Dallas Mavericks Betting
It was a tough loss for the Dallas Mavericks as they lost to the Los Angeles Clippers at home by just three points. Luka Doncic had a strong night with almost a triple-double with 36 points, ten rebounds and nine assists. It was the first game back for Kristaps Porzingis but he seems to be shaking off the cobwebs after missing games as he did only 4-of-17 to finish with 10 points and nine rebounds. Dwight Powell ruptured his Achilles tendon in that game and is expected to miss the entire season. In his absence, big man Boban Marjanovic had 12 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in 16 minutes.
