Believe it or not but the Clippers have looked a better team without Kawhi this Play-Off run and he is again listed out for this game. The chemistry between James Harden and Paul George is firing and the role players are doing their jobs, especially Ivica Zubac who is shooting at 52.7% from the floor in this series. 

Luka Doncic is struggling with a niggling injury but his domination with the ball has not slowed down. If he is on the court the Mavs are always a chance but in this game the Clippers structure should win out.

  • LA are the 6th best 3pt team in the NBA shooting at 38.3% on the season
  • Dallas defend the perimeter shot at a below average rate, allowing their opponents to shoot at 37.1% 
  • The Clippers are a great 1st quarter defensive team, ranking 4th in the league
  • 8 of the last 10 games have gone Under the Game Total with the trend set to revert to the middle

Dallas Mavericks Form


The Mavs came back from a 31 point deficit in Game 4 at home but could not finish the job as the Clippers ran out winners on the road. There are two ways to look at the comeback, the first is that it takes an amazing amount of effort and confidence to mount that type of fight. The second is that they let their opponent get out to a 31 point lead in only two quarters of Play-Off basketball. 

There is no guarantee that the Clippers will be so inviting again in future games so if Dallas want to sure up their chances at winning they will need to start games with the same gusto as they have been finishing them.

Dallas Mavericks Team News


Luka Doncic is listed as probable with a knee sprain. Tim Hardaway Jr is still out following an ankle sprain earlier in the series. 

LA Clippers Form


LA grabbed a road win against the flow of the series, it now stands at 2-2 and with the Clippers returning to Crypto, the ball is in their court - quite literally.

In the games the Clippers have lost in this series they have shot below 35% from three, the two wins 50% or over. Shooting is the key to being able to match it with Dallas’ attacking power and the Clippers are a good shooting team. 

They let Dallas back into the game both in Game 4 and in Game 1, if they are any hope of making it past the first round they will need to be switched on for the whole 48 minutes. 

LA Clippers Team News


Kawhi Leonard is still out for the Clippers.
