Here are the highlights of the Game 6 match between the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks which was scheduled on August 31, 2020 (Local Time).
For the first time since 2015, the Clippers will advance to the Western Conference semi-finals after they clipped the Mavs in Game 6, 111-97.
Kawhi Leonard and company used the second quarter to gain their momentum and after that, they never looked back to make sure no more comeback from their opponent.
Los Angeles took advantage of the absence of Kristaps Porzingis who got sidelined due to a knee injury.
Leonard, the prime scoring carrier of the Clippers scored 33 points along with his 14 rebounds. His buddy Paul George who made a scoring bounce-back in Game 5 teased a triple-double outing with his 15 points, nine rebounds, and seven dimes.
Dallas heavily relied on their young and bright superstar, Luka Doncic and he didn’t fail his coach and their fans where he registered 38 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists.
Yet, Doncic clearly needed another scoring threat for them to be in contention.
The Clippers will now wait for the winner between the Utah Jazz and the Denver Nuggets where the series is now tied at 3-3 after Jamal Murray and his teammates survived in their Game 6 showdown.
