NBA scores: Mavericks fall to the Clippers

The Mavs have played just once this week, losing yesterday to the Clippers.


Double-doubles from Chris Paul and Blake Griffin helped propel the Los Angeles Clippers to a win over the Dallas Mavericks, 112-90 in Southern California on Thursday.

Griffin put away 19 points and 13 rebounds while Paul picked up 14 points and 13 dimes in the Clippers' win over the Mavericks. Jamal Crawford came off the bench and pitched in 20 points for the Clippers as well. The win gives the Clippers their fourth victory in a row after dropping four straight, their longest losing streak of the season.

Vince Carter came off the bench to lead the Mavericks with 16 points in the losing effort. Four other players finished in double figures, including Derek Fisher with 15 points and Chris Kaman with 14 points.

The Mavericks will try to get back on track tonight against the Phoenix Suns in Arizona before heading just a little ways from home to play the Houston Rockets.
