Shawn Marion blocked Caron Butler's jump shot with 1.9 seconds to play, and the Dallas Mavericks opened the second half of their season Wednesday night by avenging a loss from opening night, beating the Washington Wizards 94-93.
Dallas extended its streak of victories in one-point games to
nine, tied for second longest in NBA history. The Mavericks haven't
lost a one-point game since January 2007.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 28 points, Jason Terry added 21, and Jason
Kidd had 15 assists for the Mavericks, who are 2-1 on their
five-game road trip and were coming off a big win against the
Boston Celtics on Monday night. Terry started for Josh Howard, who
missed the game with a stomach illness.
