Recap


CLIPPERS 94, MAVERICKS 75: Randy Foye buried a career-best eight 3-pointers and scored a season-high 28 points as visiting Los Angeles matched its longest winning streak in 20 years.

Blake Griffin added 15 points and 16 rebounds to help the Clippers win six games in a row for the first time since March 18-31, 1992.

Foye scored 22 points in the second half, including six 3-pointers, as Los Angeles pulled within one game of the Pacific Division-leading Lakers and snapped a 10-game losing streak in Dallas dating to April 19, 2006.

Dirk Nowitzki had 19 points and was the only starter in double figures for the Mavericks, who played without starting point guard Jason Kidd (strained right groin). The loss dropped Dallas into sixth place in the West.

The Clippers took control in the second quarter as reserve Nick Young scored seven straight points in an 11-2 run for a 16-point lead en route to a  47-33 halftime edge.

Foye made sure there would be no comeback, connecting from behind the arc four times in the third quarter, including back-to-back 3-pointers that pushed the lead to 62-41.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Griffin had his streak of 20-point games snapped at six but registered his fifth double-double in seven contests. ... Kidd is expected to miss at least four games. The 39-year-old point guard also missed four games in both February (calf) and January (back). Forward Lamar Odom also missed the game because of a stomach illness. ... Foye's previous career high for 3-pointers was six
