Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Dallas Mavericks coach Don Nelson returned to a familiar place and came up with an unfamiliar result -- a win.

Cedric Ceballos scored seven of his 26 points in double overtime as the Mavericks defeated one of Nelson's former teams, the Golden State Warriors, 102-99, for their first win of the season.

Nelson watched Dallas blow a 14-point fourth-quarter lead. But Michael Finley tied it with a long 3-pointer with two seconds left in the first overtime.

Also the Mavericks general manager, Nelson replaced Jim Cleamons as coach on December 4, 1997 and guided them to a 16-50 finish, including a pair of losses in Golden State, where he coached from 1988-95.

Asked he still gets excited when returning to the Bay Area, Nelson said, "No, not really. I've been part of the past. Now I'm a Dallas Maverick. We're trying to do the same thing there as we did here."

Nelson led the Warriors to their last playoff appearance in 1994. They finished the regular season, 50-32, before being swept by Phoenix in the the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.

Terry Cummings, who played under Nelson in Milwaukee from 1984-87, hit the final basket in regulation and gave Golden State its last lead, 92-91, with 27 seconds to play in the first overtime. But he committed a costly turnover with the Warriors trailing, 100-99, in the second extra period.

Ceballos and Cummings exchanged baskets to start the second overtime. But Ceballos' 3-pointer with 3:06 to play put Dallas ahead for good, 99-96.

Cummings hit the second of two free throws with 98 seconds left, cutting the deficit to 100-99. But after a pair of empty possessions, he lost the ball on a handoff in the lane. Ceballos picked up the loose ball and was fouled before capping the scoring with a pair of free throws.

"Those times for me, I don't usually make turnovers," Cummings said. "But I'm not going to lose sleep over it."

Finley finished with 22 points and rookie Dirk Nowitzki totaled 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Mavericks, who have played three extra periods in as many days after losing in Seattle, 92-86, on Friday.

"The team learned about what happened in Seattle," Finley said. "These games are at both ends of the (spectrum)."

Due to the NBA's abbreviated schedule, Dallas plays 13 games in 18 days beginning Tuesday.

"I don't know if the coach can make 50 of these games," Nelson said. "I still love the team and I love the way we play."

Golden State, which lost, 86-84, to Houston on Saturday, led, 94-91 with two seconds left in the first overtime, after Cummings' jumper and a pair of free throws by Chris Mills.

But Finley, who missed a pair from the line with seven seconds left and Dallas trailing by one, inbounded to Shawn Bradley on the left side and received a return pass before dribbling to the right wing and drilling the tying 3-pointer.

Finley, who admittedly was down after missing the free throws, said, "the coaches designed it perfectly. But they wanted me to penetrate and pitch. In my mind, I wanted to shoot."

The Mavericks built a 77-63 advantage on Robert Pack's driving layup with two seconds left in the third quarter. But they went 7:13 of the fourth quarter without a point and 9:43 without a field goal.

First-round pick Antawn Jamison scored six of his eight points during a 15-0 run, capped by John Starks' 3-pointer, which gave the Warriors a 79-78 edge with 5:10 left in regulation.

Cummings finished with 23 points and Starks, his teammate in New York last season, totaled 20 points and 12 assists.

"We played hard both nights," said Starks, whose team shot 36 percent (38-of-104) from the floor. "We didn't give up. But we didn't get the job done."
