Dallas Mavericks vs LA Clippers: Prediction and Betting Tips
Dallas Mavericks hoping to find winning form at home
Luka Doncic made the headlines again as he led his team to victory in game five of one of the most bizarre series in the NBA. After a quiet game in game four due to a neck injury, Doncic hit back with style and completely dominated the Mavericks offense scoring 42 points and helping his teammates with 14 assists.
The bizarre thing in this series is that no team has won at home yet. Coach Rick Carlisle has to find the problems facing them in their home games as they have a great chance to advance to the Western Conference semi-finals if they win this match. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 points and had two free throws made in the final eight seconds which sealed the victory for the Mavericks.
LA Clippers facing elimination from round one
The Clippers have lost their last three games at home against the Mavericks. That might cost them the series as they have to win again in Dallas in game six. Despite a late surge by the Clippers in the fourth quarter, they couldn’t close the gap as the damage had already been done in the third quarter when the Mavericks outscored the home side by 12 points.
No player of the Clippers stood out as the sole scorer in the game. Paul George was their best scorer with 23 points while Jackson and Leonard both scored 20. The Clippers were well off their regular-season average in FG% of 48%. They shot 41% scoring 33 of 80 attempts from all distances.
- Three of the four quarters in the last match had total points of less than 63
- Dallas are averaging 106.8 points in the playoffs
- The Clippers are averaging 109.6 points in the playoffs
Dallas Mavericks vs Los Angeles Clippers Prediction
As we predicted in our game five preview, much depends on Luka Doncic’s health and fitness in deciding the outcome of that match. Luka was in great shape and was the key player for his team’s victory as he was in the previous two games.
Tyronn Lue can’t seem to find a solution for Doncic. If he did, his team wouldn’t be trailing 3-2 now. In game six, the Clippers need to stop the Slovenian by all means otherwise they will have the same fate as they did in the games where he was the top scorer of the game.
With all the strange things happening in this match, we will bet on the first quarter of the match and back Dallas to win it as they will make sure to have a good start.
