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.
