The Mavericks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 7-2 in Mavericks last 9 overall. The under is 14-5-1 in Clippers last 20 overall. The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Los Angeles Clippers are playing better basketball obviously and appear to have their confidence back with the series evened up. However, a lot of that success has come when Luka is either on the bench or when he's been dealing with an injury. When Luka is on the court healthy, the Mavs have badly outplayed the Clippers. Reports indicate Luka is feeling better and his around the clock treatment should produce a better version of himself. If that's the case, I like the Mavericks and the points.
