Unhappy Nowitzki, Mavs answer Cuban's cry by beating Spurs

Nowitzki, Mavs answer Cuban's cry by beating Spurs

Mark Cuban had some more words for the Dallas Mavericks after their latest performance.

``Good win,'' he told them.

Perhaps inspired by a tongue-lashing from their owner over their lackadaisical play in their previous game, the Mavericks bounced back by beating the rival San Antonio Spurs 107-102 Wednesday night.

Josh Howard scored 29 points, including a key layup in the final minute, and Jason Kidd hit a clutch 3-pointer with 31 seconds left to seal the victory - but that was only part of the show.

Jason Terry fed Kidd for that 3, then grabbed a rebound that led to the game-icing free throws with 10.8 seconds left. Dirk Nowitzki had 24 points, 12 rebounds and five assists, and Erick Dampier had nine points, four rebounds and pestered Tim Duncan into a bad night. Duncan was 7-for-21, with only eight points over the final three quarters.

In short, it was everything Dallas did not do in a thumping on Monday night against an Oklahoma City team missing its two leading scorers.

``If we play hard every possession like we did tonight, we can beat a really good team,'' Cuban said after this game. ``Now it's up to the guys to keep on doing it. ... I knew what we were capable of. We got leadership from Dirk and Josh and Jason Kidd. Everybody was really good. Now we've got to do this again and again.''

On Tuesday, Cuban questioned his team's effort and commitment, threatening to get rid of anyone he didn't think was trying.

``I don't care what their contract is,'' he said. ``I would rather turn over the roster 100 percent than subject fans to another game like last night.''

The Mavericks took control of a tight game by holding the Spurs to only two baskets over the final seven minutes of the third quarter. That defense helped turn a four-point deficit into a seven-point lead. The lead grew to 10 late in the fourth quarter, until Tony Parker led a 10-2 surge that got San Antonio within 100-98.
