Lou Williams followed up his efforts with 32 points, five assists and four triples while Montrezl Harrell chipped in 24 points of his own.

Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Mavericks are rolling once again and their last game, they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers by 8 points. Luka Doncic was amazing with 35 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. He also dropped eight three-pointers over the Trail Blazers. He god good help from Tim Hardaway Jr. who had 29 points. Seth Curry had 16 points and Jalen Brunson added 13 points as both players came off the bench. The Mavs are learning to be more independent without Kristaps Porzingis and it scares the league how good the Mavs can be under a 20-year-old Doncic. Against the Clippers, the Mavs should maximize rotating the ball quickly to confuse the defense of the Clippers and shooters have to be on cue once they get those open passes.
