Mavericks Vs. Clippers Final Score: Chauncey Billups Hits Game-Winner, 91-89

After seeing a six-point lead disappear in just about 30 seconds, the Los Angeles Clippers faced a one-point deficit with just five seconds to go. And as the Clippers tried to inbound the ball, Mo Williams nearly booted it away, sparking another lengthy review in a final minute that took closer to 10, thanks to the officials' frequent trip to the monitor. When it was all over, though, the Clippers maintained possession, then watched as Chauncey Billups buried a three to put them back on top with only a second to go.

Still, Dallas had a shot to tie on the ensuing possession, inbounding the ball from the front-court, in prime lob range. However, Los Angeles read it well, and prevented the last-second heave at the rim, hanging on for a 91-89 win.
