Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes
Kawhi Leonard hit 13-of-17 shots and 7-of-7 free throws for 36 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and three triples in Friday's 118-108 Game 3 win over Dallas. Kawhi said before the game that the key for the Clippers is “staying on an even keel,” and it certainly seemed that way tonight. "Just like the regular season, you might lose two in a row and then you go on a winning streak, so just having that same mentality." The Clippers got the best out of Paul George tonight too, as he dropped 29 points on 11-of-18 shooting. Game 4 will be on Sunday in Dallas.
Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes
Luka Doncic (cervical strain) is questionable for Game 4 vs. the Clippers on Sunday. After the Game 3 loss, Luka said the pain started in his neck and went down to his left arm. The Mavs usually get destroyed whenever Luka takes a breather, and with Kristaps Porzingis struggling so much they won't have a chance if Luka is unable to play.
