The LA Clippers are looking to bounce back from last season’s embarrassing playoff loss to the Denver Nuggets in which they blew a commanding 3-1 lead, and they got off to a great start with premium road wins over the Los Angeles Lakers and the Nuggets. But things are not going as planned on Sunday against the Dallas Mavericks with Kawhi Leonard out after having taken a blow to his mouth on Saturday that produced quite a bit of blood.

Dallas jumped out to a huge lead at halftime — specifically, the hugest lead after two quarters of action in NBA history since the shot clock era started in 1954 per ESPN Stats & Info. The Clippers trailed 77-27, and it’s even a home game.

The Mavericks shot 58% from the field in the first half and made 9 of 20 attempts from 3-point range, while the Clippers shot just 24.3% and missed 18 of their 19 long-range attempts. Cheap Luka Doncic Jersey had 18 points, seven rebounds and four assists, while Cheap Josh Richardson Jersey added 15 points. Paul George scored 13 points for the Clippers, but no one else had more than six points.

LA quickly went on a 10-0 run to start the third quarter and cut the deficit to 40, but it’s almost certainly too late. Now the Clippers will hope that Leonard can return soon after receiving eight stitches stemming from an accidental elbow to the face courtesy of Serge Ibaka. George said he was worried initially that Leonard might have sustained a concussion, and coach Tyronn Lue said he did not know what the timetable might be for Leonard’s return.

“Really worried,” George said, via ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “I was thinking of the worst. I didn’t know if he was concussed or how hard of a hit [it was] or what actually happened, because I didn’t see it. I just saw him laying on the ground. That was first and foremost, just making sure he was OK.”

LOS ANGELES — The Dallas Mavericks built a historic 50-point halftime lead en route to demolishing the LA Clippers 124-73 on Sunday.

The Mavericks’ 77-27 halftime lead at Staples Center topped the previous mark for biggest halftime lead in an NBA game — 47 points by the Golden State Warriors over the Sacramento Kings in November 1991, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.

The Mavericks (1-2) led by 57 at one point and maintained a lead of at least 40 points for the final 31 minutes, 11 seconds, the longest stretch by any team over the past 25 seasons, according to research by ESPN Stats & Information.

“We showed who we are,” said Mavericks point guard Cheap Luka Doncic Jersey, who had 24 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists in 26 minutes. “People judged us off the first two games of the season. It’s a long season, but we’ve got to keep going like that. We’ve got to play defense. That’s our specialty from now on.”


Inside the numbers of Mavs’ 51-point win over Clips
The Clippers (2-1) hope they won’t be judged by the worst loss in franchise history. The 51-point defeat surpassed a 50-point loss to the Seattle SuperSonics in December 1988.

Playing without the injured Kawhi Leonard (mouth laceration) and Marcus Morris (knee), the Clippers scored just five points in the first eight-plus minutes and didn’t reach 20 points until there was 5:01 left in the second quarter.

“I take full responsibility,” said Clippers guard Paul George, who scored 15 points but missed all six of his 3-point attempts. “You know, it’s a tough game coming [after] Christmas. I enjoyed my Christmas Day [celebration] yesterday. Today just popped up on me a little too fast. I’ll take full ownership for that, coming out and being prepared to play today. Be a different situation come next game, and we will be ready.”

The Clippers’ first-half woes came after an impressive start to the season in which they beat the Los Angeles Lakers on opening night and defeated the Nuggets in Denver on Friday.

They didn’t return to Los Angeles until early Saturday, and the team spent the day celebrating the holiday with their families because Cheap Tim Hardaway Jersey were on the road for Christmas Day, George said.

“I hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas Day yesterday and that was the reason for a sluggish day today,” George said.

The Mavericks opened the game shooting 58% overall, burying nine 3-pointers in the first half. The Clippers made a total of nine field goals while missing 18 of 19 3-point attempts in the half, their worst 3-point field goal percentage in a half over the past 25 seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info research.

“The funny thing is, no one realized it until we got into halftime, to be honest with you,” Mavs guard Cheap Tim Hardaway Jr. Jersey said of the halftime margin. “It was just everybody making sure that we didn’t focus on the score at all. … Everything was just clicking on all cylinders, and thankfully we got the win.”

Ty Lue’s team finished 4-for-33 from 3-point range. Before the game, the Clippers’ coach said he wasn’t sure when Leonard will return. The All-Star forward needed eight stitches on his mouth following Friday night’s win in Denver.

Lue and George both said the Clippers will be ready Tuesday when they face Minnesota at home.

“Just an exception,” Lue said of the loss. “It doesn’t take away from what we’ve been doing and what we’ve been working on and how we’re trying to get better each night.

“[There] wasn’t a lot of fight, a lot of pop tonight, and we know we’ll have that come next game.”

The Mavericks’ vow to be better defensively this season was the driving force behind acquiring Josh Richardson and James Johnson in trades last month.

In the case of Richardson, it added to the crowded house at the small forward and shooting guard positions, which these days are largely interchangeable.

Richardson joins Cheap Tim Hardaway Jr. Jersey, rookie Cheap Josh Green Jersey, Cheap Wes Iwundu Jersey and several others, including maybe Cheap Jalen Brunson Jersey and Cheap Dorian Finney-Smith Jersey in that mass of talented players.

To which, Carlisle says, no worries.

“Great defenders and wing scorers are at a premium right now,” Carlisle said Sunday when asked how the wing spots will ultimately play out. “I know what you’re asking: who’s going to start? Who’s going to come off the bench?

“I don’t know that. At this point, I project Cheap Josh Richardson Jersey as a starter on this team. And as we move forward, we’ll do whatever’s best for this team.”

As always.

But Richardson has been a starter for most of his career and is only now entering his prime. He checks all the boxes that the Mavericks look for at the wing spots: defense, 3-point shooting and playmaking ability.

Talk about a blockbuster. The Dallas Mavericks have been rumored to want another superstar to pair with Luka Doncic heading into the NBA season but in this deal, they would be forced to give one away. It’s worth it though as it lands Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic in a deal.

Dallas has their franchise player in Cheap Luka Doncic Jersey. The team will go as he goes in the future. The Mavericks acquired Cheap Kristaps Porzingis Jersey from the New York Knicks in a deal almost one year ago. The duo of Doncic and Porzingis was supposed to be the future in Dallas but could they deal him for another big name?

The Denver Nuggets are another team with a dynamic duo. The combination of Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic was on full display in the bubble during their run to the Western Conference Finals.

This is a point guard driven league. Murray is secure in Denver but the same might not be said about Jokic. If they are offered a massive return, the Nuggets could pull the trigger on a deal.

This is a trade where the two bigs would swap teams. Here is what it might look like if the Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks team up to make a trade.

But mostly defense, which has been the top priority in the early days of training camp.

Speaking of which: The Mavericks are determined to improve on their defensive standing, which was middle-of-the-pack at best last season.

Their epic offense carried them. And that can’t be the case any longer, Carlisle said.

“We’re spending more time on it,” he said. “Philosophically, we’ve changed a couple of things in our approach which we think will help make us better. And on the personnel side, we do think we have some guys who will facilitate us being a better defensive team because they’re better defenders.

“But defense is a mindset. It’s an attitude. Offensively last year, we were historically great. But we were all offense all the time and below average (on defense). If you really want to be a contending team, the numbers I’ve seen over the years (say) you have to somehow get into the top 10 (on defense). In 2011 we were in this same position and I think we finished eighth that year in defense. I don’t know if we’re going to be able to do that, but we have to do everything possible to move in the direction of becoming a better defensive team.”

Cheap Maxi Kleber Jersey, who has been a versatile defender in his first three seasons with the Mavericks, said it comes down to one thing.

“Communication is very important,” he said. “Most of the mistakes we had last year I think came out of bad communication and we got to improve in that area a lot.”

Johnson recovering: The Mavericks have had three full days of full-team workouts.

The first two days were mostly five-on-zero shell drills, technique days, conditioning and getting the newcomers up to speed.

Sunday did include a spirited scrimmage, Carlisle said, and things are heading in a positive direction.

Apart from Kristaps Porzingis, only one Maverick has been held out of workouts – new center James Johnson.

Cheap James Johnson Jersey had a slight knee issue on something that happened back in October,” Carlisle said. “He had an MCL (medial collateral ligament) strain in his knee and so he’s not doing anything live yet but he’s gone through all the technique stuff and I think he’s on track to be involved in live activity come Tuesday or Wednesday. All in all, three positive days.”

Porzingis update: Carlisle, along with visual updates from Porzingis on Instagram, indicated that the 7-3 center is progressing well from his knee surgery.

“He’s continuing with his rehab in a very positive trajectory,” Carlisle said. “He’s doing some shooting out on the floor as everybody has seen on Instagram. He’s doing some light running on the treadmill. He’s progressing without issue to this point, which is great.”
