Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 points and the Dallas Mavericks rallied from 14 points down in the second quarter to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 101-96 on Thursday night. Dallas won its second straight - improving to 15-0 all-time against the Bobcats - although the victories have come against lottery-bound Washington and Charlotte. Jason Terry added 18 points for the Mavs, who had lost eight of their previous 11. Corey Maggette scored 21 points to lead the league-worst Bobcats (6-36). After trailing most of the first half, Dallas took control with a third-quarter surge fueled by consecutive 3-pointers from Nowitzki. Charlotte was behind by 17 in the final quarter before pulling to 99-96 on D.J. Augustin's layup with 19 seconds left. But Nowitzki converted two free throws on his team's next possession to clinch the victory.
