Dallas Mavericks defeat LA Clippers 117-94. Without Baron Davis, Eric Gordon and Drew Gordon, the Clippers had no shot. Suffering their 17th losing season in 18 seasons, the Clippers trailed by 37 points early in the fourth quarter before the battle of scrubs made a dent into the deficit to make the outcome appear a little more respectable. DeAndre Jordan had a double-double for the Clips with 10 points and 13 assists, while Steve Blake just missed a double-double with nine points and 13 assists. As for the Mavericks whom the Lakers could face in the Western Conference Finals, they have won four straight and seven of nine down the stretch.
