Barea's big night keeps Hornets reeling on road

DALLAS (NBA.com exclusive) -- A new scoring threat emerged for the Mavericks as two troubling trends continued for the Hornets in their 94-90 loss Monday at the American Airlines Center.

J.J. Barea scored a season-high 23 points, with most coming on drives to the basket, and became the first player other than Dirk Nowitzki or Jason Terry to lead Dallas in scoring this season. The Mavs won their fourth straight game and improved to 18-7 to match their 25-game start in 2006-07, when they racked up a franchise-record 67 wins.

"We just didn't give Barea enough respect in terms of his ability to impact games," Hornets forward David West said. "He kept getting layup after layup. We didn't have an answer."

The Mavs improved to 8-1 this year in games decided by five or fewer points and are an incredible 26-6 since the start of last season in games decided by that margin.

"The big thing is that we are winning those close games," Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd said. "We like when we are in control in the fourth quarter, where we're up by five, seven or 10 and we don't always have to make a stop or get a basket down the stretch. The big thing is we've won a bunch of close games and that can only help us down the road."

The road hasn't exactly been easy street for the Hornets. They suffered their 10th loss in 12 games away from the Big Easy and can only boast road wins over the Clippers and Timberwolves. Dallas shot 55 percent, becoming the sixth opponent in the past seven games to eclipse 50 percent against the Hornets.

Chris Paul had 20 points (on 22 shots), 16 assists and five steals for his fifth consecutive double-double since returning from an ankle injury. The Hornets were able to hang with the sweet-shooting Mavericks by converting a Dallas season-high 23 turnovers into 30 points. They also got solid production from the reserves, including three 3-pointers by James Posey and Darius Songaila's season-high 12 points in 11 minutes, all in the fourth quarter.

Barea was 10-for-13 and is averaging 14.8 points over his last four games. Five other Mavericks scored in double figures, including Nowitzki with a season-low 10 points. Four of them came in the final 59 seconds, however, including a left-handed layup off an inbounds pass from Kidd with 20.9 seconds remaining.

"It was kind of like football and Dirk just had to find a way to get open and he did a great job of using the basket to get the layup," said Kidd, who had 13 points and 13 assists. "He was the wide receiver and I was the quarterback and luckily we completed the pass. When you have a 7-footer like that who can move, it's an easy target to hit."

After the layup by Nowitzki put Dallas ahead 92-88, Paul missed badly on a 3-point attempt, but Songaila scored on a put-back attempt. A foul by Posey with 12.9 seconds remaining sent Terry to the foul line for a shot at redemption.

In the team's first meeting on Nov. 4 in New Orleans, the Mavericks led 97-94 with 13.1 seconds left. Terry and Barea combined to miss four free throws as Peja Stojakovic sank a 3-pointer to send the game to overtime, where the Hornets prevailed 114-107. This time, however, Terry sank both free throws to seal the win.

The game didn't exactly start out as a nail-biter, as the Mavericks outscored the Hornets 18-0 in the paint en route to a 35-18 lead after one quarter. Barea scored 13 of his points in the first frame.

Dallas extended its lead to 21 early in the second period, but New Orleans roared back with a 22-6 run. The Hornets' reserves fueled the comeback as Darren Collison, Hilton Armstrong, Julian Wright and Posey played the majority of the minutes, along with Paul.

New Orleans trailed 49-43 at the half, but tied the game at 60 on an alley-oop from Paul to Okafor with 4:31 left in the third quarter. It was the first tie since 13-13, but the Mavericks answered with an 11-4 run and maintained the lead throughout the fourth.

"Dallas is too good a team, has too much scoring potential and defensive ability to put yourself that far behind and come out successfully," Hornets coach Jeff Bower said. "We battled and are pleased with the way we played in the second, third and fourth quarters, but it was a lot to overcome."
