Clippers cruise to easy win against two-star Mavericks

Paul George led the charge with 25 points and nine rebounds as the Los Angeles Clippers (7-8) secured a comfortable 107-88 victory over the Dallas Mavericks (10-6), marking their fourth win in the last five games.

Terance Mann stepped up in a starting role, contributing 17 points, while Norman Powell added 15 points, showcasing the Clippers’ depth and versatility in their win against the normally high-scoring Mavericks.

Despite a quiet night from James Harden and a challenging start for Kawhi Leonard, who missed his first nine shots, the Clippers demonstrated they didn’t need all four stars to shine to secure a convincing victory.

Russell Westbrook played a key role with 14 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists, contributing to the Clippers’ dominance over the struggling Mavericks, who failed to surpass 100 points for the first time this season.

Luka Doncic led the Mavericks with 30 points, and Kyrie Irving added 26, but their efforts weren’t enough to overcome the Clippers’ defensive prowess and offensive depth.

The Clippers showcased resilience and adaptability, bouncing back from a home loss to the New Orleans Pelicans with a convincing win against the Mavericks, who had two days off in Los Angeles after beating the Lakers.

Mavs center Dereck Lively sat out the game due to a lower back bruise, while Ivica Zubac contributed 11 points and 14 rebounds for the Clippers, controlling the paint.
