The Dallas Mavericks are 7-4 entering Friday’s game on the road, and they have taken care of business against the rival San Antonio Spurs so far this season. This will be the third matchup in the first 12 games, including the second in San Antonio.
Superstar Luka Doncic deferred to Jalen Brunson down the stretch in the team’s win on Nov. 3. Brunson was attacking Doug McDermott repeatedly as he finished with 31 points the last time the Mavericks were in San Antonio.
Can Dallas make it three straight against the Spurs? Here is a look at the odds, how to watch, and a prediction for the Nov. 12 contest.

Dallas Mavericks at San Antonio Spurs: Injury report
According to the NBA’s official injury report, the Mavs will be without Maxi Kleber (oblique), Eugene Omoruyi (G League), and JaQuori McLaughlin (G League) on Friday night in San Antonio.
The Spurs ruled out Jakob Poeltl (health and safety), Jock Landale (health and safety), and Zach Collins (ankle) from facing the Mavericks. They also have Josh Primo, Devontae Cook, and Joe Wieskamp on assignment with their G League affiliate. No Poeltl means San Antonio will be playing small on Nov. 12.
The injury report can change quickly, so be sure to check Twitter just before tipoff for any late-breaking news.

Dallas Mavericks at San Antonio Spurs prediction
The Mavs have done well in taking care of business against the projected lottery team so far this season, but defeating any NBA team three straight times in a just over two-week span is difficult.
Luka Doncic was frustrated by his play against the Bulls in the Mavericks' last game, so expect the 22-year-old superstar to take it out on the Spurs. He will be looking for his first triple-double of the season, and his third 30-point game.
The Dallas Mavericks win a razor-thin decision over the San Antonio Spurs on Nov. 12 but still manage to cover the two-point spread. Both Dallas and the game go under their point totals in a contest that features plenty of drama. Fans won’t want to miss it, so please tune in and enjoy.
