The Dallas Mavericks face the rival LA Clippers for the first time this season on Tuesday night. Superstar Luka Doncic is fresh off a 42-point triple-double in a win over the Blazers, and the Mavs are 6-1 at home heading into the contest.
The Clippers are on the second night of a back-to-back after dominating the Rockets on Monday night in Houston. Paul George led the way with 22 points, but LA used a balanced attack to run away with the contest. They moved to 5-2 on the road this season, and the Clippers have won six of their last eight games.
Luka is always hyped to face the Clippers, so what should fans expect on Nov. 15? Will Doncic go off for another massive triple-double? Here is a look at how to watch, the odds, and more on Tuesday’s contest at the American Airlines Center.
