Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- Josh Howard and Dirk Nowitzki kept the Dallas Mavericks charging into the playoffs. Howard scored 27 points and Nowitzki collected 18 and eight rebounds in limited duty as the Mavericks closed the regular season with 108-88 rout of the playoff-bound Memphis Grizzlies. It was Dallas' ninth consecutive win, improved the team's record to 16-2 since coach Avery Johnson replaced Don Nelson on March 19. "During this last stretch, we've played some pretty good games against some good teams," Johnson said. "There have been stretches during this run, though, that have made us be humble about some things." "It was a pretty good (regular season)," Nowitzki said. "We had injury problems with (Erick) Dampier out. We had Michael Finley out the first month. Marquis (Daniels) battled injuries all year and (Jerry) Stackhouse was in and out. But we've gotten hot at the right time and now we are on the same page and ready for the playoffs." The Mavericks had little trouble in this one as they raced to a 25-6 lead in the first quarter. Howard, who left the game in the third period after coming down awkwardly on a layup, scored 12 points and Nowitzki added seven during the surge. "We've been trying to do this the last couple of games," Howard said. "Guys have been playing hard all year, and tonight we were able to give guys breaks. Other guys were able to show coach (Avery Johnson) they can play. We're ready for the playoffs. "We've got 16 games to win. Hopefully we can win them all." Memphis never got closer than 63-55 after a pair of free throws by Pau Gasol with 7 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter. Dallas responded with an 8-0 burst capped by a jumper by Nowitzki, who played just 27 minutes. The Grizzlies have lost five of their last six, finishing the regular season in similar fashion to last season's slide of six of seven prior to getting swept by San Antonio. "They came in here and just really spanked us on our home court, but luckily it doesn't really mean anything," Grizzlies guard Bonzi Wells said. "We wanted to get this victory, and it's tough to go into the playoffs on a losing note. The fact is, we kind of did that last year and you saw what happened. It's going to be tough, but hopefully we can recover." Fourth-seeded Dallas (58-24) finished with the second-most wins in franchise history and will host fifth-seeded Houston in the first round. Last season, the Mavericks (52-30) did not have the home-court advantage as the No. 5 seed which led to their ousting by Sacramento. One of the worst teams in the league in its first eight seasons, Memphis (45-37) will be in the playoffs for the second consecutive campaign. The Grizzlies will have the daunting task of trying to slow down Phoenix, which finished with the best record in the NBA. "It's tough," Memphis forward Mike Miller said. "The last game at home, you want to bring energy. That's one thing that was disappointing. Our energy wasn't there. The one thing we've got to focus on (Thursday morning) when we come in here is that it's a clean slate." Fourth-seeded Dallas (58-24) finished with the second-most wins in franchise history and will host fifth-seeded Houston on Saturday. Last season, the Mavericks (52-30) did not have the home-court advantage as the No. 5 seed which led to their ousting by Sacramento. "We aren't a perfect team," Johnson said. "We have a lot to work on, starting Saturday. But we can hone in on one team now and play good basketball." One of the worst teams in the league in its first eight seasons, Memphis (45-37) will be in the playoffs for the second consecutive campaign. The Grizzlies will have the daunting task of trying to slow down Phoenix, which finished with the best record in the NBA. "We have to focus on what Phoenix does best and what we do best, and (Thursday) morning it'll be like none of this even happened," Miller said.
