-----------------------------------

 

 

Los Angeles Clippers:

 

The Clippers won 106-81 to tie the series 2-2 in G4. In the last two victories, Leonard averaged 32.5 points, shooting  24-for-32, while George chipped in with 24.5 points per game, finding the range on his 3-pointer (5-for-12) after going just 3-for-15 in the two home games. Now, the Clippers will aim to get their consecutive third win. 

 

Dallas Mavericks:

 

Mavericks Star player Doncic continues to play with a nerve issue and shot just 9-for-24 with 19 points in G4. Mavericks will be seeking a third straight win in Los Angeles, having won 113-103 and 127-121 in its previous two visits. However, speaking of Doncic’s condition, "He's in pain," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said.

 

 

Prediction:

 

Clippers have failed to cover the number in four of the last five overall against Dallas, and I expect players like Tim Hardaway will bounce back and play better in G5.

 

Ben's Prediction: Mavericks + 6.5
