Mavs gets much-needed win, 110-100 over Kings -- The AP reports: The Dallas Mavericks finally won a game without Lamar Odom, who is no longer an option for them. Rodrigue Beaubouis, Jason Terry and the rest of the guys still coming off the bench for the defending NBA champions did just fine in a much-needed victory before going on the road, 110-100 over the struggling Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night. Yi Jainlian, a 7-foot forward from China, added eight points with four long jumpers in a 5-minute span of the second quarter when the Mavericks went ahead to stay... Dirk Nowitzki and Beaubois each had 15 points to lead six players in double figures for the Mavs, who lost three of their previous four games. They are seventh in the Western Conference standings, a half-game behind sixth-place Houston and only a half-game ahead of Denver... Delonte West and Jason Terry each had 13 points, and Brendan Haywood 11 for Dallas. Shawn Marion had 10 points and 14 rebounds.
