Mavs hold off Hornets, extend winning streak to seven

DALLAS (NBA.com exclusive) -- In crunch time Sunday night, Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki was vintage Dirk and New Orleans rookie Darren Collison finally made rookie mistakes.

Nowitzki scored 14 of his game-high 36 points in the fourth quarter as the Mavericks held off the Hornets for a 108-100 victory, extending the league's longest winning streak to seven. Dallas had been cruising along with a 31-6 first-half run and a 25-point, third-quarter cushion, but New Orleans rallied with a 19-3 surge as the Mavs missed 12 consecutive field-goal attempts.

Collison's 3-pointer with 2:45 remaining cut the deficit to 101-97 for the Hornets, who have come back to win 12 games this season when trailing by double figures.

That was still the score when Collison lost control on a daring drive to the hoop with 1:06 left and Brendan Haywood came up with the steal. After Nowitzki nailed a 10-foot turnaround jumper at the other end, Collison had his pocket picked in the backcourt by Caron Butler. Butler missed the layup, but Haywood slammed home the carom to make it 105-97.

"Defensively, he battles and stays within the system," Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said of Butler, who finished with 19 points and four steals after missing the past two games because of a bad reaction to medication. "When he's in the position to make a play, he does."

Collison added a late 3-pointer to finish with a career-high 35 points on 15-for-21 shooting (3-for-5 from 3-point range). Fellow rookie Marcus Thornton added 21 points off the bench, while Emeka Okafor had a season-high 17 rebounds and tied a career high with five steals. Coming off a 40-point game in Friday's win against Orlando, David West was held to 10 points on a 3-for-15 night.

Nowitzki was 14-for-25 in his third straight 30-point game, his longest such streak since February 2008. He added eight rebounds and seven assists. Jason Kidd tallied 13 points (10 in the first quarter), nine rebounds, five assists and a season-high seven turnovers. He also had two steals to pass Maurice Cheeks (2,310) for fourth place in NBA history. Jose Barea had nine of the team's 31 assists as Dallas improved to 21-1 when dishing at least 25.

The Mavericks shot 52 percent from the field (67 percent before intermission) and had a 30-14 advantage in fastbreak points, including a 17-0 margin during a first-half layup line. In their 31-6 run that spanned the first and second quarters, the Mavs had nine layups or dunks by six different players as the Hornets went 3-for-14 with four turnovers.

"We had a nice lead in the third quarter," Nowitzki said. "We were rolling and the next thing you know, we throw the ball all over the place and that got their running game going and they started making shots to get back into the game."

Dallas last won seven straight games from Dec. 29, 2007 to Jan. 12, 2008. The Mavericks are 7-1 since acquiring Butler, Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson in a trade with the Wizards at the All-Star break. They have held all eight opponents during that stretch to 100 or fewer points in regulation. Opposing teams have shot 25.5 percent (39-for-153) from behind the arc during the win streak. Other than Collison, the rest of the Hornets were 3-for-16 from downtown.

"They're a very strong defensive team when you look at what they've done to their last six opponents during this winning streak going into the game," New Orleans head coach Jeff Bower said. "We knew it was going to be rough from an offensive standpoint for us going into the game. ... They're a very strong team and they play very well together."

The Hornets dropped to 6-8 since losing All-Star point guard Chris Paul to a left knee injury. They were just 1-4 on the road in February.
