DALLAS (AP) - Eric Gordon completed a three-point play with 4.7 seconds left in overtime and the New Orleans Hornets won 99-96 Saturday night at Dallas to spoil the Mavericks’ first game this season with Dirk Nowitzki in the starting lineup.

After a timeout, O.J. Mayo was beyond the 3-point line when Gordon went up in the air and by him. Gordon’s foot made contact with the ball, knocking it loose. Instead of a foul, officials called it a kicked ball. Dallas got one more chance but Vince Carter’s shot from the right corner ricocheted off the rim.

Nowitzki had a team-high 20 points in 34 minutes, his most extensive action this season. He missed a free throw with 18 seconds left in regulation that would have put the Mavericks ahead by a point.

New Orleans’ Greivis Vasquez had 15 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, but missed a final shot.
