Balanced Mavericks halt Suns' five-game road winning streak

DALLAS (NBA.com exclusive) -- With quality contributions from its newest players and quantity from its oldest, the new-look Mavericks overwhelmed the Suns in Wednesday's 107-97 victory.

Dirk Nowitzki paced six Dallas players in double figures with 28 points, while fellow All-Star Jason Kidd collected his 16th double-double with 18 points, 10 assists, seven rebounds and a career-high seven steals. Making their Dallas debut, ex-Wizards Brendan Haywood tallied 10 points, nine rebounds and five blocks and Caron Butler scored 15. Shawn Marion added 14 points and 10 boards and sixth man Jason Terry scored 17.

Coming off a season-low 32 percent shooting performance in Tuesday's loss at Oklahoma City, Dallas shot 47 percent and led by as many as 19 points in its first double-digit home victory since Nov. 10.

The Mavericks had been in a funk, losing six of their previous eight games overall and four of their last seven at the American Airlines Center, but turned in one of their best defensive efforts in weeks. They held the Suns to 23 percent shooting (5-for-22) from 3-point distance, registered 11 steals and scored 19 points off 19 turnovers.

It was the Mavericks' fifth straight home win against Phoenix, which had won its last five on the road. The Suns had scored 100 or more points in 25 of their last 26 games, including their last 13.

Playing perhaps his last game in a Phoenix uniform, Amar'e Stoudemire got his 20th double-double with 30 points and 14 rebounds, plus three blocks and three assists. Jason Richardson scored 12 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter. Robin Lopez was the only other player in double figures with 14 points and Steve Nash finished with nine points and 12 assists.

Phoenix head coach Alvin Gentry said Stoudemire wasn't distracted by all the trade rumors circulating around the five-time All-Star.

"I think he's put all that behind him and just decided to play, and done a good job," Gentry said.

The Mavericks made their trade for Butler, Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson during the All-Star break. Butler put up an airball on his first shot at the AAC, but settled in and hit some key jumpers. His 22-footer to start the second half ignited a 16-4 run that gave Dallas a 72-53 cushion.

The Mavs cruised into the fourth quarter with an 82-68 lead, but took their foot off the gas and the Suns made things interesting. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Goran Dragic and Richardson trimmed the deficit to 90-85 with 7:45 remaining. The Dallas defense came back to life in the final six minutes, with two steals by Kidd and one by Terry and rejections by Nowitzki and Haywood.

"We kept fighting back," Gentry said. "We had a couple of bad possessions and they had a couple of good ones and they got separation again."

Gentry said the Mavericks definitely improved their roster before Thursday's trade deadline.

"Those guys are really going to help their team," he said. "I think that Brendan Haywood, when you look at everything he brings to the table for them that he's going to be a really nice piece. ... Nothing against Damp, I just think he gives them another element that they really haven't had. They're going to be a very good team."

Butler said he appreciated being able to play alongside two perennial All-Stars and that head coach Rick Carlisle is allowing him to use his skill set.

"He's putting me in comfortable positions, pick and roll sets with Dirk," Butler said. "Obviously, nobody is going to come off him, so I'm going to have a lot of opportunities to create for my teammates and for myself."

As for Kidd, Butler said, "He's a Hall of Famer, one of the best to ever do it, and I love playing with a guy like that. He gives you that confidence and makes the game that much easier, where all you have to do is run, whereas throughout most of my career I had to get the ball off the boards and push it up and set myself up."

Haywood made his first five shots, including four dunks. He was thrust into the starting lineup to replace Erick Dampier, who is sidelined indefinitely after surgery Wednesday to repair an open dislocation of his right middle finger. He suffered the injury in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder.
