In this all-Western showdown between two teams sitting in and out of the top-8 of the conference, the Los Angeles Clippers (33-28), looking to bounce back after their latest defeat, are hosting the Dallas Mavericks (26-33), who are struggling and have won only once in their last 6 games.
Date/Time: 02-25-2019, 22:30 EDT
Spread: Los Angeles Clippers -5.5
Los Angeles Clippers have a 33-28 record (33-28 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with two more teams in the 6th place of the West. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Nuggets with a 96-123 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Lou Williams with 19.9 ppg and a team high 5.3 dimes per game off the bench. He is followed by Danilo Gallinari with 18.8 ppg and 6 boards per game.
Dallas Mavericks have a 26-33 record (34-24-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 12th place of the West. They have lost five of their last six matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Jazz with a 109-125 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Luka Doncic with 20.7 ppg, adding 7.2 boards and 5.6 dimes per game. He is followed by Tim Hardaway Jr. with 16 ppg and 3 boards per game.
In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Mavericks lead the Clippers 2-1 wins with each team having won at home. Clippers have a 16-12 home record, while the Mavericks are 6-23 on the road. Clippers are better offensively, scoring 113.9 ppg to Mavs’ 108.6, while Mavericks are better defensively, allowing 109.1 ppg to Clippers’ 113.8. Clippers have better percentages both in field goals (47% to 44.7%) and in 3-pointers (38.3% to 34.4%). Both teams are very close both in turnovers committed (14.2 to 14.5) and in boards grabbed (45.4 to 45.1), while Clippers are better in dimes made (23.2 to 22.6). Clippers are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -5.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home win tonight.
