Wednesday, November 1 finds two Western Conference foes entering their Third week of play in the 2017-18 regular season for the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers. The Dallas Mavericks have started the new season on the wrong path as the Los Angeles Clippers have dropped two straight.
Last season, the squads played four times with both teams getting a pair of wins. The Mavericks hold the all-time record against the Clippers with a 90-59 record.
Beginning a two-game road trip, the Mavericks traveled to Salt Lake City for Monday’s matchup against the Utah Jazz. The Mavs then tried to bounce back after narrow defeats in their previous two games, attempting to atone for last Thursday’s 96-91 loss in Memphis and Saturday’s 112-110 loss to Philadelphia at home.
But despite a season-high scoring output from 13-time All-Star Dirk Nowitzki, the Mavericks (1-7) would suffer a third straight defeat after a 104-89 loss. Sticking with the first unit of rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr., swingman Wesley Matthews, versatile forward Harrison Barnes, Nowitzki and 23-year-old center Nerlens Noel, the Mavericks tried to end their string of sluggish starts.
Instead, the Mavs would again find themselves playing from behind after Utah opened the game on a 7-2 run. And after a three-pointer from Jazz forward Joe Ingles, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle was forced to burn a timeout with his team down 12-5 and 8:45 left in the opening quarter.
The Mavericks would settle down, however, after a three-pointer from reserve guard Yogi Ferrell. A three-pointer from Nowitzki would follow after the Jazz (4-3) upped its lead to eight. And behind a lift from veteran backup point guard J.J. Barea, the Mavs finished the period on a 14-2 run to take a 27-21 edge into the second stanza.
Starting the second period with a corner three-pointer from Matthews, the Mavericks kept their foot on the gas. Nowitzki slid back into the scoring from there, swishing a three of his own from the top of the key to put the Mavs up 35-23 after combo guard Devin Harris’ drive-and-kick assist. However since then it was all Utah…
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers were demolished yet again by the Warriors, getting bulldozed 141-113 at Staples Center. That makes 11 consecutive times the Clippers have lost to the defending NBA champions.
And the past five straight have not been close, all of them by double digits, the average margin of defeat now 22.8 points. The Clippers’ defense was turned every which way by the full-throttle Golden State offense, which lit the Clippers up for 58.4% shooting from the field, 48.3% from three-point range.
The Clippers yielded 34 points in first quarter, 40 in the second quarter when the Warriors broke the game open, 33 in the third when the Warriors extended their lead and 34 in the fourth when the Clippers knew another loss was at hand
Danilo Gallinari led the Clippers with 19 points. But the Warriors contained Blake Griffin by sending frequent double teams at him, making him a passer instead of a scorer. He was limited to 16 points on just 10 shots.
