The Dallas Mavericks lost more than one game on Friday. They potentially lost their best player, Luka Doncic, following a left ankle sprain suffered in the third quarter. They are now following the series 2-1 after their 130-122 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, and after Doncic had to wince for a few minutes of the fourth quarter, the odds of him playing 100% in Game 4 seem slim. . The Clippers now firmly control this series.And they can thank Kawhi Leonard for that. He tallied 36 points on 13 of 24 shots while also providing his stellar defense to help give his Clippers the seed. Another night of rest for Paul George wasn’t enough to stop Leonard from securing the win, and with Doncic now compromised, the Clippers should feel pretty confident in their chances. They only need to win two more games to advance to the second round.
