Mavericks-Clippers Preview By JEFF MEZYDLO Posted Jan 14 2014 11:50AM Riding a three-game winning streak, the Dallas Mavericks feel they're better prepared than the last time they faced the Los Angeles Clippers. Looking to match their longest winning stretch of the season, the visiting Mavericks hope to avenge a loss earlier this month to a Clippers team that's also trying for a fourth straight victory Wednesday night. Dallas (23-16) averaged 108.5 points and shot 49.0 percent while sweeping a home-and-home set with New Orleans then rolled to a 107-88 victory over lowly Orlando on Monday. The Mavericks are seven games above .500 for the first....

Their two win againts pelicans and wolves are questionable, it was a bonus from the ref.

I'd like to see a great defensive effort right off the back. I've only seen us start strong off defensively a few times, usually we wait until the 3rd. I also would like to see a great defensive showing from Blake against Dirk, but realize I might be asking for too much.

Interesting connections here. Collison vs his old team. Redick vs old teammates Ellis and Carter. Interesting matchup between Dirk and Blake (although they will probably put Marion on BG). Dallas is good. I'm almost surprised by their record. But with JJ back, and with Jamal due for a great game...we need to beat their @ss!

Gotta find a way to get "up" against these guys. This game doesn't have the energizing effect of a Grizz, Dubs, Spurs, OKC or Lakers matchup, but they're still dangerous.

Maybe the fact that they're the ones who took out our point-god should be on the bulletin board. I'm looking for a blitz in the first Q like the last few games. And keep an eye on Calderon... he missed a bunch of open 3's last time and will likely be out to drop some bombs.

I like the idea of Monta having to guard Redick and Jose having to guard Collison. Both in theory should get torched tonight, but that doesn't mean they don't do the exact same to us.

Blake just keep doing you. DJ you need to pretend Dirk is Al Jefferson and don't bite on everything, you've improved immensely in that area. Dudley just hit one or two 3's and I'll be happy.

Let's get it boys!

It'd be nice if Jamal could get hot tonight, it'd be great for him and would really help the team.

Team needs to finish off the home stand strong. Knicks are finding their flow outside of their last loss so they may be tough at home and the Pacers are always a tough outing. Rest of the road trip looks easy enough but this team has come out very flat against East teams.

Strange that we struggle against eastern teams. The heat, Pacers, and Atlanta I could understand, but to lose against the lotto bound east teams is odd. There's got to be some underlying cause.

It would be great if Jamal can just be average tonight. Wink

Clippers need to bring out their anaconda defense, lol. Squeeze the Mavs tight and suffocate their offense. I'm hoping Dirk slumps off too to make things easier. It'd be a great way to start a Grammy road trip by winning tonight!

I wouldn't necessarily say we struggle against east teams, 9-6 is ok b=not great but not terrible

I've said it before and I'll say it again... when Ralph eventually decides to hang it up and his microphone is in the rafters at Staples, we'll be in excellent hands with Brian Sieman.

Check out this Blake Griffin mix from his soundcloud...

Some epic calls in there... "What's worse... being a Kardashian or being in the Mozgov hall of fame?".

Brian Sieman is fantastic, it's a Shane that he'll have to replace an all time Legend.

Those are some big shoes to fill.

I'm hoping Vince Carter goes for 30 points tonight, but we still win comfortably. VC's been one of my favorite players for years, but the Clippers need to win this one. It would be great to go on a nice win streak without CP3 to get everyone's confidence up.

VC is one of those old gems that is still continues to be a threat but goes under the radar now

Selfishly, I hope no Mav has a good game tonight. In fact, I want us to beat them so bad, they all contemplate retirement. Razz

Do we have another player named Jamal that I haven't heard of?

Oh the amount of puns we can make with the last name Sieman lol. I'll give it the first shot:

No amount of Seiman can ever compensate for Ralph.

I'm more worried about what his idiom equivalent of "Lawler's Law" would be.

"Sieman's seed" - You've gotta come with energy!

lol, you know that for one minute when Kevin Love was drafted by the Grizzlies that team would have had Gay Love on their team. When asked about the awkwardness of those two last names on the same team Love chuckled and said "I guess we're going to have to try and avoid standing next to each other"

Lol, awesome. Oh god, its gonna be good times when Sieman takes the the mantle. These puns are the best. Someone suggest this to Tosh.0 on the how many puns in limited seconds segment

From LAClippers "Doc says Reggie Bullock (ankle) is available, but "he's not 100% yet so we're going to take that slow"

So we may not see much of Reggie tonight

Should have kept them together and traded for Ramon Sessions. That huddle would have been hilarious.

I remember seeing this pic ages ago...

Gay, Love, Sessions, LMFAO no one would want to go near that huddle. You could discuss any play without fear of a Rondo eavesdrop

LOL, I never thought I would hear a Brian Sieman mix set to Aloe Blacc music. Good stuff though. And I agree, I think Sieman would make a good TV play by play man for the Clippers once Ralph retires.

let's win this... every time I think of the Mavs/Clips match up, I'm always reminded of Blake's potential game winner of a lifetime if Dirk had not flopped.

Although he has to change his last name though, Sieman is just an obscene word..perhaps Brian Man Milk would be more family friendly

True... but I prefer to remember his spectacular screen (taking out 2 Mavs) for Chauncey's game-winner with 1 second left.

Yeah... "Pearl Jam" probably would have been more appropriate for a Sieman mix.

I have a feeling Collison is going to have another big game against his old team.

That's a bad-early foul on DJ. Let's hope he can control himself and stay out of foul trouble.
