The Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers meet Thursday in NBA preseason action at the Rogers Arena.
The Dallas Mavericks need a victory here to finish the preseason with a 2-3 record. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 109.8 points on 40.9 percent shooting and allowing 107.8 points on 46.7 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 22.3 points and 4.7 assists while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 15.3 points and 8.3 rebounds. Jalen Brunson is the third double-digit scorer and Tim Hardaway Jr. is dishing 2.3 assists. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 31.4 percent from beyond the arc and 74.2 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 36.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.3 rebounds per game. The Dallas Mavericks have lost six of their last nine preseason games.
The Los Angeles Clippers look for a win here to finish their preseason with a 3-2 record. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 108 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 101.8 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Montrezl Harrell is averaging 16.5 points and 5.5 rebounds while Lou Williams is averaging 14 points and 3.3 assists. Rodney McGruder is the third double-digit scorer and Jerome Robinson is dishing 4.3 assists. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 28.8 percent from beyond the arc and 63.7 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 27.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.3 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have won 10 of their last 12 preseason games.
The Mavericks are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Clippers are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The Mavericks are 2-6-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in L.A. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in L.A.
The Dallas Mavericks have looked sluggish for much of the preseason and have done very little offensively where they're shooting a poor percentage across the board. The Los Angeles Clippers have had issues as well, but they're getting after it defensively and are winning games despite not knocking down the outside shot just yet. The Los Angeles Clippers are the better, deeper team and have played better up to this point. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Clippers.
