DALLAS (AP) -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points, O.J. Mayo hit two tiebreaking free throws and the Dallas Mavericks held off a Jeremy Lin-led surge to beat the Houston Rockets 105-100 on Wednesday night.
Lin and James Harden combined to score the last 18 points for the Rockets, who erased an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit and got even at 97. After Elton Brand blocked a layup attempt by Harden, Mayo hit both free throws after getting fouled on a layup at the other end.
Lin had a chance to tie the score on free throws, but missed the second of two. The Rockets got one more chance to go in front, but Harden couldn't get a good look at a layup. Nowitzki won a scramble for the ball and hit two free throws for a 101-98 lead.
Dallas won its season-best fourth straight game, and the Rockets lost their fifth in a row, also a season high.
Harden led the Rockets with 20 points but made just 5 of 23 from the field. Lin had 19 with some critical misses among his 6-of-10 shooting on free t...
BEST OF MAXIM
Dirk Nowitzki is taking his game to new heights.
As in, outer space.
The Dallas Mavericks, always on the cutting edge of viral videos, released their latest clip on Tuesday in which a bobblehead version of the Mavericks superstar is launched by balloon to see just how high he can fly. The entire event is captured on video.
The result is simply breathtaking as you watch the bobblehead...
Dirk Nowitzki had a great moment with a Sacramento Kings security guard last week. The officials for the Mavericks-Kings game were doing a video review of a play with 36.1 seconds remaining in the game. Dirk was trying to work his way over towards the monitors to see how things were going with the review, only there was one problem: a bold security guard stood in his way.
Over the weekend, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was doing his best to check out a review near the end of the Mavericks/Kings game at Sleep Train Arena.As Dirk attempted to get a better look at the review, a Kings security guard did his best to block of the path of Dirk from getting a closer look:
THE RIGHT STUFF
Video: Dirk is out of this world!
It’s a little late, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t show this light-hearted moment between Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki and a Sacramento Kings security guard from this past Thursday’s Kings-Mavericks game (won by the Mavs 117-112 in OT). As Los That Sports Blog explains, Disco Dirk was trying to get a closer look at an official’s video review late in the fourth quarter, but...
Some of these NBA players should take note of this video of a security official as he plays excellent defense on Dallas Maverick Dirk Nowitzki. Nowitzki tries to make his way to the replay table to assist in a call being reviewed by the referees, but a security official slides his feet keeping between Nowitzki and the [...]
Dirk Nowitzki will likely not be a factor in Dwight Howard's decision beyond the consideration of on-floor fit.
Dirk Nowitzki has been the Dallas Mavericks' preeminent scorer through nearly all of his 15 seasons, but he hasn't had to carry the load during one of the team's longest win streaks of 2012-13.
Looking for another balanced effort, Dallas will seek a season-high fourth consecutive victory Wednesday night while trying to add to its recent dominance over the struggling...
Dirk Nowitzki wants to be a Dallas Maverick forever, but also doesn’t want to be chasing a low playoff seed every year either.
The figurative (possibly literal) Bank of Mark Cuban is open, but he doesn’t want to take on bad salary or deviate too far from the flexibility Dallas has built either.
The Mavs have won [...]
According to the boss, Dirk isn't going anywhere
Even though it hasn't been discussed widely thus far this season, Dallas Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban has dismissed the notion that his struggling team--sitting at 10 games under .500 in recent days--will trade superstar and long-time franchise player Dirk Nowitzki to clear cap and accelerate the inevitable...

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By SCHUYLER DIXON AP Sports Writer The Dallas Mavericks are finally playing like the team they thought they built after Deron Williams spurned them in the offseason.
If they keep this up, it might not be too late to extend their playoff streak to 13 seasons.
The Mavericks have won a season-best four straight games since dropping 10 below .500 for...
(Photo Credit: The Associated Press) With Dirk fully back from his knee injury, and Elton Brand looking rejuvenated, we’ve been graced with some Mavericks basketball of old over the past three games. Not to mention, Darren Collison and O.J. Mayo, two of the streakiest players in the NBA, have been tearing it up. My only question, [...]
