spurs’ Opponent’s 3-point attempts, last five games: 21.8, Rank: 8th
The Mavericks have been shooting a lot from behind the arc, in their recent run. They haven’t been making that many, but it has not deterred them from taking the shots. The Spurs however have allowed a lot fewer attempts in the same span. Overall this season they have held opponents to the 2nd worst percentage from 3-point. Will the Mavs continue to take the long distance shots?
