Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

Josh and I talk for quite a long time, previewing the Mavericks and Clippers playoff series.

For the first half of the episode, we get into the specifics of the match ups. First, we talk the offensive load Luka Doncic must bear, how Kristaps Porzingis should be the deciding factor when Dallas gets victories this series, and what the role players need to do for the Mavericks to succeed. Then we pivot to the defensive side of the ball, about the challenges Dallas has defending Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and where the Mavericks match up well and poorly. Before cutting to break we give our expectations for the series.

After commercial, we reminisce on the last Dallas playoff run, how quick this rebuild is compared to other teams, and how this compares to recent and future expectations. We end on some hopes for the series and what we hope the Mavericks take away from a challenging match up.
