Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- Dirk Nowitzki kept alive his 20-point streak, but it was his defense that stood out in the end. Nowitzki scored 24 points and made a series of clutch defensive plays in the final minute as the Dallas Mavericks held on for a 95-88 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. The Mavericks' sharpshooter, who had 15 rebounds, scored at least 20 points for the 16th straight game. After the Trail Blazers made a strong third-quarter charge and took the lead on Damon Stoudamire's 3-pointer, Nowitzki hit a 20-footer at the buzzer for a 72-71 lead. "It was a big shot to try and quiet the crowd a little," Nowitzki said. "But if I make that shot or not we knew that it was going to be a dogfight in the fourth." Portland came within one point three times in the fourth, but Nowitzki's defense kept Dallas in control. He first blocked a shot by Zach Randolph with 55 seconds left, helping Dallas hold onto its 89-88 lead. After Jerry Stackhouse's finger-roll gave the Mavericks a three-point edge with 31 seconds remaining, Nowitzki made a steal on the Trail Blazers' next possession and was quickly fouled. The 7-foot German made both free throws for a 93-88 lead, then emphatically blocked Richie Frahm's layup attempt with 16 seconds left. "It wasn't a pretty game by either team," Nowitzki said. "They made their run there in the third and we knew we had to get back to our defensive principles. I think our defense won the game for us in the fourth quarter." Nowitzki's heroics gave Dallas a 4-1 record since Avery Johnson took over for coach Don Nelson, who is recovering from shoulder surgery. "This was the type of win I'm excited about," Johnson said. "I like close games. I'm excited we held this team under 90 points. Those guys scored over 100 points against one of the best defensive teams in San Antonio (on Monday). To hold them to 88 says something about our guys." Since Johnson took over, the normally offensive-minded Mavericks have held opponents to an average of 90.8 points. Stackhouse scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and Michael Finley added 22 points, making 4-of-6 3-pointers. "I don't know what happened really," Stackhouse said of his layup in the final minute. "I saw a lane and took the ball to the hole. When the long ball isn't going you gotta get a little closer look." Stoudamire scored 15 of his 22 points in the third period, when Portland held a 32-18 advantage. Zach Randolph scored 19 points in his return from a six-game layoff due to a bruised right knee. "It felt good just to get back out there and play," said Randolph, who shot 7-of-15 from the field. "I'm not at 100 percent yet but I'll work on it and try to make it better. It's still frustrating not to win though. We battled, just didn't get it done in the end." "I think you can sum this game up by saying that they made the plays and the shots at the end of the game and we didn't," Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "That layup by Stackhouse really hurt us." Portland made just 15-of-29 free throws, including 7-of-15 in the fourth quarter. "If you're looking for another difference, we made only 15-of-29 free throws while they made 15-of-17 of theirs," Cheeks added. "That's the ballgame." It was the 11th loss in 13 games for the Blazers, dropping them to 1-7 against the Southwest Division this season. The Mavericks had a 9-0 run in the first quarter and a 12-1 run to end the second, giving them a commanding 54-39 lead at halftime. They shot 67 percent (14-of-21) in the second quarter and had 21 assists on 23 baskets going into intermission.
