The Spurs are starting the second half of their regular-season schedule against a familiar foe in Luka Doncic and the Mavericks. A mixture of injuries and coronavirus protocols decimated both teams in their first meeting. But the second go-round should look dramatically different as each has regained the serves of several key contributors.
Although an abbreviated All-Star Break allowed everyone an opportunity to rest up for a few days, San Antonio will have to make the most of their brief hiatus. Dallas was on a roll before the annual midseason exhibition, and the Silver and Black will be tested as travel up I-35 for a date with the Mavericks that kicks off 40 games in 68 days.
