The Mavericks vs Clippers live stream starts at 3:30 p.m. ET / 12:30 p.m. PT today (June 6). It airs ABC and ESPN3, and the latter is available on Sling TV, currently on sale down to $10 for the first month.

The Mavericks vs Clippers live stream is here to close out the first round of the NBA playoffs and end Los Angeles and Dallas's epic series with a win-or-go-home affair. Kawhi and company will try to best Luka and the Mavs in this NBA playoffs live stream.

It’s wild. It’s unheard of. It’s literally never happened before. In the near 75-year history of the NBA the home team has never been winless six games into a playoff series. Until now. Coincidentally the NBA turns 75 on Sunday.

The Clippers avoided elimination Friday by winning Game 6 in Dallas 104-97. Kawhi Leonard was masterful in the win scoring a series-high 45 points on 18-for-25 shooting. Leonard did have help as Reggie Jackson added 25 points and Paul George netted 20 with 13 rebounds.  

While Leonard was going off and helping his team close out Game 6 with 12 fourth quarter points, Luka Doncic was struggling. Though his final stat sheet is impressive, two rebounds shy of a triple-double, his shooting was not. Doncic shot 11-of-24 from the floor which is about normal for him, but making just 2-of-9 from three is well below his normal three point shooting percentage.

Going into Game 7, Luka and company will have to figure out a way to slow down Leonard. “He destroyed us.” Doncic told reporters after Game 6, “he had a hell of a game. That’s what he does”. Kawhi posted a shooting percentage of 72% in Game 6 marking the third time this series he’s shot at least 70% from the floor.  

How to avoid Mavericks vs Clippers blackouts with a VPN

If you've had to leave your own "bubble" -- or you've been hit by a dreaded local blackout -- and you can't watch Mavericks vs Clippers live streams on cable, you're not out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well. Here are our top picks.

In the U.S. Mavericks vs Clippers airs on ABC and ESPN3, tipping off at 3:30 p.m. ET.

If you've already cut the cord and don't have a cable package, you'll be able to get this game on Sling TV and FuboTV. But you will probably want to go with Sling, as while ESPN and TNT (the other big NBA channel) are both included in the Sling Orange package, which costs $35 — TNT isn't on Fubo.

Both are two of the picks on our best streaming services list, but you might be annoyed to learn Sling doesn't have ABC (which you can get with one of the best TV antennas). That said, ESPN3 is simulcasting ABC NBA playoff games, so you'll be good with Sling.

Sling TV: You can get ESPN and TNT in the Sling Orange package. The 30-plus channels in the lineup include AMC, CNN, Food Network, AMC, Comedy Central, HGTV and many more.View Deal

Fubo.TV: If you love sports, you probably want to check out Fubo.TV. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front. The channel lineup includes ESPN, as well as other top networks like Bravo, FX, MTV and USA. Plus, it's got NBA TV (in the $5.99 fubo Extra add-on), which will have other playoff games.View Deal
