Los Angeles Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks Odds For Game 3
Are the Clippers already dead? Well, not quite, but it’s not looking good for Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and the rest of the team. Las year, these two teams met in the first round of the Playoffs and the Clippers ended up bouncing the Mavs. This year, Luka Doncic looks more prepared to deal with the Clippers and it’s led to 2-0 Mavericks advantage after two games.
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks Moneyline Odds
Los Angeles Clippers -174
Dallas Mavericks +155
Does anyone really think this is going to get better for the Clippers as the series moves to Dallas for the next two games? Game 1 was a 10-point win for Luka Doncic and the Mavericks, followed by a six-point victory in Game 2. Doncic was good in Game 1, but close to unstoppable in Game 2. If he plays at that level, there isn’t a single player in the NBA that can guard him. Either way. The Clippers look to be in over their head right now. Still, oddsmakers have made them the favorite for Game 3.

Los Angeles Clippers Preview
Two years ago, Kawhi Leonard carried a Toronto Raptors team to a title in one of the best postseason performances we’ve ever seen. Kawhi is still carrying his team in LA, but not as successfully. Leonard is averaging 33.5 points per game in the postseason and it still hasn’t been enough to offset the performance from Luka Doncic and, to an extent, Tim Hardaway Jr.
If the Clippers are going to come back in this series, they’re going to need Leonard to step up on defense and deliver a few shutdown performances against Doncic.
Dallas Mavericks Preview
This was always going to be a tough 4 vs.5 series for the No. 4 Clippers, but I’m not sure they expected to be down two this early. What’s perhaps even more shocking is that the Clippers are still favored in Game 3, despite their poor play.
I thought we’d see Doncic and Prozingis trying to keep up with Leonard and Paul. Instead, Kawhi and PG are desperately trying to match the output from Luka, KP and the rest of Dallas. It’s almost insane to think that Dallas can shoot 54.2% from the line and still win the game, but that’s what happens when you hit just under 53% of your shots from beyond the arc.
