Mavs Pull Away From Gordon-Less Clippers 112-105
DALLAS (AP) – Jason Terry scored a season-high 28 points and J.J. Barea added 25, lifting the Dallas Mavericks to a 112-105 victory over the suddenly Eric Gordon-less Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night.
The performance by the reserve guards helped Dallas erase an early 15-point deficit. The Mavs turned things around with a 23-6 spurt in the third quarter, then a 14-0 run in the fourth quarter.
The Clippers announced during the first half that a wrist injury will sideline Gordon for at least three weeks. He’s their leading scorer at 24.1 point, eighth-best in the NBA.
Tyson Chandler had a season-high 21 points and Dirk Nowitzki added 20 for the Mavericks, who’ve won three of four since a six-game losing streak.
