The Los Angeles Clippers will host the Dallas Mavericks in a pivotal game two in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
Mavericks vs Clippers: Home Court Advantage
The Clippers will be seeing this game as a must-win as they head to Dallas for games three and four and will certainly not be eager to be 2-0 down in the series before they head off to play in front of the fiery Mavericks fans.
The Mavericks, on the other hand, will see this as an opportunity to give themselves a huge advantage for the rest of the series, and to spark what they hope to be a deep playoff run.
Mavericks vs Clippers: Previous Meetings
The Clippers and Mavericks have faced each other three times this season, with the Mavs winning two and the Clippers winning the other.
I don’t see Kawhi Leonard and Paul George losing the opening two games against the Mavericks and I believe they will step on the gas to fire themselves up for the rest of what promises to be an entertaining series.
My prediction: Clippers win.
