Clippers vs. Mavs Quick Preview and Game Thread

The Clippers take on the Mavs at home in what’s close to a must-win game.

NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Game Information:

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California

When: 7:30 PM PT

How to watch/listen: Fox Sports Prime Ticket, NBA TV, AM 570

Projected Starting Lineups:

Mavs: Jalen Brunson - Tim Hardaway Jr. - Luka Doncic - Dorian Finney-Smith - Maxi Kleber

Clippers: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander - Pat Beverley - Landry Shamet - Danilo Gallinari - Ivica Zubac


Mavs: JJ Barea OUT (Achilles), Kristaps Porzingis OUT (Knee)

Clippers: Luc Mbah a Moute OUT (knee), Wilson Chandler OUT (quad)

The Clippers are on the second night of a back to back, but are also returning home after a long road stretch. The Mavericks welcome the return of Luka Doncic and Maxi Kleber, their two best players, though they have no desire or need to win the rest of this season. The Clippers need this game far more, and need to play like it, or they’ll lose.
