Two teams who started the season off with a win get set for a 2nd leg of a back-to-back when the Mavericks and Clippers get set to battle Thursday night.
Dallas went into Phoenix last night and used a giant 3rd quarter to run away with a 111-95 win.
As for the Clippers, they nearly blew an 11 point lead, but with some late free throws managed to hold on to beat the Kings 111-104.
The lock bet for tonight? Easy, that Mark Cuban will make sure he is in attendance tonight. After Cuban met with DeAndre Jordan and the two verbally agreed on a contract, Jordan backed out at the very last second leaving Cuban confused and helpless this past off season.
However, the Mavericks have moved on and showed that with their opening night win over the Suns Wednesday night. Dallas’ Zaza Pachulia, who was essentially signed in place of Jordan, finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds in his Mavs debut.
G Deron Williams left in the 3rd quarter in his Mavs debut with a knee injury, but still managed a solid debut prior to leaving. Williams finished with 12 points and 7 assists and finished with 20 minutes on the stat sheet. His status for Thursday in listed as questionable.
PG Raymond Felton will look for his 2nd straight solid performance as he tallied 18 points and 6 dimes in his Mavericks debut.
DeAndre Jordan can expect the Mavs players to go hard at him all night long as they look for a bit of revenge for him burning them this past off season.
Still, the Clippers come in on a high note after spoiling the Kings home opener as they lead for a a majority of the game en route to a 7 point win. F DeAndre Jordan finished with 8 points, 12 rebounds, and had 4 blocks in his season debut.
F Blake Griffin propelled the Clippers with 33 points on 14 of 20 shooting and grabbed 8 rebounds. With Jordan sticking around, Griffin has a lot of the pressure taken off of him on both sides of the ball.
PG Chris Paul also had a solid season debut as he finished with 18 points and 11 assists. Paul looks to follow up a season that saw him record 40 double-doubles. It was the 3rd time in his career he had 40+ double-doubles.
