5 eye-popping stats from Mavs-Clippers epic Game 7

Clippers, Mavericks, Game 7, Luka Doncic, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris Sr.

The Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers treated basketball fans to a wildly entertaining series and the first Game 7 of the 2021 NBA Playoffs. Surprisingly, the Clippers got the victory and bucked the trend of the road team winning the first six games of the series. While Luka Doncic was phenomenal once again, the Clippers’ firepower proved too much for Dallas.

However, Game 7 was far from full of interesting nuggets and stats as both teams put up incredible performances with their respective seasons on the line, and here are five unreal, hard-to-believe stats from a classic Game 7 in Los Angeles.

First, it’s Luka Doncic, who is somehow tearing the league apart at such a young age.

He was unstoppable and played all but four minutes in Game 7, at far less than 100 percent. It didn’t there though, we will get to more later from him.

Then Kawhi Leonard channeled his inner-Mamba Mentality by putting his name next to Kobe Bryant’s with an insane stat line of his own. 

Leonard was unreal and had an epic performance in Game 6 to force a Game 7 as the Clippers will advance to face the top-seeded Utah Jazz in the second round.

Then it was the Clippers as a whole who shot lights out, led by Marcus Morris Sr. who had a huge outing in Game 7.

Morris Sr. had seven three of his own to contribute 23 points, just five short of Leonard’s team-high 28 on the afternoon.

The last two are– of course– from Luka Doncic, and this won’t be the last time we have an insane stat from the young All-Star guard in Dallas.

All in all, both the Clippers and the Mavs played well throughout the entirety of the series and provided everybody with must-watch TV in some epic battles back and forth and Game 7 was no exception. The Mavs and Luka Doncic will go home, and the Clippers will try to avenge their collapse from last season and make an NBA Finals trip.
