Mavericks start fast, beat Heat 106-93

MIAMI (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, Erick Dampier finished with 20 points and 17 rebounds, and the Dallas Mavericks added to Miami's home woes by beating the Heat 106-93 Friday night.

Jason Terry scored 16 points, J.J. Barea added 12 points and 10 assists, and former Heat forward Shawn Marion scored 12 for Southwest Division-leading Dallas. The Mavs never trailed and are 9-4 on the road, more wins away from home than anyone so far in the Western Conference.

Dwyane Wade scored 28 points and matched a career high with 11 rebounds for the Heat, 2-5 at home since Nov. 10. Udonis Haslem made his first eight shots and finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds for otherwise cool-shooting Miami, which started 0 for 10 from the floor.
