The Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks meet Tuesday in NBA action at the American Airlines Center.

The Los Angeles Clippers could use a win after losing seven of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 114.5 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 114.2 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Tobias Harris is averaging 21 points and eight rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19 points and 2.5 assists. Lou Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 38.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.5 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have split their last eight road games.

The Dallas Mavericks could use a win here after losing seven of their last nine games. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 109.6 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 109.6 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 20 points and 5.1 assists while Harrison Barnes is averaging 18.1 points and 4.2 rebounds. Wesley Matthews is the third double-digit scorer and DeAndre Jordan is grabbing 13.9 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 74.8 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46 rebounds per game. The Dallas Mavericks have split their last six home games.

The Clippers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Mavericks are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 Tuesday games, 13-5 ATS in their last 18 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 0 days rest. The Clippers are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Dallas and 2-5-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The under is 7-2 in Mavericks last 9 overall. The under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 overall.

The home team has won each of the last seven meetings between the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks, which includes both meetings back in December. The Clippers are still without two of their better players in Lou Williams and Gallinari, and they're losing by an average of 7.8 points in their last five games. The Dallas Mavericks have been at their best at home this season where they're winning by an average of almost six points and have covered 15 of their 22 games. With the Clippers banged up and the Mavs at home, I'll lay the small number here.

Pick:
Dallas Mavericks -4
