The Mavs defeated the Warriors 120-115 last night in a very entertaining game. The Mavs kept the Warriors winless by outscoring them 63-54 in the second half. Jason Terry came off the bench to score 24 points and made several clutch jumpers in the final quarter. He was also 4-6 on his three-pointers. Dirk Nowitzki had a very quiet and unassuming 22 points. The unsung hero for Dallas was Brandon Bass who had 10 points and 12 rebounds. Bass grabbed a rebound off a Nowitzki missed jumper with the Mavs up by two in the final seconds of the game that basically sealed the victory.
Baron Davis led his team with 37 points. Kelenna Azubuike continued his impressive play with 27 points and 11 rebounds. He also made several crowd-pleasing dunks. Golden State made only 16-30 from the free-throw line and two of the main culprits were Monta Ellis and Andris Biedrins. The Warriors were outrebounded by Dallas 49-38. They now will have five days off until they play the Pistons at home on Wednesday night.
