Mavs-Clippers stat stuffers: Lamar Odom contributing in L.A.
*The Mavericks are 2-12 over their last 14 games dating to December 12. Thats the league's second-worst record in that stretch behind Washington's 2-13 mark in the same span.
*The Clippers, at 27-8, sport the league's best overall record. The furthest into a season that the Clippers previously had the league's best record was a mere five games, on three occasions: 1985-86 (5-0), 1991-92 (4-1) and 2006-07 (4-1).
*Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle has trotted out a league-leading 15 different starting lineups this season. The Clippers, by contrast, have used only three, tying them with Golden State for the third-fewest in the league. Oklahoma City has started the same fivesome in every game this season, while Detroit has used just two different starting lineups.
*Ex-Mav Lamar Odom averaged just 13 minutes and 1.6 points in his first 15 games after rejoining the Clippers in the offseason. Odom has since averaged 22.5 minutes and 4.9 points in 20 games since December 1.
*Mavs forward Elton Brand averaged 20.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game in his seven seasons with the Clippers from 2001-02 through 2007-08. Only three other players in franchise history have career averages of 20-and-10 or better in their time with the club: Bob McAdoo for the Buffalo Braves (28.2 ppg and 12,7 rpg) Terry Cummings for the San Diego Clippers (23.3 ppg and 10.1 rpg) and Blake Griffin (20.9 ppg and 11.0 rpg).
