Dallas Mavericks vs LA Clippers Live Stream & Tips


The Dallas Mavericks and the LA Clippers clash for the fifth time in their NBA Playoff First Round series on Wednesday, June 2. With results all square at 2-2, this game might well prove pivotal, as the victor will be just one win away from progressing to the next round. 

The LA Clippers were 4-6 in their final 10 games of the regular season, hardly the best form to take into a playoff series. It was therefore no great surprise when they went 0-2 down in games against the Dallas Mavericks - a terrible start for a team that a month earlier had been one of the favorites to win the championships. 

At that point, many experts were ready to write the Clippers off, but instead they have staged a remarkable comeback, winning the next two games to level the series. On Monday they completed their comeback by defeating Dallas 106-81, an impressive 25-point margin of victory. 

Now that they are playing with the gusto they displayed for much of the regular-season, I’m backing the LA Clippers to take the lead in this series with another convincing victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday.

  • Clippers finished 4th in Western Conference 
  • Clippers 47-25 this season 
  • Mavericks finished 5th in Western Conference
  • Mavericks 42-30 this season

Head to Head


The Dallas Mavericks and the LA Clippers have played each other a total of 162 times in regular season games, with Dallas currently leading their head-to-head by 95 wins to 67. These two teams have played each other 10 times over the past three seasons, with LA leading 6-4. The Clippers and the Mavericks have met three times this season, with Dallas having a 2-1 edge, winning their final regular season game 105-89 in March. In their first playoff match, the Mavericks were victorious 113-103. 

During the 2021 NBA Playoffs first round, the Dallas Mavericks and the LA Clippers are tied at two wins each. Dallas refers to won the first two matches, but the Clippers regained their form and have since won the next two games to level this series.

Dallas Mavericks Form


Although they lost their final regular season game to the lowly ranked Minnesota Timberwolves, the Dallas Mavericks had been in excellent form in the lead up to the NBA Playoffs, and had gone 12-3 in their previous 15 matches. The Mavericks carried that great form into their first round series against the LA Clippers, and promptly won their opening match 113-103, then took a 2-0 lead with a much closer 127-121 victory in the second game. 

At that point, the Clippers were struggling to contain the Mavericks’ powerhouse forward Luka Doncic, but in game three they changed tactics and focused more on their own game and scoring points. Even though Doncic himself scored 44 points, the Clippers won the game 118-108. On Monday, the Clippers proved that result was no fluke, defeating Dallas by a 25-point margin 106-81. Suddenly momentum has switched from Dallas to LA, and the Mavericks are now in danger of losing their grasp on the series.

LA Clippers Form


These are the third straight playoffs the LA Clippers have contested, and somewhat ironically, last year they also played the Dallas Mavericks in the first round, on that occasion going through 4-2. Last season the Clippers finished second in the Western Conference behind city rivals Los Angeles Lakers, who would go all the way and win the NBA Championships. The Clippers themselves would lose in the next round to the Memphis Grizzlies 4-3.

While the Clippers were less consistent this season, they did show flashes of superb form, and put together winning streaks of six games or more several times. However, leading up to the playoffs, they had gone off the boil somewhat, losing six of their last 10 matches. Faced with the daunting task of dealing with the Dallas Mavericks’ Slovenian sensation Luka Doncic, the Clippers lost the first two games of the series. However, showing a team spirit some doubted they had, the Clippers have since leveled the series 2-2, winning the fourth game impressively 106-81.

Verdict

The Dallas Mavericks 22-year-old Slovenian sensation Luka Doncic is many experts pick for the NBA’s Player of the Season for 2021. In the first three games of the series, the 6’7” 235 lb Doncic look sensational as he powered his team to a 2-0 lead, and even when the Clippers won the third game, Doncic hit 44 points.

He was less impressive on Monday however, and the Clippers limited him to just 19 points as they won convincingly by 106-81 - a 25-point winning margin. Top points scorer (33 PPG) Kawhi Leonard might not be making the headlines that Luka Doncic has, but he has been superb for the Clippers this season.

I’m backing Leonard and his LA Clippers to defeat the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday in commanding fashion, winning by at least 10 points in a matchup that will feature around 215 points or less.
