Dirk Nowitzki scored 20 points in his 1,000th NBA game to lead the Dallas Mavericks to a 98-89 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.

Jason Terry contributed 18 points, including nine in the fourth quarter, to help the defending NBA champs (3-4) string together consecutive wins for the first time this season.

Lamar Odom added 15 points in his best game since joining the Mavericks in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers on Dec. 11.

Marcin Gortat's 22 points and 10 rebounds and Steve Nash's 15 points and 12 assists paced the Suns (2-4).

The Mavericks lost their first three while trying to introduce five new faces into the lineup after the departures of five key players from the team that won its first title last season.
