LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jamal Crawford scored 22 points and the Los Angeles Clippers beat Dallas 98-91 on Sunday, snapping the Mavericks' six-game winning streak and preventing them from clinching a playoff berth.

J.J. Redick added 20 points and Blake Griffin had 17 points and 11 rebounds in his best game since returning a week ago from a three-month absence to help the playoff-bound Clippers win their fifth in a row.

Raymond Felton led Dallas with 21 points - two off his season high - off the bench. Deron Williams added 15 points and Dirk Nowitzki 14.

The loss kept the Mavs (41-39) in seventh place in the Western Conference, a game behind Memphis with two games to play. Dallas needs either a victory or a Houston loss to clinch a playoff berth for the 15th time in 16 years. The Rockets beat the Lakers 130-110 on Sunday.
