After 1: Clippers 31, Mavs 27
By Jeff Caplan
LOS ANGELES -- Dallas Mavericks, meet Mo Williams. The formerly injured Los Angeles Clippers guard subbed in and got down, scoring 11 points in five minutes, burying all five of his shots. He led the Clippers back from a 22-16 deficit with about four minutes to go.
The Mavs, meanwhile, are right where they usually are, shooting 40.7 percent from the floor. The good news for them is that they're 3-of-6 from the 3-point line (although Jason Kidd is now 0-10 on 3s in L.A).
Chauncey Billups had the hot hand to start the quarter. He has 10 points, so that's 21 for the two guards not named CP3. L.A. shot 56 percent.
