After 3: Mavs 71, Clippers 71

LOS ANGELES -- The Dallas Mavericks rallied from a nine-point deficit after the Los Angeles Clippers opened the third quarter with a 15-6 run in the opening six minutes.

Ian Mahinmi had a couple of late buckets to tie the score. Jason Kidd snapped a 3-point drought with a triple with 1:30 to go to slice the deficit to one.

Dirk Nowitzki didn't score in the third and has 10 points to match Shawn Marion and Mahinmi as the team high.

Now, it's up to will. Can Dallas, which did not play last night, outlast a Clippers team on its third game in three nights?
