Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- Michael Finley scored 14 of his season-high 38 points in the fourth quarter, helping the Dallas Mavericks hold on for a 105-102 victory over the shorthanded Sacramento Kings.

The Mavericks led by as many as eight points in the fourth quarter, but Sacramento took its first lead since the first quarter when Predrag Stojakovic scored five straight points, including a 3-pointer that put the Kings ahead, 97-96, with 3:44 left.

Dallas responded with a 6-0 run -- four straight by Finley and a basket by Hubert Davis -- to take a 102-97 advantage with 1:38 to play. A tip-in and a free throw by Vlade Divac cut Dallas' lead to 102-100 with 26 seconds left.

Steve Nash was fouled immediately and sank 1-of-2 free throws as the Mavericks took a 103-100 lead. Jason Williams' driving layup with 19.8 seconds remaining allowed the Kings to move within 103-102.

Finley made two free throws with 15 seconds to play, giving Sacramento a three-point lead, but Williams missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer and Stojakovic committed a turnover with 2.7 seconds left.

"My team plays hard," Dallas coach Don Nelson said. "I have very few complaints this season. They continue to play hard and that's a coach's dream -- to keep it going until the end."

Finley went 14-of-26 from the field and drained six 3-pointers as the Mavericks made 13-of-19 from beyond the arc and shot 54 percent (43-of-79) overall to prevent a four-game sweep by the Kings this season. Despite having won nine of its last 13 games, Dallas has been eliminated from playoff contention.

"I had good looks at the basket," Finley said. "The team recognized that I had a hot hand and they continued to give me the ball. I had good looks at the basket, the ball felt good leaving my hand and it was just one of those nights. It was one of those nights you dream for."

Corliss Williamson scored 20 points and Divac added 16 for Sacramento, which played without leading scorer Chris Webber, who missed the game with a strained left hamstring.

"The guy's (Webber) out, but other guys have to step up and do the job," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "We put ourselves in position to win on the road, and that's what you want. But we just didn't do enough to get over the hump, and they shot well."

The Kings suffered their third loss in five games and moved 2 1/2 games behind sixth-place Minnesota in the Western Conference playoff race.

Dallas led 58-46 at the half, but moved out to its largest lead at 68-51 on a 16-foot jumper by Erick Strickland with 8:41 left in the third quarter. The Kings responded with a 15-4 run. Lawrence Funderburke scored six points in the run, Divac added five and Williamson's layup with 4:30 left capped the surge and cut Dallas' lead to 72-66.

Scot Pollard scored five points in a 7-0 run that pulled the Kings within 76-73 with 1:30 remaining. Sacramento shot 51 percent (13-of-25) in the third quarter and outscored the Mavericks, 29-22, but Dallas still led, 80-75, entering the fourth quarter.

"We did a much better job against them in the second half, but it was too late," Divac said.

Strickland scored 21 points, including 17 in the first half, and Dirk Nowitzki added 13 for Dallas, which overcame 19 turnovers and was outrebounded, 47-32.

The Mavericks took a 29-25 edge after one quarter and extended its lead to 43-29 when Adelman was called for a technical with 8:03 left and Nash made the foul shot. Finley and Strickland scored eight points each in the second quarter, helping Dallas hold onto a 12-point lead at the half.

Stojakovic and Tony Delk scored 14 points apiece and Funderburke went 6-of-8 from the field and had 13 points for Sacramento, which shot 47 percent (46-of-97), but made only 2-of-15 from 3-point range.
