DALLAS (AP) – Peja Stojakovic tied his career playoff best with five 3-pointers and had 21 points, and Jason Kidd continued showing off a surprising scoring touch with 18 points, powering the Dallas Mavericks to a 101-89 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night and a 2-0 lead in their first-round series.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 14 of his 33 points in the final quarter for Dallas, which hadn’t won the first two games of a playoff series since the 2006 NBA finals.

Portland led most of the first half, but the Mavericks went ahead on a 3-pointer by Kidd seconds into the second half and never trailed again. Dallas spread out its scoring, tightened up its defense and protected the ball – zero turnovers in the final 28:42.
