Must-See NBA Games This Week

Los Angeles Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks

Monday, March 15 at 9 ET, NBA League Pass and Fox Sports

Luka Dončić and the Dallas Mavericks are in the middle of a race for a playoff berth. The Los Angeles Clippers will be without Patrick Beverly, so the Dallas Mavericks will have a chance to gain ground in the Western Conference standings. LA is also playing on the second leg of a back-to-back, so both Paul George and Kawhi Leonard could be rest candidates. The most intriguing part of this matchup is that the two teams will face off again Wednesday on ESPN.

Will Luka have another triple double to keep moving up the all-time list?

Utah Jazz vs Boston Celtics

Tuesday, March 16 at 7:30 ET, TNT

After a stellar start to the season, the Utah Jazz have gone 5-5 over their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics are winners of five of their last six games. Both teams each have two All-Stars on their rosters (Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell for the Jazz and Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown for the Celtics) and are in need of a statement win to begin the post-All-Star Break stretch.

Charlotte Hornets vs Denver Nuggets

Wednesday, March 17, 9 ET, NBA League Pass

LaMelo Ball has the Charlotte Hornets in the NBA playoffs for the first time since 2015-16. Meanwhile, the Denver Nuggets are 7-3 over their last 10 games, and Nikola Jokić is continuing to flirt with averaging a triple-double in his NBA MVP campaign. Both teams need a win to keep pace in the their respective conferences.
