The Dallas Mavericks will look to continue their climb up the Western Conference standings and take advantage of a rare break from the rigors of the COVID-influenced NBA schedule when they host the reeling San Antonio Spurs on Sunday evening. The Mavericks have won six of their past seven games to move into the seventh spot in the West. Dallas' most recent game was a 116-101 home win over short-handed Milwaukee on Thursday that came a night after the Mavs lost at Houston.
So Finney-Smith and Kleber are shooting well from three. That’s exactly what the Mavericks need, right? Maybe not.
Despite a 10-point lead after the first quarter, a 31-point advantage by the Clippers in the second quarter leads to Houston's 126-109 loss.
