The Dallas Mavericks will face the 2nd seeded Los Angeles Clippers in a western conference blockbuster game. Check out the preview for the game and where you can watch it.
The Clippers will be looking to redeem themselves after their loss to the Phoenix Suns in their previous encounter. Devin Booker carried the Suns offensively and was able to put the dagger in the last play, shooting over PG and Kawhi.
Clippers have not looked incredible since the restart in the bubble. They lost a very closely-competed opening night game against their fiercest rivals, the Los Angeles Lakers. Doc Rivers will be looking to put these loses behind him. However, the team will have to perform much better than their game against the Suns, if they have a chance to beat the Mavericks.
The Mavericks are of the most potent offensive teams in the NBA 2020 restart. However, their defence isn’t great. Kawhi Lenord and Paul George should look to use the Mavericks’ weakness against them.
The Mavs would be working on their defensive strategies or would want to outscore the Clippers in an all out offensive display.

How are the teams lined up?
Injuries have cost both teams quite a few players. Lou Williams, who finally played his first game, did not look too impressive. He struggled a bit and ended the game with 7 points, 6 assist and 3-on-8 shooting in 21 minutes. Letting Booker get on the offensive cost the Clippers their previous game. Will they be able to contain Doncic and Porzingis and come out ahead?
Seth Curry could potentially be out for the Mavericks which could affect their bench and depth. However, the Mavs won their previous encounter against the Kings. They will be keen to put up a similarly impressive performance against the Clippers.
Expect an offensive bout tonight between these two teams, with Kawhi, PG, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis leading the way.
LA Clippers (predicted lineup): Patrick Beverley, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris, Ivica Zubac
Dallas Mavericks (predicted lineup): J.J. Barea, Luka Doncic, Tim Hardaway Jr., Dorian Finney-Smith, Kristaps Porzingis
