Game Thread: Mavericks at Clippers

New, comments

Who: The Los Angeles Clippers host the Dallas Mavericks

What: An opportunity for the Mavericks to redeem themselves after a sloppy loss at home to Memphis

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA

When: 2:30pm CT/3:30pm ET

How: NBA League Pass is still having their free preview. Locally, you can see the game on FSSW-DAL and PRIME.

The Story:

The Clippers have struggled a bit to start the season, but they have the great and mighty Blake Griffin who is finally getting to show the world why he went first in the draft. The Mavericks executed quite poorly in their last go-round, so it will be interesting to see how they rebound from such a disappointing loss. This team's resiliency was one of their strong points- being able to bounce back after a loss shouldn't be too much to ask of them.

Interesting tidbit... the Mavericks and the Clippers played on this date one year ago, and the Mavericks won 93-83.
