BOSTON (AP) – Jason Kidd made a 3-pointer with 2.5 seconds left, putting the Dallas Mavericks ahead as they beat the Boston Celtics 101-97 on Friday night for their seventh straight win.

The Celtics led 97-91, but the Mavericks scored the final 10 points. After Kevin Garnett missed an 18-foot jumper with 15 seconds to go, the Mavericks tried to go inside, but Dirk Nowitzki had trouble handling the ball and threw it to Kidd, who made his second 3-pointer of the game.

After a timeout, Boston’s Rajon Rondo threw the ball over Garnett’s head and out of bounds on an alley-oop play. Garnett then fouled Nowitzki, who made two free throws with 2.2 seconds left. Ray Allen then missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer for Boston.

Nowitzki led Dallas with 29 points while Allen topped Boston with 24.
