Los Angeles
Dallas

[DALLAS] — The Dallas Mavericks played host to the Los Angeles Clippers last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 97 to 95 Mavs victory. The win bumps Dallas's record up to 31-40 on the season, while the loss drags Los Angeles's down to 43-30. Though a win's a win and Mavericks fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was DeAndre Jordan leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 14 points, 18 rebounds, 1 assists, 2 blocks and 0 steals in 35 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Unfortunately for Jordan, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Mavericks. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Los Angeles back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Mavericks in the victory was Nerlens Noel and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Jordan, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Noel posted 8 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists in the win.

Dallas's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Clippers, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Mavs will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Mavs will be a date with the Toronto Raptors while the visiting Clippers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Utah Jazz.
