Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Juwan Howard scored 17 of his 32 points in the pivotal second quarter, when the Dallas Mavericks pulled away before handing the Sacramento Kings their worst home loss of the season, 119-107.

Howard made 8-of-10 shots in the second period as the Kings connected on 58 percent (15-of-26) of their attempts and turned a five-point deficit into a 64-58 halftime lead.

"This was a big win for us," Howard said. "This is one of the teams that's going to make a lot of noise in the Western Conference playoffs. Who knows, we might meet them in the playoffs."

Howard, guarded by former University of Michigan and Washington Wizards teammate Chris Webber for most of the game, also pulled down 12 rebounds and handed out five assists.

"I don't make it an individual thing," Howard said of playing against his friend and former teammate. "I have the utmost respect for that guy. I owe a lot to him personally."

Dirk Nowitzki collected 25 points and 11 rebounds and Michael Finley added 23 and six for Dallas, which shot 50.5 percent (49-of-97) and improved to 3-1 on a five-game road trip. The Mavericks moved one half-game in front of the Los Angeles Lakers for fourth place in the Western Conference.

Steve Nash ran the Dallas offense efficiently, totaling 18 points and 12 assists along with four steals. The Mavericks made 9-of-18 shots from 3-point range.

"Well, it's a success considering the buildings that we've gone into and won," Nash said of the five-game trip that concludes Tuesday in Houston. "But obviously, we're not done. Everything's really a one-game season now."

Webber had 27 points and 10 boards and Peja Stojakovic added 24 and eight for Sacramento, which fell to 30-7 at Arco Arena. The Kings remained two games in front of the second-place Lakers in the Pacific Division. Sacramento had won three games since an 84-72 loss to the Lakers a week ago.

"We just got out tails kicked, Dallas played great," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "After the first quarter, they controlled the game, we just couldn't stop them. Every time down they pretty much got what they wanted to, offensively every time."

The Kings got their lead as high as nine points, the final time with 9:07 to go in the second when Webber hit a 21-footer to make it 41-32. Vernon Maxwell and Bobby Jackson traded baskets before Howard converted a three-point play to ignite a 13-2 run that put the Mavericks ahead for good.

Nowitzki had a pair of 3-pointers during the decisive run that was capped by Maxwell's basket for a 48-45 lead with 5:38 left in the first half. The Kings closed within one point three times thereafter, the last time when Jackson hit a 16-footer to make it 52-51 with 2:57 to go.

"We knew it would be a tough game from the get-go," said Jackson, who scored 10 points in 23 minutes off the bench. "Coach (Don) Nelson had them come out with their assignments all mixed up and they were beating us back on offense. That's what really helped them."

Four different players scored for the Mavericks during a 9-0 that Nowitzki capped with a 3-pointer for a 75-64 advantage with 9:01 left in the third.

Dallas made 6-of-9 shots from behind the arc in the third period to take a 98-83 lead into the fourth. In the final quarter, the Kings did not get the deficit below double digits until Doug Christie hit a 3-pointer with 3:33 to play to make it 112-103.

Howard answered with 1-of-2 from the line.
