The Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers are facing off in the second of two NBA games being televised nationally on Wednesday night. ESPN executives are surely hoping both teams rebound from their previous performances when they face off on in the second game of a doubleheader at 10:30 on Wednesday night.
The Mavericks last appeared on national television just a couple of nights ago when they treated the audience to a 73-70 stinker before Derek Fisher hit a game-winning three-pointer in the waning seconds to give the Los Angeles Lakers the victory. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for Dirk Nowitzki's team, but there's a solid chance they could get back on the winning track Wednesday night.
The Clippers made quite the resurgence this offseason when they traded for Chris Paul, but the point guard likely won't be in the lineup for Lob City's match-up with the defending champions. If Paul is still unable to go due to injury, it's likely the Blake Griffin show will be in full effect against the aging Mavs.
Either way, it's NBA basketball on national television so everyone may as clear their schedule and tune in to the sports!
