Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- It took two overtimes and 125 points, but Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks outlasted the Philadelphia 76ers. Nowitzki forced an extra period with a 3-pointer, then scored five points in the second overtime to lift the Mavericks to an exhausting and wild 125-122 victory over the 76ers. The Mavericks blew a 15-point lead early in the fourth quarter, then rallied from four points down in the final two minutes of regulation. There were seven ties and four lead changes in the final 20 minutes, and both teams barely missed buzzer-beating shots. Antoine Walker became the first Maverick in eight years to record a triple-double in consecutive games, while Sixers youngsters Samuel Dalembert and Kyle Korver had the best games of their brief careers. "It was such an emotional game," Mavericks coach Don Nelson said. "It had everything you could want or ask for - gret shooting, bad shooting, good plays, bad plays. It was anybody's game." Under pressure, the best player was Nowitzki, who scored 25 points. His 3-pointer with 1:32 left in the first overtime answered a pair by Allen Iverson and pulled Dallas into a 115-115 tie. The Mavericks survived a 3-pointer by Aaron McKie that rattled out at the overtime buzzer, then finally took control in the second OT. After two free throws by Glenn Robinson - who scored a season-high 34 points - pulled Philadelphia into a 120-120 tie with 41 seconds left, Nowitzki missed a jumper. Antawn Jamison missed a pair of follow shots, but tiny teammate Travis Best got the rebound and found Nowitzki, who buried a go-ahead 14-footer with 24 seconds left. The Sixers had a chance to tie, but Dalembert - who had career highs of 24 points and 16 rebounds with three blocks - split a pair of free throws. They had one last gasp, but Eric Snow fired an airball on a running 3-pointer just before the buzzer. Michael Finley scored 32 points, Jamison added 23 and Walker had 11, 17 rebounds and 13 assists for Dallas, which improved to 17-3 at home. "We had a mental lapse there in the fourth quarter, but the guys stayed focused in both overtime sessions," Jamison said. "We were very fortunate to pull it out." Bothered by the flu, Iverson scored 31 points and Korver added 17 in just 18 minutes for Philadelphia, which made 13-of-30 3-pointers. Iverson and Korver made five each. "It was a winnable game for us," Iverson said. "We had opportunities to win the game; we just couldn't get it done." Playing without injured forwards Derrick Coleman and Kenny Thomas, the Sixers fell to 0-3 in overtime and for the first time have lost three in a row to the Mavericks, who have played consecutive overtime games for the first time since February 1998. Walker, who had 14 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in Monday's overtime win at New York, is the first Maverick since Jason Kidd in January 1996 to post consecutive triple-doubles. "I'm trying to tell myself to keep playing and keep getting guys involved," said Walker, who made just 4-of-19 shots. "That's the great thing about being on this team-having different weapons you don't have to bring it in the scoring category, night in, night out." With Walker controlling the game, Dallas opened an 85-70 lead early in the fourth quarter. But Philadelphia made seven 3-pointers in the period - three by Korber and two by Robinson - to storm back. "Korver got hot, Iverson knocked some shots down, Glenn was on a roll and we were able to get some shots to go down," Ayers said. "I thought they were sensational," Nelson said. "Iverson and everyone else that played in the game found a way to hurt us no matter what defense we played." A jumper by Robinson made it 105-101 with 2:29 left. Dallas pulled within a point, then took the lead when Finley - after rushing a bad shot - raced back into the play and stole the ball from Snow, leading to Best's layup and a 106-105 lead with 36 seconds remaining. Iverson missed a jumper, but Nowitzki split a pair from the line, leaving the door open for Robinson, whose jumper tied it with 14 seconds to go. Finley missed a jumper at the horn. A 3-pointer by Best gave the Mavericks a 112-109 lead before Iverson struck twice from the arc and Nowitzki tied it. McKie, who leads the NBA in 3-point shooting, just missed at the buzzer. "I thought it was over," Iverson said. "I would rather he shot an airball or brick it real bad than for it to tease us like that." In the second OT, a jumper and free throw by Nowitzki helped build a 120-116 lead before Snow atoned for his mistake with a steal and layup and Robinson tied it for the last time with two free throws.
