The Los Angeles Clippers have made a habit of extinguishing long losing streaks this season, and Monday night in Dallas was no different as the Clippers demolished the Mavericks 94-75 at American Airlines Center in Texas. The win for the Clippers was their first victory in Dallas since April 19, 2006, snapping a 10-game road losing streak to the Mavericks.
Randy Foye hit a franchise-record-tying eight three-pointers en route to a game-high 28 points in the win. Foye made eight of 15 from beyond the arc and 10 of 19 field goals overall for the Clippers, who shot 47% for the game. Blake Griffin had 15 points and 16 rebounds.
The Clippers have now won six straight games, their longest such streak since winning six straight games from March 18-31, 1992. The win also gives the Clippers the season series win over Dallas, two games to one, which could become important if the two remain as the No. 4 and No. 5 seeds. If the two teams end up tied for the No. 4 seed, they would play each other in the opening round with the Clippers having home court advantage.
Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks with 19 points, while Jason Terry added 15 points off the bench.
The Clippers, who are one game out of first place in the Pacific Division, host the division-leading Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night at Staples Center.
