The San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks will both be trying to pick up a win on Tuesday when they battle at American Airlines Center.

ABOUT THE SPURS (19-8): Power forward LaMarcus Aldridge has been in a go-to scoring role similar to his tenure in Portland with Leonard sidelined and is averaging 22.7 points, much better than last season’s 17.3 mark. Aldridge’s scoring may not take a hit in the short term while Leonard finds his stride and gets his game conditioning in order but will likely drop eventually. “There will probably be an adjustment phase in some way, shape or form,” Popovich told reporters. “We’re going to add somebody who is going to have the ball a lot, and he’s pretty good. They’ll all have to adjust.”

ABOUT THE MAVERICKS (7-20): Rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr. (hip) will miss his third consecutive game and coach Rick Carlisle said the team will be cautious with the emerging star. “He played with a pretty significant ankle injury last year, but this is all about getting a diagnosis from the doc and finding out exactly what it is and making sure he’s 100 percent,” Carlisle told reporters. “It does no good to bring him back at 85 or 90 percent if there’s a chance he could re-injure it based on the fact that we didn’t bring him back at 100 percent.” Smith, the ninth overall pick in the 2017 draft, has been an instant hit by averaging 14.4 points, four rebounds and four assists per game.

Oddsmakers opened the Spurs as -6½-point favorites versus the Mavericks, while the game’s total opened at 197.

All-Star small forward Kawhi Leonard is expected to make his season debut when the San Antonio Spurs visit the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday. Leonard, who was listed as probable after participating in Monday’s practice, missed the first 27 games of the season due to a quadriceps injury.

San Antonio is playing well without the two-time NBA Defensive of the Year by winning eight of its past nine games. But coach Gregg Popovich and the players have been eagerly awaiting the return of Leonard, who averaged a career-best 25.5 points last season while supplying his usual lockdown defense. “We can be proud of the work we’ve done so far,” center Pau Gasol told reporters after Monday’s practice. “Now it’s about Kawhi coming back and incorporating him and adjusting to that and being just as good or better.” Dallas is back home after a winless three-game road trip, an excursion that ended with Sunday’s 97-92 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Mavericks were a 97-92 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Timberwolves. They covered the +8-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (189) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Last time out for San Antonio, they were a 104-101 winner as they battled the Suns on the road. The Spurs failed to cover in the match as a -5-point favorite, while 205 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
