Clippers Top Mavs 94-75 For 6th Consecutive Win
DALLAS (AP) – Randy Foye had 28 points with a career-high eight 3-pointers and the Los Angeles Clippers won their sixth consecutive game, 94-75 over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night for their longest winning streak in two decades.
Blake Griffin had 15 points and 16 rebounds for the Clippers, who last won six in a row in March 1992. Griffin had scored 20 points in each of the previous six games.
After Brandon Wright’s tip-in capped an 8-0 run for the Mavericks to get within 76-62 with about 7 1/2 minutes left, Foye responded with a 3-pointer. Jason Terry then made another basket for Dallas, only to have Foy made another 3, his eighth to match the franchise record.
Foye was 10-of-19 shooting, including 8 of 15 on 3s.
Quentin Richardson made 8 of 11 3-pointers while scoring 36 points for the Clippers at Boston on Feb. 4, 2004.
Dirk Nowitzki led Dallas with 19 points.
