Why the Clippers can cover
A slow end to the regular season and a start of 0-2 in 2021 at the NBA Playoffs certainly raised questions about Los Angeles. But the Clippers still have an impressive figure. They finished 10th in the NBA regular season with 114 points in each game. They were also strong in defence and only had 109.1 points per game, sixth in the league. Both Leonard and George are well experienced in the post-season and should be motivated to keep this series out.
This year, Los Angeles was often above its expectations from the perspective of betting trends. The Clippers were on the road with 39-34-1 and 18-17-1 ATS.
Why the Mavericks can cover
Nevertheless, the Mavericks seem to have been kicked by an effective offence in each of the first two games which has saw them shoot 50 percent or better. Doncic was the catalyst for a balanced attack by playing Mavericks by providing his teammates with opportunities and also by assuming control if necessary.
Doncic has scored 39 points in Game 2 victory, including seven assists and seven rebounds. His teammates seized their leader again in open shots. During 6-of-8 from the 3-point range, veteran Tim Hardaway Jr. was 28-point and five assists. Forward Kristaps Porzingis rebuked from a tricky 1 wit Game
