This Sunday evening, the Mavs and the Clippers play their season with a Game 7. For the occasion, difficult to designate a favorite, even if the story is in the direction of Dallas. This statistic does not argue in favor of Tyronn Lue’s men.
While the second round of the playoffs will begin this Saturday night in the NBA, some teams have not yet finished with the first. This is the case of the Mavericks and the Clippers, who will play this Sunday evening in a highly anticipated meeting: a Game 7, where the loser will earn the right to go on vacation.
Kawhi leonard against Luka Doncic ? We are now curious to see who will succeed in best carrying his team towards victory. If we are to rely on history, it is in any case Dallas that starts with a slight lead. It all depends on how much importance you place on this stuff.
Indeed, the figures are clear: the Mavs like to play at Staples Center in the playoffs. During the last 10 years, the Texas franchise has visited this room 5 times for a playoff match. His record? 5 wins, for 0 losses.

The Mavs arrive this Sunday in Game 7 with a 5-0 record in the playoffs at Staples Center. 2021: 3-0 against the Clippers. 2011: 2-0 against the Lakers.
We can obviously put the Lakers aside, but the stat with the Clippers certainly bodes well for the future. The Mavs are confident this season in Los Angeles, which could be important in Game 7. Unless of course Kawhi Leonard decides otherwise.
The winger was a hit in Game 6, recalling why he was considered one of the best in the league. After the meeting, Doncic had recognized the superiority of his opponent, even if he intends to answer him at the next deadline.
Dallas loves playing at Staples Center, which might be a game-changer for Game 7. However, and if the franchise is to advance to the next round, no choice: Luka Doncic is going to have to be monstrous.
