LOS ANGELES -- Dirk Nowitzki finished up his usual pre-game workout and will play tonight while battling a cold. On the other side, Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul will sit out his third consecutive game with a hamstring injury.
The Clippers are playing their third game in as many nights and are coming off a blowout loss at Utah on Tuesday night. The Mavs had Tuesday off after suffering a disappointing loss to the Lakers on Monday night. Derek Fisher hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with three seconds to play.
