View Comments

DALLAS (AP) – Jason Terry scored 21 points, Vince Carter added 16, and the Dallas Mavericks stretched their winning streak to five games with a 99-60 rout of the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night.

Dirk Nowitzki contributed 14 points in a little over 20 minutes for the reigning NBA champs (8-5), who’ve won six in a row at home after a 0-2 start.

Both teams were playing their fourth game in five nights, but the Mavericks were fresher after resting their starters throughout the fourth quarter of Friday night’s 102-76 victory over Milwaukee.

Marcus Thornton scored 14 points for the Kings (4-9), who’ve dropped four of five, including Friday night’s 103-89 defeat at Houston. Sacramento was making the fourth stop of a five-city road trip and struggled from the opening tip.
