Throw Back Thursday: Clippers at Bearded Mavericks


We welcome back the beards today for Throw Back Thursday.

This is your chance to remember the likes of O.J Mayo, Darren Collison, Mike James, and Elton Brand.

Last season the Los Angeles Clippers were in town facing the Dallas Mavericks on March 26, 2013.

Fighting for a playoff spot and to get back to .500, the Mavericks would win 109-102 in overtime.

Dirk Nowitzki would lead the way with 33 points and 9 rebounds for the Mavericks. Mayo would finish with just 11 points but scored the game tying basket to force overtime for the Mavericks.

Excluding Nowitzki, Vince Carter, Jae Crowder, Brandan Wright, Shawn Marion, and Bernard James were the only active Mavericks who are currently on this season’s team.

Chris Paul would finish with 33 points as well to go along with only 5 assists. Blake Griffin would finish with just 14 points and a last second miraculous shot that was called off due to him pushing off Nowitzki.

Former Mavericks Lamar Odom (greeted with boos), Ryan Hollins and Caron Butler were on last season’s Clippers.
