Clippers vs Mavericks Game 1 Live Stream, Watch Online, TV Channel, Odds, Start Time, Prediction
The Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks met in the first round of the playoffs last season, and they will do the same this season. The Clippers won the series last year 4-2, so they will look for a repeat performance while the Mavs will aim for another result. Both teams have made a few changes since then, but the two still largely have the same core. For what it’s worth, the Mavericks have won two of three games between the teams in the regular season. That said, here’s everything you need to know for Game 1 of the series.

Featured Game | Los Angeles Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks
Lawn mowers: The Clippers enter the playoffs as legitimate title contenders for the second straight season, although this time around they appear to be a bit more complete team. On paper, they match up well with the Mavericks, as much of what the Mavs do relies on Doncic, and the Clippers have two elite perimeter defenders to deploy against him in Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. They’re also a great 3-point shooter and they have a lot of playoff experience. They have all the tools to do a deep title run and they should be able to handle business against Dallas.
Mavericks: The Mavericks will have their hands full against the Clippers, who are a deeper and more experienced team. Kristaps Porzingis will be a big x factor for Dallas. If he’s able to stay healthy, stay out of trouble and play to his potential, he could help Dallas make the series competitive. Otherwise, it could be over quickly.
