(DALLAS) — The Clippers handed the Mavericks (30-24) a 94-75 home loss on Monday night.
Foye led his team in scoring with 28 points.
“A win like this shows that we’re growing,” Foye said. “It means a lot to play this well and beat the champs.”
Blake Griffin added 15 and Chris Paul had eight points and 10 assists. The loss for the Mavericks dropped them to sixth in the Western Conference.
“It’s a good game because we need wins and it helps us in the West standings,” Griffin said. “At the same time, just because we won like this doesn’t mean that if we had to come back it would be a rout. They’re a tough team, they’re a veteran team, they’re missing some guys, so we’ve just got to keep on working and keep on plugging.”
