The Clippers and Mavericks will meet in game one of the Western Conference quarterfinals in the final slated game on Monday night.
The Mavericks went 43-32 during the regular season, while the Clippers 49-23 went during the regular season. The Clippers won all three games against the Mavericks during the regular season. Both teams are in the top 5 offenses in the league averaging over 115 PPG.
Dallas is a very dangerous seven seed considering their star power is led by Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. They do have the potential to pull the upset here if their role players can get it going.
Luka Doncic had a breakout season after being named rookie of the year in 2019. He has established himself as one of the best players in the league. The 21-year old product finished the season with an average of 28.8 PPG which ranked sixth in the NBA along with 9.4 RPG. Doncic has performed very well against Los Angeles this season, pouring on an average of 29 PPG when facing the Clips.
Dallas is averaging 117 points per game, ranking them third overall in points scored per game. They concede an average of 112.1 points, ranking them 16th in the NBA at points allowed.
Dallas has no one listed on the injury report going into Monday’s game.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers were considered the second favorites behind the Lakers as soon as Kawhi Leonard signed via free agency last summer. They can finally start their journey for their first title in franchise history and it begins tonight against Dallas.
All eyes will be on Kawhi Leonard after he led the Raptors to a championship in 2019. The 29-year old had another amazing season, averaging 27.1 PPG to go along with 7.1 RPG and 4.9 APG.
Paul George has also been great averaging 21.5 PPG and shooting above 40% from beyond the arc.
The Clippers are averaging116.5 points this season, which is good for fourth in the NBA. They allow an average of 110 points per game, ranking them 13th overall.
Patrick Beverly and Landry Shamet are “?” for this game while Montrezel Harrel will be probable against the Mavericks.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
I think the Mavericks may have a real potential to pull the upset here. Paul George has never made it out of the first round in his career and I think that honestly has hindered him every single time he plays in the playoffs. Also, Luka is a beast and could potentially take the game over by himself. I like the Mavs to keep it close here, but the Clippers will get the win.
