Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes
Paul George hit 7-of-15 shots, three 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws for 23 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals in Wednesday's Game 5 105-100 loss to the Mavericks as the Clippers fell into a 2-3 hole in the series. Kawhi Leonard and Reggie Jackson (six 3-pointers) both scored 20 points as Patrick Beverley fell out of the rotation, and Marcus Morris added 16 points, seven boards and four 3-pointers, and Nicolas Batum scored 10 points with seven boards in the loss. The Clippers and Mavs have figured out how to win on the road in every game this series, but the Clippers' backs are up against a wall as the Mavericks will look to close this thing out at home on Friday. Find a way to get in front of a television for Game 6, as it should be epic.
Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes
Luka Doncic (cervical strain) and Maxi Kleber (Achilles soreness) are both probable for Friday’s Game 6 against the Clippers. There is no universe where Luka won’t play in a closeout game against one of the most talented teams in the league, and it’s safe to assume the same for Kleber. Expect no changes to the starters for the time being.
