The Mavs lost in a lackluster Game 1 of the first round of the NBA playoffs against the L.A. Clippers.

How it happened: The Mavs had their worst offensive first half in a playoff game in franchise history, trailing 56-30 at halftime, per ESPN.

  • The Clippers maintained a double-digit lead throughout the second half.
  • But, Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving did score 33 and 31 points, respectively.

What's next: The Mavs play Game 2 tomorrow night in L.A.

  • Tonight, the Stars have home-ice advantage in their first playoff game against the reigning Stanley Cup champs, the Vegas Golden Knights, at 8:30pm at the American Airlines Center.
