Stephen Nover's NBA Tuesday Totals Crusher
(NBA) Dallas vs. LA Clippers, 11/23/2021 10:30 PM, Score: 112 - 104
Total: 210.00 | -104.00 Under
Result: Loss
These two teams just met two days ago and the Clippers won, 97-91, for a combined 188 points. The total on that game was 208 1/2. Now it's slightly higher. I don't understand why?

There's talk Luka Doncic could play after missing the last three games. However, Doncic aggravated his knee/ankle injuries during Monday's practice. So he's a long shot to play. Even if Doncic were to play, which I highly doubt, he figures to be rusty.

The Clippers give up the fourth-fewest points and rank No. 2 in defensive efficiency allowing 99.8 points per 100 possessions.

Dallas is an above average defensive team with a strong tendency to go Under. The Under has cashed in 68 percent of the Mavericks' last 20 games.

The Clippers are still trying to figure things out offensively minus Kawhi Leonard. LA is averaging fewer than 97 points in its past five games.
