NBA Scores And More: Mavs Finish Week 2-1

A 2-1 week isn't ideal, but the Dallas Mavericks will certainly take it. The Mavs capped off a 2-1 week on Friday, with a thrilling 100-98 win over the Orlando Magic, improving to 30-23 on the season.

Dallas started out this week with a 90-81 win against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday, constituting their second straight win over their in-state rivals. The Mavs outscored Houston 44-32 in the second half, thanks in part to Jason Terry, who scored seven straight points in under a minute.

Rick Carlisle's Mavericks then took their rings to South Beach on Thursday for a 2011 NBA title rematch, but LeBron James and the Heat got the best of the Mavericks this time. Miami dominated Dallas, winning easily, 106-85. Both James and Chris Bosh finished with 19 points for the Heat.

Dirtk Nowitzki and the Mavs did end their Florida trip on a good note, though, beating the Magic 100-98 on Friday night. Nowitzki scored 28 points in that contest, but none more important than the game-winning jump shot he hit with just under six seconds left to play.
