Los Angeles Clippers are expected to be undermanned in the paint as Serge Ibaka will miss Game 3 of the series against the Dallas Mavericks, Shams Charania reports.

Ibaka will miss tonight’s pivotal Game 3 with the Clippers’ team being down 2-0 in the NBA playoffs opening round series.

The veteran big played just six minutes in Game 2 loss as he continued to work his way back from a two-month layoff due to a back injury.

Ivica Zubac is expected to receive an uptick in his minutes, while DeMarcus Cousins and Marcus Morris could also get more time in the court for the Clippers.
