Dirk Nowitzki hit a jumper with 5.9 seconds left to lead the Dallas Mavericks to a 100-98 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.
Orlando seeks to avoid a sixth straight home loss to Dallas on Friday night in a matchup of teams coming off lopsided defeats.
Magic spokesman Joel Glass says the team has granted New Jersey, Dallas and the L.A. Lakers permission to talk to Dwight Howard’s agent Dan Fegan to discuss possible trades.
Dwight Howard had 23 points and 13 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic extended the NBA’s longest active winning streak to nine games with a 117-107 victory over the injury-depleted Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night.
Caron Butler scored 20 points, Dirk Nowitzki had 17 and the Dallas Mavericks became the latest team to topple the reconstructed Orlando Magic in a 105-99 victory Tuesday night.
