NBA Playoffs -- Los Angeles Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks Game 7 Pick and Prediction

 

The Dallas Mavericks and LA Clippers will square off for the final time this season at Staples Center on Sunday to determine who will face the Utah Jazz in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals in the 2021 NBA playoffs.

 

The two teams have gone back and forth throughout the entire series and have claimed three wins each. Interestingly, neither side has won a game at home so far. The LA Clippers will be eager to end that streak concerning this series, while the Dallas Mavericks will look to make sure it stays that way.

 

 

NBA Playoffs -- Los Angeles Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks Game 7 Pick and Prediction

 

Los Angeles Clippers

The LA Clippers have had a very inconsistent start to their post-season. They were the favorites to win this series but have consistently underperformed despite having a superior roster in terms of talent compared to the Dallas Mavericks. The Clippers played great defensively in the last game down the stretch and will be hoping they can replicate that performance in Game 7 on Sunday. They will need to rediscover their regular-season three-point shooting form as a poor outing in that aspect could hurt the team. They shot just 10-of-34 from deep on Friday in Dallas. As a team, the Clippers shot 46 percent from the field and 10 of 34 from the 3-point line as they relied heavily on the hot hand of Leonard who barely missed a shot all night, while keeping the Mavericks’ role players in check.

Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have been phenomenal this series and, against all odds, have managed to take it till Game 7. On Friday, Dallas was outscored by 11 points during the fourth quarter of a 104-97 home loss versus LA. As a team, the Mavericks shot just 41 percent from the field and 11 of 34 from the 3-point line as they struggled to score against a stingy Clippers defense and managed just 20 points in the fourth quarter after rallying back from a 10-point deficit in the third quarter. Each of the three wins that the Dallas Mavericks were able to claim were because of their all-round performance and key contributions from multiple players. Kristaps Porzingis, in particular, will have to play much better offensively to help the team through.

 

Prediction

The series between the Dallas Mavericks and the LA Clippers has been a closely-contested one, and Game 7 is likely to go down the wire as well. The outcome of the match could go either way, but the Clippers' depth is something that could swing the tie in their favor.
