Miami, FL (Sports Network) – Jason Terry scored all 19 of his points in the fourth quarter and was the driving force as Dallas pulled out a 98-96 victory over Miami and snapped the Heat’s 12-game win streak.
Mavericks star forward Dirk Nowitzki scored a team-high 26 points, while the Heat’s trio of stars combined for 60 points, 22 rebounds and 14 assists.
But it was Terry, coming off the bench, who led the Mavericks to their third consecutive victory and 15th in their last 16 games.
Dallas has also won 14 in a row against Miami — a streak that includes the Heat’s last loss, a 106-95 decision on November 27.
LeBron James nearly posted a triple-double, going for 19 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, while Dwyane Wade finished with 22 points and seven assists, but the Heat couldn’t get a few key stops and defensive rebounds down the stretch.
