Mavericks hold on for 114-111 win over Knicks

O.J. Mayo scored 10 of 27 points over the final six minutes of the third quarter, when Dallas charged ahead, and the Mavericks held on for a 114-111 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.

Mayo put Dallas ahead to stay with a 17-foot fadeaway jumper with 43 seconds left in the third quarter to break an 80-all tie. That was part of a 20-8 spurt to end the period against the Knicks (8-2).

Vince Carter had 25 points, including a floater with 6 minutes left that made it 102-90.

The Knicks then had a 21-10 spurt, getting within 112-111 on two free throws by Jason Kidd with 1:15 left.

But Carmelo Anthony, who had 23 points, was short on a potential go-ahead jumper with 4 seconds left.
