Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- Jason Terry gave the Dallas Mavericks the burst of energy they needed to pull away from the reeling Los Angeles Clippers. Terry scored 11 of his 15 points in the second half as the Mavericks rallied from an eight-point halftime deficit to post a 99-77 victory over the Clippers, who have lost four games in a row and eight of their last nine on the road. "We had to get some energy," Terry said. "We didn't have any energy in the first half. Coming out at halftime, I knew we had to pick it up. We had play Mavericks basketball and that's getting up, running and shooting." Prior to the game, Dallas coach Don Nelson underwent successful shoulder surgery that will keep him away from the team for at least two weeks. Assistant Avery Johnson, whom Nelson tabbed as his eventual replacement, will call the shots until Nelson returns. Known for his defensive abilities as a player, Johnson likely had a lot to say in the locker room after the Clippers shot 45 percent (19-of-42) and grabbed 12 offensive rebounds in the first half to take a 48-40 lead. "We had to pay attention to their offensive rebounds," Terry said. "Their second shots were killing us. Avery readjusted us at halftime. He got us focused and we didn't give up many second shots after that." "The defense we played in the second half is the type of defense I know this team can play," Johnson said. "We played really good defense in the second half." Los Angeles went cold in the second half, shooting just 24 percent, and Dallas took control with a 14-4 run late in the third quarter. "We had a combination of things go against us," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "What happens is a team like that blows up on you. We came out and missed some easy shots, made a couple of turnovers, missed a couple of assignments and they blow (the lead) up to 15 in a heartbeat." Terry started the spurt with a layup to cut the deficit to 62-61 with 3:47 left in the period. Michael Finley and Corey Maggette traded buckets until Terry's 3-pointer put the Mavericks ahead, 66-64. "Once we got the ball in the open court, a lot of good things happened for us," Dallas guard Jerry Stackhouse said. "When we get the ball off of that backboard and get that thrust, we're really difficult to deal with. That's the way we want to play, and we got that in the second half." After Elton Brand made a pair of free throws, Terry gave Dallas the lead for good with a short jumper. Dirk Nowitzki hit a 3-pointer and Stackhouse capped the burst with a dunk to open a 73-66 advantage with 39 seconds remaining. "It turned around quickly," Brand said. "We were down two, I missed an easy shot, they came down and hit a three and it's five points. They jump on you fast." Despite playing their fifth game in seven days, the Clippers did not make any excuses for their poor second-half performance. "You have to give Dallas a lot of credit," Brand said. "They haven't lost only 12 games for nothing. They are a good team. We may have run out of gas a little bit, but you have to give a team like that the credit." Brand collected 24 points and 14 rebounds and Bobby Simmons added 16 and 12 for the Clippers, who made just two baskets and scored nine points in the fourth quarter - the lowest output in a quarter by any Mavericks opponent this season. "It was defense," Simmons said. "If they don't defend, then we don't make turnovers. I think we tried to make plays a little too fast. (In the first half), we let it happen as far as letting guys get into good position (to score)." Nowitzki scored 28 points and Josh Howard added 13 on 6-of-6 shooting for Dallas, which completed a perfect three-game homestand.
