WHAT: A final chance to actually beat this pesky team.
WHERE: STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, California
WHEN: 9:30 p.m. CDT
THE STORY: Soooooo YEAH. The Mavericks have not beat the Clippers this season. They've come close! They've had chances! They've had leads! Big leads even! But in the end, it has always come down to playing defense on a scale I've lovingly started calling "zero to accidental," letting Blake Griffin and Matt Barnes bait them into techs, and whatever else these crazy games between these two teams have had in store. Which has been a lot!
I don't know that I could even call it stealing one when the Mavs have been so close to beating this team so many times, but let's hope the Mavs can steal one tonight and not sink back in the playoff race for once. That would be nice.
Previews here, music video below, you know what to do. Let's. Go. Mavs.
