DALLAS (AP) -- Dirk Nowtizki scored 27 points, Jason Terry had 24 and the Dallas Mavericks got a much-needed victory, beating the Washington Wizards 107-98 on Tuesday night. The defending NBA champions had lost eight of their previous 10 games. That included three road losses in three nights before a welcome two-day break leading into consecutive home games against the league's two worst teams. Rodrigue Beabuois, who also had a couple of acrobatic plays to keep balls from going out of bounds, added 19 points. He had five in a row in less than a minute early in the fourth quarter when the Mavs had a 7-0 run to go up 92-79. Trevor Booker had 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Wizards (9-32). The only team with fewer wins than Washington is Charlotte (6-34), which plays in Dallas on Thursday night before Southwest Division-leading San Antonio is in town Saturday night. Jason Terry's short jumper started the clinching run early in the fourth quarter, Beaubois quickly followe...

Mavs Continue To Search For Answers
