NBA Odds: Clippers vs. Mavericks
|Time | Channel||9 p.m. ET | ESPN|
Friday’s Game 6 in Dallas will be Luka Doncic and Co.’s chance to knock the Kawhi Leonard-led Clippers out of the NBA postseason.
Doncic has been widely accepted as a young superstar in the NBA, but his Game 5 masterpiece clearly put him in the same upper echelon as players like LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
The Clippers’ defense has been lackluster against the Mavericks. The biggest issue, of course, has been the fact that Los Angeles head coach Tyronn Lue hasn’t been able to rely on any player to slow down Luka.
Leonard took on that responsibility for a big portion of Game 5 and Doncic still churned out a remarkable 37 field goal attempts on the night.
Doncic hasn’t been beating the Clippers consistently off the dribble — he’s been using screens to get into the teeth of the defense and convert on floaters.
When Doncic doesn’t explore getting to the rim, he utilizes his killer step-back to abuse L.A.’s plodding big men.
Lue has utilized a few swift changes, like going with a small lineup more often and using his two-way stars on Doncic. Despite the strategic shift, Dallas still took home the win in Game 5.
The Clippers are reeling, but what does that mean for tonight’s Game 6?
Are the Mavericks now overvalued and ripe for fading? Or is Dallas too good to pass up as a 3-point home underdog?
According to the sharpest NBA bettors, that answer is clear.
