After The Fact: JJ Barea Owns the Clippers, Mavs win 106-100

New, comments

You read the headline right. Jose Barea scored 22 points in 21 minutes in the Mavericks' win over the Clippers.

Jason Terry had an awful shooting night but hit a pair of free throws to cushion the lead as LA fought back in the final moments.

Dirk Nowitzki finished with 24 points and six rebounds, but he also ended his free throw streak at 74, missing two from the line tonight.

Jason Kidd was a throwback version of himself, drawing charges, hitting shots, and throwing himself all over the court. He finished with 5 points and a stellar 10 assists.

After a few games full of terrible turnovers, the Mavericks managed to limit themselves to just 11 tonight. They also had 11 steals. And JJ Barea's number is 11. Coincidence? Most likely.

Tyson Chandler and Brendan Haywood hit a combined total of no free throws. Seriously. They were 0-7 from the line.
