Ivica Zubac is confident he can be dominant against the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs.
The big man of the Los Angeles Clippers believes he can make the difference for his team inside the paint, since Mavs’ center Dwight Powell is out with an Achilles injury.
“I feel like I can get to offensive rebounds more. I feel like rolling through the pocket, it feels like I have more space. You know, I just feel physically that I can get a lot of offensive rebounds.
Their starting center, Dwight Powell, is out, so I think physically I can really take advantage of that match-up,” Zubac said, via ClutchPoints’ Tomer Azarly.
Zubac is averaging 11.3 points and 11.1 rebounds in seven seeding games in the Orlando bubble including a perfect shooting night against the Mavs a few days ago.
Zubac and the Clippers will clash with the Mavericks in the playoffs, which start next week.
