The Clippers had a big contribution from their bench, with Lou Williams scoring 26 points and dishing out eight assists.

Dallas rookie Luka Doncic scored a career-high 32 points as the Mavericks fell to a 125-121 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

"I was sick of him", Rivers said of the Slovenian, as per Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times. "It's good to get a win".

Maxi Kieber's jumper put the Mavericks up 109-104 with 5:14 remaining before the Clippers regained control with a 15-2 run. Dallas made 10 of 28 (35.7 percent) from beyond the arc.

"It was a weird thing, but I think it was far weirder on the outside of the room than on the inside of the room", Rivers said Thursday night as he recollected the scene. "We laugh with each other on and off the floor, and I learn a lot from Trez as well". "It's not necessarily you are going to go to him but he is going to be involved".

DeAndre Jordan was returning to LA as a Maverick after spending his first ten seasons in the league with the Clippers. An very bad lot (9 of 13).

The Clippers closed the first quarter on a 16-7 run to take a 30-27 lead after trailing by as many as seven points midway through the opening period. This season, he's averaging 11 points and 13.8 rebounds in 31.2 minutes per game. Tobias led the team with 39 points on 15 of 22 shooting, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander added 24 points on nine of 15 shooting while Danilo Gallinari chipped in with 22 points.

Clippers: Los Angeles had its second-best shooting game of the season, making 56.6 percent from the field (47 of 83). Head coach Doc Rivers even implied that he should be the first player in franchise history to have his number retired.

Jordan had at least 20 rebounds for the fifth time this season, with four of those coming in December. Jordan, who opted out of his contract with the Clippers during the offseason and signed a one-year deal with Dallas, holds the Clippers' record for most games played, field goal percentage, rebounds and blocked shots.
