Score it a perfect 10 for Ivica Zubac, who lifted the the Clippers to a 126-111 victory Thursday in a potential first-round playoff dress rehearsal against the Dallas Mavericks in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

The 23-year-old center continued to make the most of his minutes in the bubble, scoring a season-high 21 points, including making all 10 of his shots.

With his best game of the season, he helped erase the sting of the 117-115 heartbreaker against the Suns on Tuesday, when Devin Booker buried a buzzer-beater moments after Zubac’s outlet pass was intercepted.
