Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Dallas Mavericks nearly squandered a 13-point fourth-quarter lead but dodged a bullet and reached the 50-win plateau for the first time in 13 years with a 101-97 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

The Mavericks, who had lost three straight games, captured their 50th victory for the first time since the 1986-87 season.

"I just think it was a marvelous win for us and it was the 50th," Dallas coach Don Nelson said. "We broke a losing streak against a really good team. I just can't say enough about the performance of the guys that had the opportunity to play in this game."

It almost did not happen for Dallas, which led 97-84 with 5:50 to go when its offense evaporated. The Mavericks went scoreless for nearly 4 1/2 minutes, allowing the Kings to close within 97-94 on a hook by Chris Webber at 2:30.

On the Kings' next possession, they missed two opportunities to close the gap. Dallas' Steve Nash gambled for a steal, leaving Peja Stojakovic wide-open for 3-pointer at the two-minute mark. Stojakovic missed the shot, but Bobby Jackson grabbed the offensive rebound and fed it to Webber, who was called for an offensive foul.

Michael Finley, who scored 31 points, was fouled at the other end and sank two free throws with 1:22 left to increase the lead to 99-94.

After the teams traded missed shots, Jackson sank a 3-pointer with 45 seconds to go to narrow the lead to two.

Finley failed to increase Dallas' lead when he missed a 19-foot jumper with 21 seconds to go.

Sacramento gave Webber the ball with a chance to tie, but he missed an easy hook shot in the lane. The Mavericks were called for a loose-ball foul and the Kings kept possession, but Stojakovic missed a long jumper and Sacramento's Vlade Divac fouled Calvin Booth. The 68 percent free throw shooter sank two free throws to seal the victory.

"If those are playoff-type games, good grief, what a physical game," Nelson said.

Juwan Howard had 26 points and 12 rebounds for Dallas, which shot just 43 percent (40-of-93) as its best shooters struggled. Steve Nash scored 14 points and Dirk Nowitzki added 13 but made just 5-of-15 shots.

"(Fifty wins) is great, but it's kind of irrelevant if we go out in the first round of the playoffs," Nash said. "We definitely have our sites set on more. Hopefully, these last three games (of the season) we can go out and play as well as we did tonight and go into the playoffs with some momentum."

Shawn Bradley had eight points, 15 rebounds and five blocks as Dallas moved one-half game ahead of Portland for fifth in the Western Conference.

"Great effort from Shawn Bradley tonight," Nelson said. "He was quite a factor and got beat up most of the night. It isn't fair, but that's the way it went."

Webber had 24 points and 13 rebounds and Stojakovic added 18 points for the Kings, which failed in a bid for its season-high sixth straight win.

Sacramento's Doug Christie collected 13 points, but made just 3-of-11 shots. Jason Williams chipped in with 12.

The Kings held a dominating 55-44 edge on the boards, but shot 41 percent (37-of-89) and looked fatigued after back-to-back overtime wins against the Los Angeles Clippers and conference-leading San Antonio.

"It's not time for fatigue now," Webber said. "There only five games left. If anybody says that (that they are fatigued) they're not professional. I'm out there hurting in both ankles. It's crazy pain right now but that's just the way it is.

"You can't take me off the court," he added. "When I was little, I was watching Magic Johnson playing Game Seven. Now I'm trying to get to the playoffs and be in a high position. You don't have time to be hurt or tired."

The Kings lead the Los Angeles Lakers by just one-half game atop the Pacific Division.

"We can't look in our rear-view mirror and try to focus on what LA is doing," Christie said. "We control our destiny. We can't look at the letdown, we have to look at how we're going to fight back from it."
