Mavericks-Clippers Preview By SANTOSH VENKATARAMAN Posted Dec 04 2012 8:29PM Not only will the Dallas Mavericks be bringing some former Los Angeles Clippers into this matchup, they'll see some familiar faces as well. The Clippers can stretch their win streak to four Wednesday night and hand the Mavericks a third straight road loss. Dallas (8-9) features a pair of former Clippers big men in Elton Brand and Chris Kaman. While Brand has faced Los Angeles (11-6) six times since leaving the club following the 2007-08 season, this will be Kaman's first road game against the team he spent his first eight seasons with before being....

clippers just need to bring the energy from the get go. cp3 needs to be the catalyst in leading the team to play with energy throughout the game. if we pounce on the mavs from the beginning, the clips can win going away. but it all starts with effort and defense.

Keys to the game 1. Paul has to shoot the ball and be aggressive early, 2.Griffin can't let Brand or Marion physical play best him, 3. Jordan defend Kaman like he did Jefferson will be less pump fakes and more up and under attempts like a million make him put the ball on the floor and he will turn it over more times than not.

DEFEND THE THREE BALL FOR ONCE. Without it they are an average team defend Mayo no sagging off

I feel like this game has a lot of interesting sub-plots to it.

Clips playing against Kaman and Brand. Odom returning to Dallas. OJ Mayo looking for revenge. Is Fisher starting for them yet? If so, that's another one..

Our front-court has to be on point. Brand and Kaman at their best can easily match (or overpower) Blake and DJ and they'll relish punking their old team at Staples.

Solid 'D' in the lane and ball movement on 'O' will get us a win.

X-Factor... Lamar Odom.

it would be funny if odom goes off on the mavs and shoves that in cuban's face. but yes, im with u cleepers, dj and bg need to play at a high level in order to deal with kaman and brand, even if they are past their prime.

We'll need a big game from Blake Griffin in this one. He's really going to have to work one of the hardest workers in the NBA going up against Elton Brand but this should prove to be a good test for him.

OJ Mayo is a great defender, and has plenty of experience guarding Chris Paul. I expect him to give CP3 a bit of trouble but I still expect Paul to find a way to be effective as he always does.

I personally view these Mavericks as one of those scrappy teams that work hard and hustle for every moment they're on the floor. We have to out work them and play smart basketball if we're going to win, especially going up against Rick Carlisle who's one of the very best coach's this league has to offer.

Enough potential drama here to satisfy the Kardashians. Lamar and Dallas. Kaman facing his former team for the first time. And Elton Brand. Oh me oh my!

PS: We got this one, no need for Mr. Big Shot to hit a game winner this time around.

If we make things tough on Mayo and play tough inside (i.e. rebound), we should be fine in this one. I am, of course, assuming that focus and energy won't be an issue in this game because: (1) its an ESPN game; (2) Dallas is still a high profile team, even if they're having a down year; (3) and going up against ex-Clipperss and the team that dumped Lamar.

I just want to see Odom have his first break out game of the season.

Will be interesting to see EB and Kaman playing together against the Clippers also. As long as we play smart and defend, I don't think the Mavs will be a problem, especially not at home.

We don't need to worry about Kaman and Brand too much, we really need to stop Mayo and also not let Jae Crowder go off, That dude can ball.

There's absolutely no reason why we can't win this game by 10+ points. But the key thing is to come out with the effort and not take these guys lightly.

I think it'll be close in the 1st half...then we open it up in the 2nd half.

Whenever Billups comes back, I'd like to see his minutes eased in more slowly, rather than jumping to ~20 min/game from the start. The training staff needs to keep a good eye on him.

Why the **** was Fisher given an ovation (according to the ESPN commentator)? That **** should've been booed. ****ing Flaker fans attending a Clipper game again.
