Los Angeles Clippers Form & Team News


Los Angeles know they must win their final two games to advance in the postseason.

The Clippers made a nightmare start with back-to-back home defeats, 113-103 and 127-121.

They turned it around in Dallas though as Kawhi Leonard and Paul Georg combined for 65 points and 15 rebounds in a 118-108 win.

LA then levelled the series as Kawhi Leonard produced a double double (29 points and 10 rebounds) in a 106-81 blowout.

That momentum stalled in Game 5 though as they were once again unbeaten at home.

Luka Doncic ran riot at the Staples Center but a fourth-quarter surge from LA almost rescued them.

Paul George put up 23 points and both Kawhi Leonard and Reggie Jackson added 20 but it was not enough to prevent a 105-100 defeat.

Dallas Mavericks Form & Team News


Dallas are one win away from advancing after making it a hat-trick of wins in Los Angeles.

Luka Doncic’s triple-double (31 points, 10 rebounds & 11 assists) inspired the Mavericks to a 113-103 win in LA in Game 1.

He then blitzed the Clippers for 39 points, with Tim Hardaway adding 28, as Dallas sealed a 127-121 Game 2 win that put them in control.

Doncic was proving unstoppable but a 44-point, 9-rebound display in Game 3 could not prevent a 118-109 defeat for Dallas.

The Mavs’ reliance on Doncic then cost them dear as he was held to 19 points in a 106-81 loss.

Dallas rebounded though in Game 5 and it was their star man who once again made it a one-man show.

Doncic, despite a neck problem, torched the Clippers for 42 points, 14 assists and 8 rebounds as only one other Dallas player reached double figures in points.

It was breath-taking stuff but could the Mavericks be too reliant on him?

Doncic appears to have overcome his neck problem and will play in Game 6, but JJ Redick (heel) is out.

Verdict

Luka Doncic has put LA to the sword several times now but he continues to get very little help.

If the Clippers can slow him down even slightly they can take the series back to LA for Game 7.
