Sunday, November 21st, finds the Dallas Mavericks Spurs facing the LA Clippers in their first meeting of two successive games between these clubs,
The Mavericks are in a schedule segment that finds them playing consecutive games against the same club. They played two games in a row at Phoenix losing both and now play two against the LA. The Clippers last played Friday in a loss to the Pelicans.
Last season, the teams played three times with the Mavericks taking two of the three contests. Dallas holds the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 95 of their 162 matches.
Although the Mavericks battled the Suns they ended up losing both matches the first on Wednesday 98-105 and then Friday fell 104-112. Star Luka Doncic is sidelined with an ankle injury and while Kristaps Porzingis is playing they couldn’t hang onto win the final frame.
Porzingis led the way for Dallas with a double-double of 23 points and 12 rebounds plus two assists, two steals, and a block.
Jalen Brunson has arguably been the most consistent Maverick and delivered again with a double-double of 18 points and 10 assists plus four rebounds, and a steal.
Tim Hardaway scored 18 while Dorian Finney-Smith chipped in 12 points as the only other double-figure contributors.
Doncic has missed the last two games but the team is hopeful he’ll be available to play in this match versus the Clippers. Maxi Kleber (oblique strain) has missed the last nine games and will remain out on Sunday.
After getting out to a slow start (1-4) on the season the Clippers were rolling having won seven in a row but suddenly they’re struggling again having lost three of their last four matches including the recent game to the Pelicans who were 2-14 entering the night.
LA built up a 20-point lead but New Orleans chipped away and ended up reversing the deficit to take a 13-point lead by outscoring LA 51 to 26 in the second half.
Paul George scored 19 but shot an abysmal 8 of 26 (3 of 14 from deep) adding seven rebounds, six assists, and a steal. Nicolas Batum added 12 points while Terance Mann and Isaiah Hartenstein each scored 11 points as the only other double-figure contributors.
Batum cited a lack of ball movement and cold shooting on the loss as the Clippers shot 37.8 percent (34 of 90) from the field and 24.3 percent from the perimeter (nine of 37).
In an oddity, the teams combined to take 13 free throws total, five by the Clippers and eight by the Pelicans.
Marcus Morris Sr. (knee) has missed the last 13 games and was downgraded to out Sunday while Justise Winslow (personal) was upgraded to probable. Kawhi Leonard continues to rehab from a torn ACL.

- The teams are 5-5 in their last 10 head to head contests
