The Dallas Mavericks are looking to get back on track against the LA Clippers on Tuesday night. Luka Doncic and company have lost two of their last three games, including the last time out in Oklahoma City without Luka. This is game two in a five-game road trip, and the Mavs are just 7-12 away from the American Airlines Center this season.

The Clippers have lost six consecutive games, and they are just 21-21 to begin the season. Kawhi Leonard has played in just 18 games, and Paul George is out with a hamstring injury. LA has plenty of depth, but can they figure out how to play together?

Luka always has a bit of extra juice against the Clippers after they knocked the Mavericks out of the playoffs two straight years. What will Doncic do on Tuesday night? Here is a look at the odds, how to watch, and more on the Dec. 10 showdown in LA.
