Dirk Nowitzki led all players with 25 points, and Monta Ellis scored 23 in a losing effort.

The game was tied 45-45 with three minutes remaining in the first half. From there, the Clippers went on a 25-5 run and never looked back as the Mavericks defense couldn't get stops.

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle was ejected after picking up two technical fouls in the third quarter. Referee Joey Crawford also exited the game after pulling up lame with a knee injury, leaving two refs to work the remainder of the game. 

The Clippers (25-12) have another afternoon date on Sunday with the Miami Heat. The Mavs (26-12) have off until Tuesday when they visit the Sacramento Kings.
