The Clippers and Mavericks have one meeting this season and it took a last second shot by guard Chauncey Billips in LA’s 91-89 win as a +3 ½ point underdog. Chris Paul was dealing with the effects of a hamstring issue and did not play in that game. Billips is now out for the year with an Achilles injury.

LA Clippers have had two major tests on this road trip with all resulting in victories. They traveled to Philadelphia and came away with a 78-77 win. Last Monday night they were at Orlando and came away with the 107-102 overtime win as a -1 point favorite. Chris Paul will be a difficult matchup for an old Jason Kidd on the court tonight. Paul took over a scoring role during the success at Philadelphia with 24 points and at Orlando he had 29 points.

The Mavericks are playing good basketball right now with three straight wins with two of those victories on the road. They were in a tough spot for an old team on Saturday night playing the back end of a back to back and their third game in four nights in an overtime 97-94 home win against Portland. We have seen the Mavericks scoring touch come back in those victories. That has been led by Dirk Nowitzki who has averaged 25 points per game over his past four games. The question here is how the Mavericks will match the youth of Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan who will have fresh legs after seeing limited minutes in their blowout win on Saturday at Charlotte.
