Clippers vs Dallas: what tactics will the Mavericks choose?
20/08/2020, 01:00 GTM
And so, the series will be distinguished by attacking actions from both sides, rather than defensive ones. The Clippers' attack is more powerful, their bench is more powerful and in defense Beverly will "gnaw anyone's heels."
The Clippers started the previous fight not in the best way. Winning in the first quarter with a score of 18-2, Sail-makers ended up losing 34-38. It seemed that such a development of events could knock the ground from under the feet of Doc Rivers' charges. But Kawhi Leonard and Paul George took matters into their own hands. For two, this tandem scored 56 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists. This significantly helped the Clippers to beat the Mavericks (118-110).
In general, the performance of the sailboats was no different from those demonstrated by the Dallas players. But thanks to the fact that the Clippers made more shots on the opponent's ring, they won.

"Dallas" will still not get out of the crisis. After the resumption of the season, Luka Doncic and company are playing below their capabilities. For example, in nine fights, they won only three victories. At the moment, the Mavs have lost three matches in a row. In addition to the loss to the Clippers, the Mavericks also have failures in the confrontation with Portland (131-134) and Phoenix (102-128).
The team from Texas runs the risk of a duel against the Clippers without Kristaps Porzingis. The representative of Latvia has a knee injury. His appearance on the floor is in doubt.
Offensively, Dallas is no stronger than the Clippers, so the Mavericks are unlikely to play open basketball with an opponent. Rick Carlisle's charges need to focus on protecting their own ring. Only then they will be able to count on success. Previous fights between these teams took place in a similar vein. Most likely, this one will also be no exception.
