Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- A franchise record may not be enough to give the Dallas Mavericks what they have worked for all season. Dirk Nowitzki had 37 points and 12 rebounds as the Mavericks established a club record for wins in a season en route to a 117-108 victory over the Golden State Warriors. The Mavericks (58-22) stopped a three-game losing streak and surpassed their win total from last season. But despite their record-setting campaign, the Mavs probably will come up just short of winning the Midwest Divison title for the second straight year. "In 25 years, I've never had a team that has done better with the talent we have here," Mavs coach Don Nelson said. "I am so proud of them to get the all-time record here with 58 wins and counting." Led by Nowitzki, the Mavs moved within 1 1/2 games of first-place San Antonio with two games left. The Mavs, who finished one game behind the Spurs last season, close the campaign in San Antonio against the NBA's hottest team on Wednesday. "We've been battling for so long and it looks like we've come up short," Mavs guard Steve Nash said. "Tonight was one of those games where you have to dig deep, motivate yourself and look at the big picture rather than tonight's game. I think that our team is tough enough mentally that we are going to bounce back and we are going to be fine." The Mavs may get some good news Monday with the possible return of leading scorer Michael Finley, who has missed the last 13 games with a hamstring injury. They went just 7-6 in his absence, losing their grip on the division lead that they held since opening night. Antawn Jamison had 25 points and 11 rebounds for Golden State, which is just playing out the schedule after being eliminated from postseason contention Friday. "A couple calls didn't go our way, but that's part of the game," Jamison said. "You have to be able to fight through those situations." Nash added 21 points and 10 assists for the Mavs, who continued their mastery of the Warriors. They have beaten them 17th straight times dating to April 10, 1999. "Well, the Lakers have beaten us 20-something times at their place so I don't know how to explain this stuff," Nash said. "This is a good team we played tonight. They are capable of pretty much beating any team in the league and it was a good enough performance to get a win. I don't know we've won so many in a row against them." Nash and Nowitzki helped the Mavs take charge in the second half as the duo combined for 17 of their club's first 19 points. Nash had 12, including a jumper with 3:59 left in the third quarter that opened an 81-70 lead. Nash, who outplayed Gilbert Arenas, converted a technical free throw with 2:53 left to give the Mavs their biggest lead at 87-72. They settled for an 89-80 advantage entering the fourth quarter. "We didn't play great tonight again," Nash said. "But we played well and enough and did a lot of good things so I think we're heading back in the right direction. It was important for us to stop this quickly because we need as much time as we can to go forward for the playoffs and have a little momentum and as much positive energy as possible." Nowitzki made sure the Mavs would hold on in the fourth quarter. He scored 12 points in the final period as Dallas was able to maintain a double-digit lead the entire quarter. The 7-foot Nowitzki provided matchup problems for the Warriors all night. He made 10-of-22 shots from the floor and also went 14-of-15 from the line. Nick Van Exel provided the punch off the bench with 17 points and Raef LaFrentz contributed 12 for Dallas, which shot 44 percent (39-of-88). Jason Richardson and rookie Mike Dunleavy each netted 17 points for the Warriors, who shot 44 percent (44-of-100) and held a 53-48 rebounding advantage. The Warriors also scored 58 points in the paint, compared to 36 for the Mavs. Dallas did go with a bigger lineup, inserting 7-6 Shawn Bradley into the starting five while bringing Adrian Griffin off the bench. "I think the big lineup really worked well," said Nowitzki, who registered his 39th double-double. "We rebounded with them and they are a very good rebounding team so that was nice." Nowitzki had 18 points at the half, helping the Mavs to a 62-58 advantage. Jamison kept the Warriors in it with 20 points.
