DALLAS (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki scored a season-high 33 points, including the first eight in overtime, and the Dallas Mavericks beat 1 of the top four teams in the Western Conference for the first time this season with a 109-102 victory against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night.

Chris Paul also had a season-high 33 for the Clippers.

The Mavericks improved to 1-11 against the top four teams in the West and pulled within a game of the Lakers for the final playoff spot.

Nowitzki put Dallas ahead for good at 101-100 on a jumper, and the Clippers went 4 minutes without a field goal in overtime.

The game went to overtime after a wild final 5 seconds in regulation starting with a go-ahead layup by Paul. O.J. Mayo answered when he snuck the ball up from behind the backboard to tie the score at 97-all with 0.6 seconds left.
