Los Angeles Clippers are hoping for a bounce back win in Game 3 vs. the Mavericks. Dallas is leading the Western Conference first round series 2-0.

Despite their previous disappointing outings vs. the Mavs, the Clippers’ head coach Ty lue believes his team will show who they really are on Thursday’s contest.

(via ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk):

“I think when you’re down 2-0 and you’re coming into another team’s arena, it shows what you’re made of. Our toughness all year, just trust, sticking together, this is going to show us tomorrow who we are and what we are made of. So I’m excited to see [it],” Lue said on Wednesday.

… [The Clippers have to] understand the urgency and understand what we are trying to do and basically, everybody get on the same page. That’s the biggest thing for me. But like I said, we are urgent and we are ready to go. We cleaned up some things we need to clean up.”

The Clippers are set to face Dallas on Thursday night for Game 3 of the opening round playoff series in the Western Conference.
