The Dallas Mavericks host the rival LA Clippers for two straight games starting on Feb. 10. The teams split a set in Los Angeles back in November, and the Clipper have topped Dallas two straight years in the first round of the playoffs. Superstar Luka Doncic wants nothing more than to dominate LA at the American Airlines Center on Thursday night.
The Clippers have lost two straight and three of their last four and are without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. That did not stop LA from bringing in Norman Powell and continuing to push for a place in the play-in tournament. Expect the Clippers to bring their A-game at the American Airlines Center in what should be an exciting contest.
Fans won’t want to miss it, so here is a look at how to watch, the odds, and more as the Mavs host the Clippers.
