Wild end to regulation in Mavericks win over Clippers (VIDEO)

Mar 27, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

These were the final three plays of regulation from a dramatic game:

First Chris Paul drives around 6’7″ Shawn Marion then elevating and going over 6’8″ Elton Brand, off the glass and in for a bucket that put the Clippers up two. Paul scored the last 10 points for the Clippers in regulation, he was a beast (and finished with 33).

Then O.J. Mayo answered, going baseline on a drive, getting trapped, being patient, then overpowering Paul then hitting a lay-up coming from behind the backboard. It was a smart, patient play by Mayo.

Then comes the wildest play of them all — Matt Barnes inbounds after the Mayo make and throws the ball 80 feet to Blake Griffin who hits an incredible falling bucket to win the… wait, Griffin is called for the push-off. No basket and overtime. There was contact but Nowitzki sold that push and the ref was buying.

    I thought it looked like Mayo traveled in real time, and even more so after watching the replay. Still a great play by him to stay with it and a great game. Clips should have kept going to CP3 in OT instead of jacking up 3s. Everyone’s shot was off except CP3, who was hitting everything.

    Blake did push off. But if they were in La it wouldn’t have been called. Either way crazy finish too a great game.!!!
