LOS ANGELES, Calif. Derek Carr Jersey . - The Clippers have been playing with big leads in their last two games and not blowing them.They cruised past the Dallas Mavericks 120-100 Saturday for their sixth win in eight games and second in a row, getting a boost of confidence from their ability to impose their will, just as they did in beating the Lakers by 25 points.Were playing a lot more instinctively, running and getting rebounds, said Chris Paul, who had 17 points and 13 assists. Even if other teams score, were pushing the pace. Thats a really good team we beat and proved what were capable of.Blake Griffin scored 22 points, Jamal Crawford added 19 points, Matt Barnes 18, J.J. Redick 16, and DeAndre Jordan had 13 points and 15 rebounds in the Clippers eighth win in their last 11 games against the Mavericks.I dont know what it says, but I like it, Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers said. Offensively, we never turned it off. We played downhill the entire game.Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points and Monta Ellis had 15 of his 23 in the first half for Dallas, which had its three-game road winning streak snapped. Rajon Rondo was held to two points and eight assists in 27 minutes after going scoreless in the first half.I got into the paint when I wanted to and made some plays, but I wasnt able to finish as good as Im used to, Rondo said. Ive been working on my shot and my touch around the rim. I missed a couple that I can make in my sleep.Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle was ejected midway through the third after picking up his second technical for arguing a foul on Tyson Chandler.I obviously disagreed with some calls and it led to that, Carlisle said. Whether or not it was really merited is something thats got to be discussed in another discussion.The game was officiated by two referees after 63-year-old Joe Crawford left in the second quarter with a right knee injury. Rivers helped Crawford to the Clippers bench before the veteran ref walked off under his own power.I instructed our guys you can get away with more now. Only four eyes on you, Rivers joked.Rondo saw Crawfords departure as a turning point after the Clippers closed out the first half strongly.We just lost our composure a little bit and got into it with the refs, Rondo said. But I wouldnt blame it on the refs at all.Nowitzki agreed, saying, Theres tons of plays and a lot of stuff happening out there. I actually thought those two guys did a good job. We sure cant hang this one on the refs. We talk about it all the time that we have to keep our poise, especially in a tough environment on the road.Jamal Crawford hammered the Mavs from long distance in the fourth, making three 3-pointers sandwiched around one by Jordan Farmar before Dallas pulled the last of its starters. The Clippers made 13 3-pointers, three over their average coming in, which is a team record for most treys at this point of the season.The Mavs had won six of their previous seven but they narrowly avoided their worst loss of the season when reserves Dwight Powell and Charlie Villanueva made some late 3-pointers.The last six games between the teams had been decided by seven points or less, but the Clippers put the game away in the third when they built a 20-point lead. They opened on a 15-2 spurt, including the first nine points of the quarter, to go up 70-50. Griffin had six and fed Jordan for an alley-oop dunk.Dallas answered by outscoring the Clippers 16-8 to pull to 78-66 on nine points by Nowitzki. Carlisle got ejected during that spurt.TIP-INSMavericks: They lost back-to-back games for the third time this season. ... It was Carlisles first ejection of the season. ... Ellis was the only Mavs player in double figures in the first half.Clippers: C Spencer Hawes basket to open the fourth gave him 5,000 points in his 528th career game. His uncle Steve Hawes reached that mark in 520 games. ... Griffin had 27 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and three steals in under 31 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday, making him one of three players since 1963-64 to reach those totals in that time or less, joining Paul Pierce and Russell Westbrook.TARPLEY REMEMBEREDRivers said what he would remember most about the late Roy Tarpley was how great he could have been. The former Mavericks centre whose NBA career was cut short by drug abuse died Friday at 50.Sad in a lot of ways, said Rivers, whose own playing career intersected with Tarpleys. I remember when he was healthy and straight, the Mavs were the best team in the NBA with Mark Aguirre and Derek Harper for that little stretch. When he went off, they struggled.Carlisle was another contemporary of Tarpleys.Tarpley was a great young player in the league and hes one of the better players in Mavericks history, Carlisle said. He was good on the inside and he was powerful. Back then, guys like him werent shooting threes, but he was shooting 18-foot shots very well and he was probably an early prototype of what was to come.UP NEXTMavericks: At Sacramento on Tuesday night.Clippers: Host Miami on Sunday. Rodney Hudson Jersey .J. -- Freshman Eli Carter scored a career-high 31 points and hit the go-ahead basket in the second overtime as Rutgers rallied to stun No. Jared Cook Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. .com) - Carmelo Anthony tallied 31 points to help the New York Knicks continue their improved play of late with a 100-92 victory over a short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder squad.OAKLAND, Calif. - Sean Lee made an immediate impact in his return to the field for the Dallas Cowboys defence. Lees sack on the opening drive forced a turnover that led to a Dallas score before special teams blunders doomed the Cowboys in a 19-17 preseason loss to the Oakland Raiders on Friday night. "Hes just around the football a lot," coach Jason Garrett said. "Hes a very instinctive guy. He studies so hard, but I just think he has a feel and a nose for the football. Hes always around it, hes always making tackles." Lee flattened Matt Flynn on a delayed blitz for a sack fumble in his first game back from a toe injury that sidelined him for the final 10 games a year ago. The Cowboys are counting on Lees return to help a revamped defence under new co-ordinator Monte Kiffin rebound from a disappointing end to the 2012 season. Kiffin switched Dallas from a three-man front to a four-man line with star pass rusher DeMarcus Ware moving from stand-up linebacker to rush end. Wares presence helped lead to Lees big play. "I came on a blitz, came free and I saw the quarterback and was able to get a good hit on him," Lee said. "Thats nice, not playing for a while and having a nice free hit on the quarterback. With DeMarcus hes a guy you can stick him in on that and he kind of takes a couples guys with him. So it was nice to come free and get a hit like that." After forcing just 16 turnovers under fired co-ordinator Rob Ryan last year, the Cowboys have been very opportunistic so far this preseason by forcing four turnovers in the first two games, including rookie J.J. Wilcoxs end zone interception against Terrelle Pryor. But the Raiders got a 30-yard touchdown pass from undrafted rookie Matt McGloin to fellow rookie Brice Butler and a go-ahead field goal from Eddy Carmona in the fourth quarter after B.W. Webb fumbled a punt at his 9. It was a rough night for Dallas special teams as the Cowboys had a field goal blocked and allowed a 51-yard kickoff return. "Those are plays that are going to hurt you," Garrett said. "Those arent winning football plays. We got to make sure we correct that." Tony Romo, who sat out last week against Miami after off-season surgery to remove a cyst from his back, completed 6 of 8 passes for 88 yards in his first two series of the preseason. Kyle Orton threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley and rookie Joseph Randle scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter for Dalllas. Keith McGill Jersey. Flynns tenure in Oakland got off to a rough start when he was sacked by an unblocked Lee on his first drive, leading to a fumble that Jason Hatcher recovered for Dallas at the Raiders 16. After a holding penalty, a tipped pass and a sack by rookie Sio Moore on Romos first drive of the preseason, the Cowboys were lucky to get a field goal out of that gift field position when Dan Bailey connected from 38 yards. Both quarterbacks fared far better on their second drives with Flynn converting a pair of third downs on passes to Denarius Moore and Rod Streater to set up a 51-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski. Romo completed 5 of 6 passes for 77 yards before Baileys field goal attempt was blocked by Tyvon Branch. Flynns night was over after going 4 for 5 for 37 yards. "Were making strides," Flynn said. "We still have a lot of work to do. I think that timing, that trust factor is coming. There are definitely things we need to clean up. My job is to get the ball in the hands of the playmakers." Pryor came in and mixed in some electrifying plays with questionable ones. Pryor ran 13 yards on a read option on his first play, delighting the fans who have been partial to the former Ohio State star since he joined the Raiders in the supplemental draft two years ago. Pryor also showed poise in the pocket, throwing an 18-yard screen to Jamize Olawale and converting a third-and-8 with a 9-yard pass to Andre Holmes. But those promising plays were erased when he rolled out on third-and-4 from the 6 and threw late across his body when he had room to run and was intercepted by Wilcox in the end zone. "It was just me being greedy," Pryor said. "I looked at the pictures and I could have ran it easy. That was just me being greedy." Pryor bounced back after Orton completed all six passes on an 80-yard touchdown drive and completed three passes for 54 yards in the final minute to set up a field goal by Janikowski. "Hes really a dual threat," Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. "He can run the football and I thought he threw the ball pretty well at times tonight. Thats one of the things we want to try to use, that skill set, and hopefully it will be another dimension to our offence." NOTES: Beasley left the game in the second half with a foot injury. X-rays were negative. ... Raiders RB Darren McFadden had three carries for 5 yards and caught an 8-yard pass in his brief appearance.
