The scores of Clippers fans who filed into the aisles and walked out of Staples Center with about five minutes left Wednesday night will regret it for a while. Their decision certainly made sense at the time. Brandan Wright was preparing to step to the free-throw line to give the Dallas Mavericks a 17-point lead in a game that seemed firmly in their grasp. The Clippers took things from there, rallying for a 129-127 victory that served as quite the sendoff for a seven-game, 11-day trip.

DALLAS - The Lakers didn't allow 137 points again. It didn't matter. Their 110-97 loss to the Dallas Mavericks was more like a slow, steady drain that didn't become an obvious conclusion until midway through the fourth quarter Tuesday. Too many times, a Lakers possession looked like this: Dallas steal, Dallas fastbreak, Dallas layup. More mundane but more often, there was also plenty of: Lakers miss, Mavericks rebound. BOX SCORE: Mavericks 110, Lakers 97 Coach Mike D'Antoni reverted to gallows humor when reminded of the woes of the Lakers (14-21)

The Lakers hit the road Tuesday for the second time in this young 2013-14 NBA season. After getting destroyed by the Golden State Warriors on Oct. 30 in their first road test, the Lakers visit the Dallas Mavericks for a 5:30 p.m. Pacific tipoff. The Mavericks have added one of the top scoring guards in the league in Monta Ellis, and Jose Calderon is one of the league's better playmakers.  Unlike last season, Dirk Nowitzki is healthy to start the year. Dallas should in the playoff mix in the Western Conference, certainly a team the Lakers need to beat for their own postseason hopes.

DALLAS - There were so many problems last season for the Lakers, and one was unkind enough to stay awhile, tracking plenty of dirt onto the new carpet. The Lakers couldn't win on the road with Dwight Howard last season and can't do it without him so far. The sample size is small but strong, the Lakers falling meekly to the Dallas Mavericks, 123-104, Tuesday at American Airlines Center. GAME SUMMARY: Mavericks 123, Lakers 104 Pau Gasol and Steve Nash shot poorly, the entire team rebounded lamely and the Lakers trailed by 30 in a road game for the second time in six days.
