Thursday, February 10th finds the LA Clippers and Dallas Mavericks playing for the third time this season. The Clippers won 97-91 on November 21st while the Mavericks won 112-104 on November 23rd and will host the final game in the season series on February 12th.
Both teams last played on Tuesday with the Clippers losing 109-135 to the Grizzlies while the Mavericks defeated the Pistons 116-86.
Last season, the squads played three times with Dallas winning two of the three contests. The Mavericks hold the advantage all-time having won 96 times of the club’s 164 meetings.
One of the teams who kick started their trade action early was the Clippers who added Norman Powell and Robert Covington. Though the duo had great debuts LA lost both games they’ve played in.
That sort of highlights this deal wasn’t made necessarily for this season, but more for the future when Powell will be a factor playing with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
There has been ample speculation the Clippers aren’t done making deals and other moves are coming on Thursday. Luke Kennard is a player often rumored to be available and the potential to move Serge Ibaka who is in a contract year is also a possibility.
In the loss to the Grizzlies things got nasty when Marcus Morris caught Ja Morant in the face as he went up for a dunk that caused him to fall awkwardly. Morris was ejected via a flagrant two foul and knew it was coming as soon as he fouled Morant.
Isaiah Hartenstein scored 19 to lead the way for LA while Powell moved to the starting rotation scoring 16 points and Covington continued to be more productive with his new team scoring 14.
Terance Mann (14), Amir Coffey (13), and Reggie Jackson (12) were the other double-figure contributors.
Jay Scrubb (toe) is questionable for Thursday. Jason Preston (foot), Paul George (elbow), and Kawhi Leonard (knee) are out indefinitely.
The win streak is now three games in a row with the Mavericks 10-4 in their last 14 matches and two of those losses occurring against lottery teams on consecutive nights.
That’s why I predicted Dallas was feast against the Pistons to not allow another lower-tier team win simply because they took them for granted.
Luka Doncic produced a double-double of 33 points (in 33 minutes) and 11 assists with seven rebounds, a steal, and two blocks. All five starters scored in double figures plus reserve Trey Burke (18 points).
Jalen Brunson offered 21 points with four assists adding to his season portfolio and speculation he could be on the move at the deadline if the Mavs aren’t willing to pay him this offseason.
Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and Sterling Brown (foot) are questionable for Thursday. Tim Hardaway Jr. underwent surgery to repair a foot fracture and will be out indefinitely.

Free LA Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
All indications are the Clippers aren’t done making moves so they could arrive to this game with a smaller roster following trades at the deadline and awaiting the arrival of new players.
Dallas is desirous of adding another playmaker and wing scorer so they could also be active at the deadline but they’ll have the best player on the court in Luka Doncic who is finally in game shape.
