Dirk Nowitzki scored a season-high 40 points as the Dallas Mavericks ended a four-game losing streak with a 102-96 win over the Utah Jazz in the NBA on Saturday.

Nowitzki scored 10 points in the fourth quarter as the Mavericks fought off a late rally by the Jazz, who trimmed a 23-point deficit down to five with 1:41 left.

Dallas forward Lamar Odom played for the first time after missing four games because of personal reasons. He was supposed to play Saturday in the NBA Development League, but was recalled to the Mavericks and scored nine points in 18 minutes.

Paul Millsap scored 24 points and Derrick Favors added 14 points for Utah.
