Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Lakers had won 27 consecutive regular-season games at the Staples Center, 26 in a row at home over the Dallas Mavericks and 10 straight contests overall. None of those streaks intimidated Dirk Nowitzki or Antoine Walker. Nowitzki collected 27 points and 12 rebounds and Walker added 27, 10 and seven assists as the Mavericks won their first road game over the Lakers in exactly 13 years, 110-93. "Walker's been great all year," Mavericks coach Don Nelson said. "I'm not saying he's the best player on this team - probably Nowitzki is. But he is the only guy who has played like an All-Star all year long. We just think he is a sensational basketball player." The Mavericks, who had dropped 46 of 51 to the Lakers, were coming off a 100-99 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers here Wednesday in which they blew a 24-point lead. "When a team dominates 46 of 51 times, it's very important that we got a win tonight," Walker said. "On top of that, we lost Wednesday night in a game we should have won. We have to show the Lakers we can play with them. Up to this point, they thought we couldn't play them." Steve Nash had 23 points and seven assists for the Mavericks, who had been just 2-7 on the road this season but handed the Lakers their first regular-season home loss since February 16 against the New York Knicks. "It feels good," Nash said of the win, which snapped a four-game road skid. "It's been a long time coming. We stuck together tonight." Dallas rookie Josh Howard chipped in 17 and 11 rebounds filling in for the injured Michael Finley, who has a sprained toe. "He's had several games where he's really stood up and we've always liked him as a player but now he's getting an opportunity to show what he can do," Nelson said. "We needed a big effort because with Mike out, the way Mike was playing we really needed a guy to get rebounds and guard. And he made a couple of big shots for us." "It was sweet to win when we were playing without Michael," Nowitzki said. "We've been cold shooting and Michael has been our hottest player. We were really worried about his being out. But we have a lot of talent on our team." Dallas held a 61-59 advantage early in the third quarter before Walker hit a runner to begin a 10-0 run. Nowitzki scored the final eight points of the burst, giving the Mavericks a 71-59 lead on a pair of free throws with 7:46 left. The Mavericks extended their lead to 100-79 on a 3-pointer by Walker with 7:41 left, and the Lakers got no closer than 11 points thereafter. Dallas employed a "Hack-a-Shaq" defense on Lakers center Shaquille O'Neal, who had 25 points and 14 rebounds but made only 11-of-24 free throws, including 3-of-10 down the stretch. "I was hoping that we can cash in on it because I thought it was the golden opportunity for us to do so," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said of the numerous free throws. "We never could successfully complete two free throws and get back under 10 points. And there were plenty of opportunities there to take advantage of it." Lakers point guard Gary Payton was ejected with 4:50 left in the first quarter after picking up two quick technicals from referee Steve Javie, the first for arguing a call and the second for throwing the ball underhanded in his direction. The Lakers were whistled for four technicals in the first half. The Mavericks held a 35-19 advantage after Nowitzki opened the scoring in the second quarter with a jumper, but the Lakers immediately went on a 23-4 run to take their biggest lead, 42-39, on a dunk by Kobe Bryant with 5:52 left in the half. But Dallas did not wilt and took a 57-52 edge into the break. "We were fighting uphill the entire game," said Bryant, who had 15 points but made only 4-of-18 shots. "At the start of the game they came out and made a couple shots and the technicals really got us out of synch, so from then on it really was an uphill battle." With 8:44 left in the contest, O'Neal and Walker were whistled for double technicals for arguing with each other running back down the court after O'Neal dunked to pull Los Angeles within 97-79. O'Neal had bumped Walker after landing following the dunk. "I ain't taking no pushing from nobody," Walker said.
