Nowitzki's 37 leads Mavs to road win over Celtics


By Couper Moorhead, for NBA.com
Posted Tuesday January 19, 2010 12:24AM

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- Monday night had all the makings of a shorthanded Boston Celtics win over the Dallas Mavericks. But after leading by nine at the half, the Celtics fell flat and surrendered 58 second-half points as the Mavericks handed them their third-straight home loss, 99-90.

Halfway through the season, the Celtics have now lost more home games (seven) than in either of the past two years. This night the explanation was plain and simple: Dirk Nowitzki. With 22 of his 37 points and jumpers galore after the break, Nowitzki had fans at TD Garden at one moment throwing up their arms in agony and had others as hushed as they have been all season.

"He's a matchup problem for anyone," Paul Pierce said. "We're not doing a good job protecting our home court."

Despite allowing 15 points in the first half, Kevin Garnett fill-in Rasheed Wallace at least made Nowitzki's job difficult. And though Boston's defense slowly broke apart in the third, it wasn't until Wallace's fourth foul sent him to the bench with 5:16 remaining in the quarter that Nowitzki slammed the door and all but superglued the hinges.

"The fourth foul with Rasheed really hurt us because Rasheed was doing a great job playing defense on him," said Glen Davis, who drew the Nowitzki assignment with Wallace out.

Leading by three before Wallace's offensive foul, Nowitzki barely touched rim as he scored nine straight points to help give Dallas a seven-point lead going into the final period. Once there, the Mavericks followed up their initial 10-0 flurry with a 12-0 run to seal Boston's fate.

"The thing that we just have to keep talking about and preaching is, the shots are going to come," Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. "Shots come and go, but strong defense is something that travels and is a winning formula."

Things started well enough for the Celtics, as they assisted on 15 of their first 22 baskets and shot 55 percent in the half. Had Boston made more than 4-of-11 free throws, it might have held more than a nine-point lead at the break, but for the second consecutive game the Celtics crippled themselves at the line, making 8-of-16 overall.

"Our mental focus and our mental toughness right now is not very good," Doc Rivers said. "We had 24 minutes of focus and it's tough to win a game that way against a quality team."

Known in the past as a deadly third-quarter team, the Celtics have been remodeled into the best first-half team in the league while merely falling in the top third in second-half scoring margins.

Monday was no exception, as the season stats dictated the storyline.

After a quick scoring burst to begin the third, the Celtics fell off the energy cliff. Defensive recognition went in the tank, Nowitzki went nuclear and Boston couldn't find the offense -- even with 45 points between Pierce and Ray Allen -- to make up for their rather large shortcomings. The most glaring of which was allowing 80 percent shooting in the third, something the injured Garnett surely wouldn't have stood for.

"The voice of Kevin, it always helps," Rivers said. "Because he holds everybody accountable. But that voice isn't out there right now and somebody else has to do it."

Lately, with Boston having lost four of its last six, nobody has come close to filling Garnett's defensive role. And though we may be in the doldrums of January, there's no question some teams are seeing chinks in the Celtics' home-court armor.

"It's not about being afraid of the building as much as being afraid of the team," Allen said. "Right now we gotta put up a stronger front."
