Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Elton Brand did not let the Los Angeles Clippers blow another halftime lead against the Dallas Mavericks. Brand scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half as the Clippers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 97-87 victory over the Mavericks. Los Angeles held a six-point advantage at the break when the teams met Thursday, but Dallas outscored the Clippers, 57-29, over the final two quarters and coasted to an easy 99-77 victory. "We thought we had Dallas on their home court," said Brand, who also grabbed 12 rebounds. "We were very confident coming into tonight's game, and tonight we hit our shots, made our free throws and didn't have lapses in the end." In this one, Bobby Simmons scored 15 of his 21 points in the first half as Los Angeles seized a 53-38 edge at the break. "With a team like that you have to try to knock them back on their heels," said Dallas swingman Jerry Stackhouse, who started in place of injured forward Josh Howard. "When they got a little bit of a lead you could just see their confidence just start to show. Once you've built up that kind of energy it becomes hard to stop." After the Mavericks threatened in the fourth quarter, Brand provided all the offense in a 10-6 spurt that gave Los Angeles an 89-72 lead with just under five minutes remaining. "You have to give credit to the Clippers," Mavericks acting coach Avery Johnson said. "They played like a team that was desperate to win a game. They were coming off a bad road trip and Brand hit a big shot when we were making a run. (It was) a very disappointing loss for us." Dallas entered the game with the NBA's top 3-point defense, holding its opponents to 31 percent shooting from the arc, but could not stop Rick Brunson and Marko Jaric, who combined to hit 6-of-12 3-pointers. "Defensively we made mistakes that allowed them to get open and they took advantage of it," Stackhouse said. "We had some breakdowns defensively and they moved the ball around and hit the open guy." Brand credited Simmons' and Brunson's hot shooting for his big second half. "They started off with a zone," Brand said. "They were collapsing and double-teaming me, especially in the post. But Bobby hit some nice shots and Rick hit some big shots. Everyone contributed." Jaric, who was activated from the injured list prior to the game, hit two big 3-pointers in a 10-0 run early in the second period that gave the Clippers a 33-23 lead. "That just shows our maturity," Brunson said. "In the past we would sometimes give up the lead, but we didn't cave in this time. They made a run at us in the third quarter, but we held them back and kept the lead." Dirk Nowitzki had 22 points and 11 rebounds for Dallas, which had its five-game winning streak snapped. Johnson said that the Mavericks did not overlook the struggling Clippers, but did acknowledge that fatigue may have been a factor for his team, which was playing its fourth game in five days. "We're not that good to take anybody lightly," Johnson said. "We're not on that level yet. We've got to play every night. There are no easy wins for our basketball team. "This is our fourth game in 4 1/2 days. This is the first back-to-back game where you play in Texas and then you come out to California for a game the next night."
