Philadelphia:

Dirk Nowitzki had 28 points and 12 rebounds, and the Dallas Mavericks erased a 15-point deficit with a dominant second half to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 82-75 on Friday.

Dominique Jones added 12 points, and Jason Kidd had nine points, nine rebounds and eight assists to help the Mavericks win their sixth straight game. The Mavericks snapped a tie early in the fourth with a 9-0 run, and that was more than enough with the 76ers losing their touch in the second half.

Nowitzki nearly beat the Sixers on his own in the second half, scoring 24 points after halftime to match Philly's team total in the half.

Nik Vucevic scored 16 points to lead the Sixers, who missed 13 of 14 attempts from 3-point range.
