Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- As expected, the Dallas Mavericks extended their winning streak against the Golden State Warriors to 12 games. What was unexpected was the way they did it.

Bob Sura missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer as the Mavericks held on for a 107-105 victory over the lowly Warriors.

"We were lucky to win," Dallas guard Steve Nash said. "We didn't play well once again. We survived but we're going to obviously play a lot better and look for a lot better peformance defensively on a consistent basis."

After Nash made 1-of-2 from the line with 6.7 seconds remaining to give Dallas a two-point lead, the Warriors called timeout and had a chance for the win.

But Eduardo Najera defended Sura well on the final possession, forcing an off-balance shot that failed to hit the rim.

The Mavericks posted their league-high 44th win -- one more than Sacramento -- and pulled within percentage points of the Kings for the league's best record. Sacramento has played two more games than Dallas.

However, Nash sounded like a player on a team struggling just to make the playoffs rather than going for the home-court advantage throughout the postseason.

"I don't really care (about the standings)," he said. "I want us to play well and it doesn't feel good when you look in the paper and you got a great record but you're not playing well. "For me, it's not all it's cracked up to be. I'd much rather feel good about our performance and feel confident about the way we're playing. I think we need to demand a lot more of ourselves."

Michael Finley scored 28 points and Nash added 22 for Dallas, which could not put away the Warriors after building a 12-point lead in the first quarter.

"He's (Nash) their All-Star point guard," Golden State coach Brian Winters said. "He creates a lot of good opportunities for other guys and for himself. He's very smart and clever with the ball and he's an excellent shooter. He made some big shots."

The Mavericks have won four straight and seven of their last eight, but they have shown a troubling tendency lately to allow weaker teams to stay in games, and it almost cost them. Golden State, which has the third-worst record in the Western Conference, rallied from a nine-point deficit late in the third quarter.

"It was a bad defensive effort," Dallas center Dirk Nowitzki said. "We had them pretty much in the first quarter, went up 10 quick. We just didn't do a good job and run away with the game. We made some decisions on the fast break."

"I think your record is indicative of the way you play," Nash added. "We're a good team in crunch time and we have been that way for a few years. But we're not playing up to our capabilities. It's frustrating and we're not really seeing much improvement."

Neither team led by more than three down the stretch after the Warriors tied it, 100-100, on a tip-in by Gilbert Arenas with 2:57 remaining. Dallas took a 104-101 lead on Nowitzki's jumper with 1:06 remaining but the Warriors answered on Arenas' layup six seconds later.

After Najera missed layup, he made amends on the defensive end. Jason Richardson appeared to put the Warriors ahead with a driving layup with 23 seconds to go but his basket was negated as Najera took a charge.

Richardson thought it was the wrong call but elected not to criticize the officials.

"Oh, yeah, I think he (Najera) was moving," he said. "I just saw it on the tape. The refs did a great job of officiating. I can't blame them. I should have stopped and pulled up, but he got the call. That's the way the game is."

Nowitzki's driving layup made it 106-103 with 18 seconds left. Nowitzki blocked a short jumper by Arenas but Richardson chased down a loose ball and hit a 15-footer with 7.9 seconds left to again pull Golden State within one.

But the Warriors fell short, dropping to 5-25 since defeating the Los Angeles Lakers on December 26.

"There's never any solace when you lose, but we played a very competitive game," Winters said.
