Mavericks: 5 things that must happen to finish the upset of the Clippers
By Tyler Watts
Dallas Mavericks need Luka Doncic to go off to eliminate the Clippers
Luka will be locked in and ready on Friday night as Dallas looks to close out the series. The 22-year-old superstar must be at the top of his game for the Mavericks to win.
He has been the best player on the court through the first five games. It will take one more otherworldly effort to lift Dallas into the second round for the first time since winning the championship in 2011.
Luka has struggled in the fourth quarter during this series. He is just six of 27 from the field and has scored just 17 points in the final period through five games. The Mavericks need to get out to an early lead and maintain it down the stretch. Doncic has been impossible to stop in the first three periods, but he has worn down late. Keep an eye on that trend on June 4.
Game 6 will be massive. Expect another incredible performance from Luka Doncic as he attempts to lift the Dallas Mavericks into the second round. The LA Clippers will pack their best punch on Friday night. Fans will not want to miss a second of the action, so please tune in and enjoy.
