DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowtizki scored 27 points, Jason Terry had 24 and the Dallas Mavericks got a much-needed victory, beating the Washington Wizards 107-98 on Tuesday night.

The defending NBA champions had lost eight of their previous 10 games. That included three road losses in three nights before a welcome two-day break leading into consecutive home games against the league’s two worst teams.

Rodrigue Beabuois, who also had a couple of acrobatic plays to prevent turnovers, added 19 points. He had five in a row in less than a minute early in the fourth quarter to put the Mavs up 92-79.

Trevor Booker had 20 points for the Wizards (9-32).

The only team with fewer wins than Washington is Charlotte (6-34), which plays in Dallas on Thursday night.
