Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Clippers Prediction

Los Angeles earned the number four seed with a record of 51-31.

It was a sluggish start to the season for the Clippers, but this team began to click as the year went on.

Los Angeles will have to play tonight without their star in, Kawahi Leonard.

Leonard leads the Clippers with 23.7 points per game.

Paul George will need to step up in a big way. George has averaged 22.6 points per game and 5.2 rebounds.

James Harden has added 16.6 points per game and a team-best 8.5 assists.

The Clippers offense has averaged 115.6 points per game.

Dallas rolls into this contest with a record of 50-32.

It has been a successful season thus far for the Mavs.

The trouble for them has come in the postseason.

From a talent standpoint, this team can compete in any game with outstanding guard play.

Luka Doncic leads the Mavs with 33.9 points, 9.2 rebounds and 9.8 assists. Doncic will be an MVP finalist.

Kyrie Irving has produced at a high level this year, adding 25.6 points and 5.0 assists.

Tim Hardaway Jr. has averaged 14.4 points and 3.4 rebounds off the Dallas bench. The veteran will be in the running to win sixth man of the year.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Clippers Pick

I will gladly take the points with the home dog today.

A lot of people are writing the Clippers off in this game because of the absence of Leonard.

Los Angeles is one of the deepest rosters in the NBA and has multiple players who can step up in this game.

Dogs will be barking today, and it will start with a Clippers cover in a close game.
