Dirk Nowitzki overcame a slow shooting start to finish with 22 points, including the go-ahead basket, and the Dallas Mavericks stretched their NBA-best winning streak to nine in a row with a 112-109 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.
With veteran point guard Jason Kidd getting a night off for the
Mavericks, who played their 10th game in 16 days since the All-Star
break, Jason Terry had 26 points and rookie Rodrigue Beaubois tied
his season high with 17.
Nowitzki missed his first five field goals before finally
sinking a 17-footer with eight minutes left in third quarter. When
he penetrated for a 12-footer with 6:08 left in the game, that gave
Dallas the lead for good.
Corey Brewer had 24 points for Minnesota, which has lost 10 of
its last 11 games.
