That was enough for the Mavericks to stop a two-game losing run, and oddsmakers are optimistic about their prospects of picking up another win on Tuesday against the Clippers. The Mavericks now have a record of 7-5 and are 6-1 at home (7-6, 4-2 away). The Dallas Mavericks started off as the favorite to win at home in the NBA odds, and they are looking to win their sixth game played inside their own arena so far this year.
The phrase “coffee is for closers” is printed on a funny tee that has been making its way around the internet for some time now. It would appear like Luka Doncic took those words to heart. Doncic went out and recorded the fourth 40-point triple double of his career after consuming anywhere from two to four shots of espresso before his most recent game. He couldn’t keep count of how much coffee he drank.

Betting Analysis for Dallas Mavericks
The Mavs’ 117-112 victory over the Trail Blazers on Saturday was won by Doncic, whose final score is right out of a video game. 13 rebounds, 10 assists, and 42 points. In the process, he became just the sixth NBA player to have at least four triple-doubles of at least 40 points.
The effort comes after two unsuccessful appearances in which he had trouble on the field. In back-to-back defeats to the Magic and Wizards, the top-two NBA MVP chances challenger hit only 17 of 50 from the field and was kept to under 30 points for the first two games this season.
Although Doncic complained of being worn out in those two losses, he was in full flight versus Portland. Spencer Dinwiddie and Christian Wood were the main winners with 20 and 19 points, respectively, as a result of the additional attention he attracted.
Dallas is one of the rare teams that enters the game ranked in the top 10 on both offense and defense. They are the second most effective club from inside the three-point arc offensively, with the fifth greatest effective field goal.
Only one club allows fewer three-pointers per game, and they allow the fourth fewest defensive points per game. They take care of the ball at the other end, averaging the sixth fewest turnovers, and they average the third most steals per game.
Betting Analysis for Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles, on the other hand, was in play on Monday night after losing to Brooklyn by a score of 110-95 over the weekend. Scorekeeping was a problem, as it has been all season, and the loss ended a two-game winning streak.
While failing to score 100 points for the sixth time in 13 games, the Clippers only managed a 40% shooting percentage against the Nets. While posting five fewer assists than the Nets, LA made 18 turnovers.
Paul George had the most points (17), although his field goal percentage was only 23.8%. The Clippers have only lost once since Halloween, but the offense can hardly be blamed for most of their recent success. LA starts the game with the lowest offensive and scoring ratings.
Only the Suns and Bucks have a better rating on their own end, so defense is where they make their money. The Clippers are keeping opposition shooters to a 44.9% field goal percentage, which is the third lowest figure in the NBA, and are now ranked sixth in scoring defense.
Kawhi Leonard is once again taking part in 5-on-5 drills but is still unable to fully recover from his persistent knee issue. On Monday at Houston, Leonard missed his 11th straight game. He also won’t play against Dallas.
Prediction for Clippers vs Mavericks
There have been a lot of low scoring games as a result of LA’s excellent defense and horrible offense. The Clippers are the NBA club with the most games that have failed to reach the total, with an under record of 11-2.
Dallas on Tuesday should have a lackluster attacking performance, particularly on the LA side. The Mavs defense is comparable to LA’s, while the Clippers’ offensive chances will suffer from their exhausted bodies after playing two back-to-back games.
Bottom 5 for Team Possessions Per Game
|28||Portland Trail Blazers||100.6|
The tempo at which both sides play is another factor supporting the notion that there won’t be many goals. Dallas has the league’s slowest offense, while LA ranks 23rd in pace this season.
