Larkin scores career-high 18, Mavs edge Suns

Rookie Shane Larkin, son of baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, scored a career-high 18 points, including two free throws with 11.1 seconds to play, and the Dallas Mavericks held on to beat the Phoenix Suns 110-107 on Friday night.

The Suns had a last chance to tie it when Vince Carter turned it over trying to inbound the ball after a basket by Phoenix with 6.7 seconds left. But P.J. Tucker's try from the corner rimmed out.

Monta Ellis scored 24 and Dirk Nowitzki 21 for the Mavericks, who never trailed.

Shawn Marion scored eight of his 16 in the third quarter when Dallas pulled away after the Suns briefly tied it.

Goran Dragic scored 28 points. Markieff Morris added 23, including 14 in the final quarter, and grabbed 12 rebounds.
