Mavs whip short-handed Jazz

Dirk Nowitzki scored 23 points and the Dallas Mavericks cruised to a 118-99 victory over the reeling Jazz on Wednesday night, just a few hours after Utah traded away leading scorer Deron Williams.
Peja Stojakovic hit four 3-pointers and scored 18 points, and
Shawn Marion contributed 16 points for the Mavericks, who had seven
double-figure scorers in their fourth straight victory. Dallas has
won 14 of its last 15 overall.
Al Jefferson scored 30 points, Paul Millsap had 18 and Andrei
Kirilenko 17 for the Jazz, who lost their fifth in a row as they
opened a three-game trip.
