Venue – American Airlines Center
DAL vs LAC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Dallas Mavericks will be aiming to snap their four-game losing streak when they host the Los Angeles Clippers in an NBA match at American Airlines Center, in Dallas, Texas, on Wednesday morning (IST).
Los Angeles Clippers could use another win here against a struggling Dallas Mavericks to boost their playoff chances. The team was once sitting at the top of Western Conference, winning games against big teams.
But since December the 3rd, it has been a bumpy ride for the Doc Rivers and his whole squad. They have played 25 games in that period and have won only 10 games. It’s a return which could have yanked them out of the playoff positions, but the teams below them struggled for consistency as well. And at the moment, Clippers are just about hanging on to the top-8 places.
However, with each passing game, the gap is trimming down. The likes of Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings are within few wins away from usurping them.
In the last match, Clippers did produce a good result after beating the San Antonio Spurs 95-103 on the road. Four Clippers’ players scored in the double-digits, led by Tobias Harris (27 points, 9 assists and 9 rebounds).
Dallas Mavericks, on the other hand, will be looking to get back to winning ways after losing the last four games. But the good thing for them is ythey will be at home in their next game and against a team which is struggling for consistency this season.
Regular Season Record-
Dallas Mavericks: W-20, L-26
Los Angeles Clippers: W-25, L-21
Players to watch out for:
Luke Doncic – A player who deserves a better view from the table than he is enduring at the moment. Luka Doncic is still 19, but he has been carrying his team like a seasoned player this season. The Slovenian small forward is certainly the best offensive player in Mavericks’ rank at the moment.
Harrison Barnes – The 26-year-old is averaging 18.1 points per game this season. This is his best season so far since he turned was picked up by Golden State Warriors in the 2012 NBA draft.
Los Angeles Clippers:
Tobias Harris – He was instrumental in the last game as Clippers took a big scalp on the road by beating San Antonio Spurs. The 26-year-old was no doubt the team’s highest scorer in the match, dropping 27 points and a team-high 9 assists as well. His season average is 21.0 points per game.
Danilo Gallinari – He is a doubt for the match but if he plays expect him to make a difference. The 30-year-old is a consistent player, and scores points in double digits more often than not.

From the bench:
DAL vs LAC Dream11 Fantasy Team:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Los Angeles Clippers are 4-6 in their last 10 games, and 1-5 in their last five matches against Western Conference teams. But Clippers are performing well in recent away games, winning three times in the last four on the road.
Their last win should give Tobias Harris and Co. a huge lift as they take on Mavericks.
An away win for Clippers is our call.
