Los Angeles Clippers were unable to protect their home court as Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks regained the lead in the series.
With LA one loss away from elimination, the Clippers’ head coach Ty Lue appeared confident in his post-game statements regarding the Western Conference playoff series.
“I think we’re fine,” Lue told reporters, per ESPN. “We’ll see in two days, but [from what] everybody talked about in the locker room, we’re good.”
Despite their poor shooting (41.6%), Luka Doncic pushed the Mavericks back ahead in the series with another incredible performance, tallying 42 points, 14 assists, eight rebounds and one steal in 43 minutes.
The Clippers are heading back to Dallas for Game 6 of the series. If they cannot find a way to win on Friday, their season will end with another postseason disappointment.
