The NBA brings more action today as the Los Angeles Clippers will clash with the Dallas Mavericks in the Dallas, Texas. The Clippers beat the Spurs in their last game with a score of 103-95. And the Mavericks lost their last game which was against the Bucks 116-106.
Los Angeles Clippers Form
The Clippers are heading into this game after a solid win against the Spurs with a score of 103-95. However, they have been on the downfall as they lost their previous five games in a row.
The Clippers are placed on the final playoff spot in the Western Conference by a half-game over the Lakers.
Tobias Harris was the main man in their last win against the Spurs. He led the team with 27 points in the game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Clippers score an average of 114.5 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the high 5th spot in the league in scoring. Moreover, they have an average of 45.5 boards per game combined with 22.8 dimes per night.
On the defensive side of the game, the Clippers concede an average of 114.2 points per game. Therefore, this record is good enough for the low 24th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Dallas Mavericks Form
The Mavericks are heading into this game after a defeat in the Brew City by the Bucks. However, this loss was expected as Milwaukee is one of the best offensive team in the league.
And although this result was a no surprise, their recent form has been poor. Dallas has lost their last 4 games in a row. Therefore, they have dropped 5 games behind the Clippers for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
On the offensive side of the game, the Mavericks score an average of 109.6 points per game. Therefore, this record is good enough for the 20th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46 boards per game combined with 22.5 dimes per night.
On the defensive side of the game, Dallas concedes an average of 109.6 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 20th spot in the league in scoring.
Luka Doncic is their main man as he currently leads the team with 20 points plus 6.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game this season.
The Clippers won their last game and broke the bad run of 5 defeats in a row. Therefore, they need to keep winning in order to keep the playoff position.
However, on the other side, the Mavericks are not playing well. Therefore, they might be easy prey for the Clippers. Dallas has 7 defeats in their last 9 games. Therefore, I don’t expect too much from them in this game.
Go for the Clippers in this one.
