Terry’s 22, Nowitzki’s 19 Lead Mavs Past Jazz
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Reserve Jason Terry scored five of his 22 points in a 13-0 fourth-quarter run to lead the Dallas Mavericks to a 94-77 victory Saturday night over Utah and hand the slumping Jazz their fifth straight loss.
The win gave the Mavs their first series sweep of the Jazz since the 2004-2005 season.
Dirk Nowitzki added 19 points and ran his consecutive free throw mark to 72.
The Jazz took a 60-58 lead into the fourth quarter, and led 70-68 with 6:21 left on Raja Bell’s 20-foot jumper. But the Mavs went on a 13-0 run.
Al Jefferson led the Jazz with 21 points, but was ejected in the final minute.
