The Mavericks are going nowhere fast this season and tonight visit the L.A. Clippers. Blake Griffin and the Clips are coming off getting blown out at home by the Warriors, so you can bet they have retribution on their minds.

Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Clippers

The Mavericks have one win on the season and tonight it’s going to be very hard, and virtually impossible, for them to get a second. The new-look Clippers are extremely talented, and after getting embarrassed at home twice over their last two games they are going to be fired up to get a victory here.

The question is: How fired up? Will they be fired up enough to come out and punch this team in the mouth and get a early lead, or will they let the Mavs stay in the game just long enough to ruin any tickets on the Clippers -9½?

I think they will be. The Clippers’ defense has actually been pretty good this season, and even after allowing 141 points to the Warriors two nights ago, the Clippers are allowing just 102.9 points per 100 possessions. You can bet that Dallas won’t get anywhere near 100 points if LA is locked in on both ends. The Mavs have covered just one game on the road this season in a home-and-home against the Grizzlies, but tonight against a much more talented team the Clippers should take this one ATS.
