What you need to know about the Mavericks

Dallas is wrapping up a six-game homestand with consecutive games against Los Angeles. The Mavericks dropped the first of these six games in overtime against Oklahoma City last Wednesday, but they have bounced back with a three-game winning streak. Their most recent victory came in a 116-86 blowout over Detroit on Tuesday. 

They have now held three straight opponents to fewer than 100 points and rank third in scoring defense overall this season. Luka Doncic scored 33 points and dished out 11 assists in Tuesday's win, marking the fifth time in six games that he has scored at least 30 points. Jalen Brunson has been playing well too, scoring at least 20 points in three of his last four games. 

What you need to know about the Clippers

Los Angeles has lost three of its last four games, including a 135-109 loss at Memphis on Tuesday. The Clippers trailed by as many as 34 points in the blowout loss, allowing the Grizzlies to shoot 51.5 percent from the floor. Los Angeles traded Eric Bledsoe, Keon Johnson and Justise Winslow to Portland for Robert Covington and Norman Powell earlier this week. 

Powell scored 16 points in Tuesday's loss to Memphis. The Clippers remain without leading scorer Paul George due to an elbow injury. They have won and covered the spread in five of their last seven games against Dallas.
