Mavs have been OK but unimpressive at home this season
Dallas Morning News blog:
he Mavericks have been a lukewarm home team all season. And that's being charitable.
They are 19-8 at AAC. There are seven teams in the Western Conference with better records at home. Seven had worse records, as of Sunday. It doesn't get any more middle of the road than that.
"We got a huge week here," coach Rick Carlisle said after a rare practice Sunday. "We've got to pick our game up and we've got to be good at home. There's a lot to be decided. This week is going to go a long way toward a lot of those scenarios. The Clippers have been a quality, high-level team all year. Like everybody, they've had their ups and downs. But they're a tough matchup for us."
