Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- In a game where the quality of play matched the caliber of the teams, the Dallas Mavericks handed the Vancouver Grizzlies their 11th straight defeat, 91-74.

Hubert Davis buried four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and Michael Finley scored 21 points, helping the Mavericks post their second straight victory after a four-game losing streak.

Dallas needed Davis' heroics after seeing their 17-point halftime lead dwindle to two. The Mavericks limited the Grizzlies to a franchise-low 24 points in the first half, during which Vancouver made just 9-of-34 shots (26 percent).

"We dug ourselves a big hole because we didn't come out and start the game like we should have," said Grizzlies center Bryant Reeves. "We came back and the game was within a few points and Hubert stepped up and hit some big shots. That just kind of deflated us."

Owning two of the four worst records in the Western Conference, the teams combined for 40 turnovers and just 32 assists. Dallas improved to 8-14 and Vancouver fell to 4-17.

Rookie Felipe Lopez scored a season-high 21 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim added 21 and eight rebounds for the Grizzlies, who are in the midst of their longest skid since a 13-game slide from December 26, 1997-January 16, 1998.

The game was delayed briefly due to a slippery substance on the floor, a problem which delayed the Mavericks' home game on Tuesday by 70 minutes.

Dallas coach Don Nelson gave his players the option to sit out Tuesday's game for fear of injury and guard Robert Pack was the only Maverick to accept the offer. Ironically, Pack suffered a partially torn hamstring in the first half of this contest and will be sidelined indefinitely.

Dallas forward A.C. Green was a winner in his NBA-record 1,000th consecutive game, contributing 11 points and six boards. Last season, Green broke the record of Randy Smith, who had played in 906 straight contests.

"It's an honor. It creates excitement," Green said. "There hasn't been a whole lote of excitement going on here lately."

"A thousand games in our league is like going to the moon and back," Nelson said.

Steve Nash and Grizzlies rookie Mike Bibby traded baskets in the opening 31 seconds, but Vancouver went nearly four minutes before scoring again as the Mavericks took control. They reeled off 10 straight points, including two baskets apiece by Gary Trent and Finley.

Dallas forced six turnovers and limited Vancouver to 26 percent (5-of-19) in the first period, taking a 23-10 lead.

It was more of the same in the second period as the Grizzlies misstheir first 10 shots. Their first points of the period came on a dunk by Abdur-Rahim 6:04 before halftime, making it 28-12. Vancouver committed eight turnovers and made just 4-of-15 shots (27 percent) in the second period, trailing 41-24 at intermission.

"There is not any team in the NBA that can play as poorly as we did and expect to win," said Vancouver forward Pete Chilcutt.

Lopez helped get the Grizzlies going midway through the third quarter, hitting back-to-back driving layups to trigger a 13-2 run. A three-point play by former Maverick Cherokee Parks closed that burst, pulling Vancouver within 54-51 with 2:31 remaining.

Leading 62-55 heading into the fourth period, Dallas saw its edge shrink to 68-66 on a free throw by Michael Smith with 7:04 to play. Davis put away the game for the Mavs, draining three consecutive 3-pointers.

"We knew what we did wrong to give up the big lead in the third period," Finley said. "Luckily enough, we maintained the composure we had and built on it. Some guys hit the big shots, like Hubert."

Trent scored 16 points, Nash handed out 10 assists and Shawn Bradley added 10 boards and five blocks for Dallas, which made just 18-of-28 free throws.

Grizzlies coach Brian Hill was tossed for the second straight game, getting ejected in the third quarter for arguing with officials. He may not have wanted to stick around for any more of his team's ugly performance, which included 22 turnovers and just 13 assists.

"We didn't get near anybody defensively (in the first half)," Hill said. "We were soft and we were very selfish, standing still offensively. We had five assists and 14 turnovers at halftime, which was indicative of the way we played."
