The AP reports: Josh Howard got Dallas going early and Jason Terry pulled them through late, but it was a team effort. Brandon Bass made nine of 11 shots for 19 points, Dirk Nowitzki had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Antoine Wright had 11 points and some solid defense on Portland’s Brandon Roy. Kidd did, too, along with scoring seven points and grabbing seven rebounds… Roy still scored 26 points, but that included a pair of 3-pointers in the final minute, which made things a bit more interesting but didn’t change the outcome. Portland lost its 11th straight in Dallas.
