Mavs vs. Blazers final: Dallas takes 114-91 win

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Dallas Mavericks used a strong fourth quarter to take down the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, 114-91.

The Dallas Mavericks pulled away late from the Portland Trail Blazers, taking a 114-91 win on Monday night thanks to a strong fourth-quarter performance.

The first three quarters stayed close, with a 57-55 score at half time and an 83-79 line after the third. The fourth quarter belonged to Dallas, which pulled away early and outscored the Blazers 31 to 12 in the final frame.

O.J. Mayo put up the biggest numbers for the Mavs, scoring 32 points and chipping in two rebounds in almost 40 minutes on the court. His scoring was needed, as the Mavs looked to continue working on offense with no Dirk Nowitzki. Chris Kaman was the top bench performer for Dallas, putting up 16 points and six rebounds.

LaMarcus Aldridge and Wesley Matthews led the Blazers in scoring with 20 points each.

Dallas' win over Portland moved them to 3-1 early in the season. They'll play their next game on Wednesday when the Toronto Raptors come to town.
