Late rally against Magic not enough for Mavs


By Mike Fisher, for NBA.com
Posted Friday April 2, 2010 1:11AM

DALLAS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Thursday's meeting between the No. 2-seeded teams in their respective conferences featured players on the Mavs and Magic wearing green accessories in recognition of the NBA's "Guard The Planet'' Night.

But for Orlando, it was also "Guard The Mavericks'' Night.

"They missed some shots they would usually make,'' said Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy after the Magic's nationally-televised 97-82 manhandling of Dallas. "But they didn't have (fresh) legs, things like that. ... It was still great to get a win.''

The Magic (53-22) was rested and ready after being off since Sunday; the Mavs (50-25) may have been leg-weary after their demanding and emotional overtime win in Memphis 24 hours earlier. In that victory, Dallas touched history, reaching the 50-win mark for the 10th consecutive season after overcoming a late-game deficit of 14 points.

But there was not much of a late-game rally here.

Dallas shot just 38.3 percent for the contest, and that was an improvement over the 33.8 percent shooting forced upon them by in-control Orlando as just 10 minutes remained in the game. The score was 74-58 at that time; that was just shy of the 18-point lead forged by Orlando late in the third quarter when Dallas managed just 20 points in the quarter. The Magic created similar success at the end of the first half when they cracked open what had been a 32-32 tie by running off seven consecutive points and an 11-4 close-out to lead by 43-36 at intermission.

Four Orlando players scored at least 14 points: The Mavs could not account for Dwight Howard's 17 points(or his 20 rebounds, or his five blocks). They could not prevent Vince Carter's 19 points. They could not stop Jameer Nelson's 14 points. And most surprisingly, they had no solution for the marksmanship off the bench of Mickael Pietrus, who made 7-of-8 shots for a season-high 24 points -- three times his season average. Pietrus was also responsible for 13 of his team's first 14 points of the second quarter.

Orlando was especially successful from the arc -- a pregame concern of Dallas coach Rick Carlisle as the Magic ranks at the top of the NBA in that category -- as it made a stunning 14 of 24 of its 3-point attempts for 58.3 percent. Pietrus was again a force there, as he hit all six of his long-bomb attempts.

"Obviously,'' Van Gundy said, "Pietrus has a huge night.''

The Mavs, often in desperation, tried to counter from the perimeter but could only make 4-of-14 for 28.6 percent.

The Mavs' poor shooting was also reflected in Dallas' assist totals. The Mavericks -- keyed by All-Star point guard Jason Kidd -- are one of the top three assist teams in the NBA at 23.53 per game. Kidd managed just two assists in this game and Dallas totaled only seven, a season-low. In fact, the total is so dismal that it's half the previous season low of 14, set in a March 13 loss to the Knicks.

The lone Dallas bright spot? Dirk Nowitzki, who always seems to find an answer against Orlando. He was a modest 9-of-22. But with 24 points, he has now scored at least 20 his last 15 games against the Magic, and is averaging 27.7 points in the last 10 meetings.

However, Nowitzki received too little help: the other four starters, Shawn Marion, Brendan Haywood, Caron Butler and Jason Kidd, combined for a total of 20 points.

And Nowitzki got what little help he did receive too late: Jason Terry scored 16, but just six points in the first half while Dallas was getting buried. And J.J. Barea, used as the fifth guard in Dallas' rotation, didn't play in the first half, scored two points in the third quarter, and came on in the fourth to total 16.

With the win, Orlando builds its lead over the rest of the East pack to 4.5 games, but still trails top seed Cleveland by six games. The Magic -- which lost at home to the Mavs, 96-86 on Feb. 19 in the only other meeting this season -- has won 14 of its last 16.

This marks just the fifth loss in the last 23 games for Dallas, which has previously beaten Orlando in six of the teams' previous seven meetings.
