Mavericks Vs. Celtics Final Score: Dallas Gets Back On Winning Track, Defeat Boston 89-73

The Dallas Mavericks got back on their winning ways by crushing the Boston Celtics 89-73, and were led by Dirk Nowitzki's 26 points. Most of Nowitzki's damage came in the first half where he had 21 points, but the rest of the team made up for it with a big third quarter to give the Mavericks a 17 point lead heading into the fourth quarter.

The Celtics were extremely shorthanded tonight as they were without Rajon Rondo who was suspended, Kevin Garnett and injured Brandon Bass. The Celtics also lost both Jermaine O'Neal and Chris Wilcox in the third quarter due to injury. O'Neal left the game with a sprained left wrist and Wilcox to a strained groin.

With those players out the Celtics were not able to keep up with the Mavericks, they did get 20 points from Paul Pierce and 15 from Ray Allen.
