LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tyson Chandler had 20 points to lead seven Mavericks in double-figure scoring, and Dallas tuned up for the postseason with a 120-106 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.

Richard Jefferson scored 17 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 16 in the third straight victory for the Mavericks, who will finish seventh in the Western Conference. Dallas led for the final 44 minutes and completed a season sweep of the Lakers for the first time in franchise history.

Wesley Johnson scored 16 points and hit four 3-pointers for Los Angeles before spraining his left ankle shortly before halftime. He didn't return, leaving the Lakers with nine healthy players in the second half of their sixth loss in seven games.

Jordan Clarkson had 26 points for the Lakers, who extended their team record with their 59th loss.
