    DALLAS. — Kawhi Leonard scored 36 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers held off the Dallas Mavericks 110-107 on Tuesday night.

    Leonard scored at least 30 points for the sixth straight game. Landry Shamet added 18 points and Lou Williams had 16 off the bench for the Clippers. Montrezl Harrell scored all 12 of his points in the second half.

    Luka Doncic had 36 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for the Mavericks, who had their four-game winning streak snapped. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 13 points, while former Clipper Boban Marjanovic had 12 points and seven boards.

    Kristaps Porzingis, who returned after missing 10 games with right knee soreness, finished with 10 points on 4-of-17 shooting and was 1 of 8 on 3-pointers.

    However, the Mavericks suffered a blow when forward Dwight Powell went down with an apparent right Achilles injury at 2:53 of the first quarter. Powell, who did not return, collapsed to the court when he started a drive toward the basket near the 3-point line. – Reuters
