Mavericks hold off Cavaliers for 103-95 victory
DALLAS 103, CLEVELAND 95

CLEVELAND (AP) -- O.J. Mayo scored 19 points and the Dallas
Mavericks used a pair of 9-0 runs in the fourth quarter to
defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-95 on Saturday night.



Chris Kaman scored 15 points while Vince Carter and Darren
Collison added 14 apiece for Dallas, which won on the road for
the second time in six games.



Kyrie Irving, who left briefly in the third quarter with a
finger injury, led Cleveland with 26 points, but the Cavaliers
lost their fifth straight game.



Mayo hit a 3-pointer and a layup down the stretch to spark
Dallas, which outscored the Cavaliers 28-22 in the final period.
The Mavericks had six players score in double figures.



Dion Waiters and Daniel Gibson had 16 points apiece for
Cleveland.



Dallas used its first 9-0 run in the fourth to build an 87-80
lead, but five straight points by Irving cut the lead to two.
Irving's basket off a steal tied it at 89 before the Mavericks
scored the next nine points.



A basket by Kaman, a 3-pointer from the corner by Mayo, a lay-in
by Collison and Shawn Marion's jumper gave Dallas a 98-89 lead.



Irving was forced out with 6:54 remaining in the third quarter.
He squeezed his left hand and walked to the bench where he was
examined by trainer Max Benton during a timeout. The two then
walked to the locker room.



X-rays of Irving's hand were negative, and he was diagnosed with
a contusion on his index finger.



Marion, who scored 10 points, made his second straight start
after sitting out five games with a sprained left medial
collateral ligament. He had two points and seven rebounds in
Dallas' 103-83 loss at Indiana on Friday.



The Cavaliers dropped the last four and five of six on an 11-day
road trip. Cleveland was coming off a 114-101 loss at Brooklyn
on Tuesday night, a defensive effort that disappointed coach
Byron Scott. Anderson Varejao (35) and Irving (34) both set a
career high for points in that setback.



The Cavaliers were 29th in the NBA in points allowed (104.8)
entering the game.



Cavaliers rookie center Tyler Zeller returned after missing four
games because of a fractured left orbital bone and a concussion.
Wearing a mask to protect the broken bone, he had three points
and two rebounds in 25 minutes.



NOTES: Mavericks starting F Elton Brand was scoreless in 11
minutes. He missed both shots from the field and had four
rebounds. ... Dallas opens a three-game homestand Monday against
Golden State. ... Cavaliers F Alonzo Gee missed a free throw in
the first quarter after making his first 20 to start the season.
... Cavaliers F C.J. Miles, the team's top free-agent signing,
didn't play for the third straight game on a coach's decision.
