DALLAS (AP) — JJ Barea had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Los Angeles Clippers 108-82 on Saturday for coach Rick Carlisle’s 700th career win.
Dallas went 16 for 35 from 3-point range and had five players score in double figures. Dirk Nowitzki went 5 for 5 from the long range on his way to 16 points, and reserve Devin Harris finished with 15 points.
Carlisle became the 18th coach in NBA history with at least 700 wins. Greg Popovich (1,164) and Doc Rivers (812) are the only other active coaches to make it to the milestone.
The Mavericks (6-17) scored the first eight points and never trailed while halting a two-game losing streak.
DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and 17 rebounds for the Clippers (8-13), who have dropped two in a row after winning three straight.
