Mavericks (25-29), Hornets (19-37)

It was over when… Dallas point guard Darren Collison dropped in a pair of free throws with 3.1 seconds remaining, giving the Mavericks a two-possession lead at 104-100. The Hornets led 100-96 after Ryan Anderson’s three-pointer with just under a minute left, but the Mavericks answered with a pair of three-pointers by Mike James and Vince Carter. New Orleans had several heartbreaking defeats early in the season during its 6-23 start, but Friday’s loss was arguably the toughest one to swallow. The Hornets had a chance to tie after Carter’s trey, but turned the ball over on an inbounds play near the sideline.
