Q's Quote:
"Mavericks are the defending Western Conference Champions, but they are yet to win a game on the new season, and with Josh Howard out, people have to be thinking the Clippers will be able to go to 4-1 and force the Mavericks to an 0-4 and record. But hold up, before you think about writing it off as an easy win for the Clippers, sit back and think. Are you really sure Dirk Nowitzki will let this team to go off to an 0-4 start, unless they are tanking to get Greg Oden? I don't, and I'm a Clippers fan. The Mavericks will come out, fired up, just like the Suns did on the Clippers opening night, and the Clippers have to make sure they don't fall asleep on them."

Q's Keys To The Game:
  • Pound the ball into Elton Brand. Sure the man is off to a slow start(15/8), but by pounding the ball inside, Clippers might get Dirk into foul trouble, leaving Jason Terry as the only real threat on the court for most of the time.
  • Put Ross on Terry and keep it that way. If my projected starting units are right, then Ross should be able to contain Terry, while Cassell won't have to worry much with Buckner.
  • Rebounds will determine the winner. If Clippers allow the Mavericks to get many 2nd chance points or vice-versa, expect that to determine who will win the match.

Q's Prediciton: Clippers win 102-97
Q's Prediction Record: 3-1

Smile The keys to the game..

besides being first to 100 are:

*Homecourt advantage. A Sellout helps the Clips.

*Defense on Dirk. Q Ross will get the first shot with Kaman
switching on him inside.

*Balanced attack led by EB.

*Maggette coming off the bench to get the Mavs in foul trouble.

Prediction: Clips 97 Mavs 92

It looks pretty good, the odd makers have The Clippers favored by 2.5 points. This is a very dangerous game tonight because the Clippers are coming off a three game win streak and Dallas has not won all season. hopefully the Clippers can capitalize on the fact they have not won yet.

Using Q Ross and Kaman on Dirk is very smart, Dirk will have to adjust his game all game long if we do this. I also recommend using James Singleton on Dirk. A couple years ago, Bobby Simmons had alot of success guarding Dirk and I think Singleton whos similar in size but more athletic would also help in containing Nowitzki tonight

Mobley owned Dirk tonight. That was probably the story of the night.

You were probably busy watching The laker's game but Mobley was assigned to defend Dirk throughout a majority of the game. That is what clipps was talking about.

Sat in PR last night for the first time Never have I gone thru the VIP entrance I felt special. And what a game, Dunleavy's a genius putting Mobley on Dirk, I bet Avery Johnson never saw that one coming.
