LAC vs DAL Dream11: The NBA’s West has been highly competitive this century. In this match, two Western Conference squads in Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks meet up against each other. Clippers won the last meeting between the two teams while the Mavericks have lost the last three games without Doncic
Clippers are an experienced unit with Bledsoe-Jackson-George forming the PG-SF spots. The squad has gone on a seven-game winning streak before but then lost the last two before a win against the depleted Mavs. If we talk about the Dallas Mavericks had been on fire before Doncic’s injury, winning nine out of its 13 games but the offense has derailed in his absence. Still, the team plays tough on the offensive end, and even without Luka, teams have had to grind out wins against them.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Mavericks: Second half problems without Doncic
During the last three games, the Mavs have kept the opponents down till the second half and stood with a chance till late in the last quarter. Doncic is a superb late-game player and his absence made the team lose all those games. Dallas plays tough on defense and it is not like the unit has gotten steamrolled even without Luka. With Porzingis and Brunson consistently contributing 20 points or so the Mavericks will be back to their own once Doncic is back.
Clippers: Issues to shore out
Clippers can go cold from the field at times. While their defense is usually strong, the team can falter if the offense struggles. In some cases when Reggie Jackson is struggling from the field, PG has to take around 25-30 shots and the passing game is hurt then. Bledsoe needs to be more consistent as he goes into a shell at times, however, Zubac has been showing more visibility on the offensive end. The Clippers still have ways to go but it seems like they will hold the fort till Kawhi returns.
