Kristaps Porzingis is confident the Dallas Mavericks can eliminate the Los Angeles Clippers.

The big man of the Mavs strongly believes his team can win the series against the Clippers, despite the loss in Game 1 (110-118).

“Our belief is still strong that we can beat these guys. If we didn’t have the belief, we wouldn’t be here, anyway, and that’s our mindset going into the second game,” Porzingis said, per Brad Towsend of The Dallas Morning News.

Porzingis was ejected early in the third quarter of Game 1, finishing the night with 14 points, six rebounds and one assist.

Game 2 will take place on Wednesday.
