This could be a first-round preview given the LA Clippers are in second and the Dallas Mavericks are in seventh. The shift isn’t likely to come from the Mavericks who trail the Rockets by two games. Rather, the Nuggets are only a half-game back of the Clippers.
Los Angeles Clippers
Unlike the Lakers who have the benefit of knowing they have sewn up the top seed the Clippers still have work to do if they want that second seed.
After this game, the Clippers will face the Blazers, Nets, Nuggets (in a game that could determine who finishes second), and close out the seeding games versus the Thunder.
LA has missed their reserve tandem of Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams.
The former remains out dealing with a personal matter while Williams played in his first seeded game after spending 10 days in quarantine. Williams had seven points, six rebounds, and six assists.
This last game, highlighted more issues as the Clippers seemingly took the scrappy Phoenix Suns for granted or it could also be LA trying to figure out their rotations and chemistry.
Kawhi Leonard almost singlehandedly brought the Clippers back and finished with 27 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and a steal. He was doing it on both ends but Devin Booker naled a walk-off basket to give the Suns the 117-115 victory.
Paul George (23), Ivica Zubac (18), Marcus Morris (16) and Jeff Green (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
If only the Mavericks could figure out how to sustain their league-leading offense through 48 minutes they would be a team who could throw their hat in the ring as a title contender.
Too often they cough up leads and have genuine issues scoring or holding leads in those pivotal final five minutes. That’s a problem they have to fix before the postseason when games often get decided in clutch time.
In their last match versus the Kings, they were able to fight back to force overtime and breakthrough with their first seeding game win.
The wonder boy Luka Doncic was masterful, posting a 34 point, 20 rebound, 12 assist triple-double. Although Kristaps Porzingis fouled out at the end of regulation he delivered 22 points, seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals in the contest.
Tim Hardaway Jr (22) and Dorian Finney-Smith (16) were the other double-figure contributors.
Seth Curry missed the game with leg soreness and is unlikely to play in this match.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks +4
Although the Clippers depth is incredible it will be intriguing to witness who guards the 7’3″ Kristaps Porzingis.
