Notebook: Mavs 113, Clippers 107


Dan Arritt, for NBA.com
Posted Fri Apr 04, 2014 3:00 AM - Updated Fri Apr 04, 2014 3:00 AM

THE FACT: The Clippers fell to 31-6 at home this season with their first loss at Staples Center since Feb. 16.

THE LEAD: It was pretty clear that a victory meant much more to the Mavericks than it did the Clippers on Thursday night. Dallas, trying to avoid missing the playoffs for the second consecutive season, dodged another fourth-quarter collapse against L.A. and held on for a 113-107 victory, putting them in sole possession of seventh place in the West with six games remaining.

QUOTABLE: "I wasn't worried. I knew we'd be alright."
--Dallas coach Rick Carlisle

THE STAT: Mavericks (45-31) forward Dirk Nowitzki finished with 26 points and 11 rebounds, his third double-double in the last five games after totaling three in the first 69.

TURNING POINT: The Mavericks took their biggest lead of the game at 109-97 on Vince Carter's 16-footer with 2:50 remaining, but nobody was ready to celebrate for Dallas. After all, the Mavericks had already blown two double-digit fourth-quarter leads against the Clippers (54-23) this season. Sure enough, the Clippers scored 10 unanswered points to pull within two with 1:25 left. L.A. had two chances to take the lead, but J.J. Redick missed a 3-pointer from one corner and Darren Collison air-balled one from the other. Nowitzki then nearly travelled after he was trapped near midcourt but the referees huddled up and decided to call a foul. Nowitzki went to the line with 17 seconds left and made both free throws to give the Mavericks a four-point lead, which finally dimmed the lights on the Clippers.

QUOTABLE: "We ran out of miracles."
--Clippers coach Doc Rivers

HOT: Nowitzki was a combined 2-for-17 in the fourth quarter against the Clippers in their three previous meetings this season, all wins by L.A. He put that trend to rest Thursday night, shooting 3-for-5 in the final quarter to finish 10-for-18 overall. Jose Calderon gave Dallas a nice lift early, scoring seven of his 19 points in the first quarter as the Mavericks surged to an early 32-26 advantage. Carter also did well when in the game for Nowitzki, finishing with 16 points off the bench on 4-for-7 from 3-point range.

NOT: A key barometer for the Clippers is how well they shoot from 3-point range. They are 33-1 this season when they make at least nine in a game, including 15-0 at home. But they shot just 6-for-27 against the Mavericks with no player making more than two. Chris Paul shot 1-for-7, Matt Barnes was 1-for-6 and Redick, in his first game back after missing two months with a bulging disc in his lower back, finished 2-for-6, including 1-for-4 in the final quarter.

GOOD MOVE: Coming into the game, Dallas had blown leads against the Clippers that added up to 42 points this season. So when the Clippers cut a 12-point deficit to two in less than two minutes down the stretch, it would have been easy for the Mavericks to crawl into a hole. But they buckled down on the defensive end and forced the Clippers to miss their final four shots, all from long distance. Another blown lead against L.A. might have been tough to bounce back from.

BAD MOVE: After the Mavericks had moved ahead by four on Nowitzki's free throws with 17 seconds left, Paul inbounded the ball to Griffin near midcourt, but Griffin rolled his ankle and stayed on the floor as Collison missed another 3-pointer. Griffin, who battled injuries during the playoffs the last two seasons, seems to be getting run down at the wrong time again. He missed a game earlier in the week with back spasms and now could be dealing with a sore ankle at the worst possible time. It was a tough game all-around for Griffin, who scored 25 points but shot just 9-for-23 from the field.

NOTABLE: Griffin scored 10 points in the first quarter, the 18th time this season he has reached double figures in the opening 12 minutes. ... The Clippers matched their season-low with six turnovers.

UP NEXT: For the Clippers, Sunday vs. L.A. Lakers, Wednesday vs. Oklahoma City, April 12 vs. Sacramento. For the Mavericks, Friday @ L.A. Lakers, Sunday @ Sacramento, Tuesday @ Utah.
