The Clippers have had some recent success against the Dallas Mavericks, just not in Dallas.
L.A. defeated the Mavericks three out of the last four times the two teams have played.
But the Clippers have lost 11 out of their last 12 games in Dallas.
And as it turns out, the first meeting between the Clippers and Mavericks this season is at American Airlines Center tonight.
The Mavericks are good at home again this year, with an 11-4 record.
As has been noted, the Clippers haven't been very good away from Staples Center, having just an 8-9 record.
The Mavericks return home having won three consecutive games on the road.
