  • DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki scored seven of his 32 points in overtime, leading the Dallas Mavericks to a 128-119 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.
    Nowitzki also had 10 rebounds and six assists. In Dallas' loss to Brooklyn on Sunday, he was 2 for 12 from the field in his worst shooting performance of the season.
    Kevin Durant led Oklahoma City with 43 points. He has scored at least 25 in 36 consecutive games in the longest such streak since Michael Jordan's 40-game run during the 1986-87 season.
    Dallas had seven players score in double figures. Jose Calderon went 6 for 8 from 3-point range and finished with 22 points.
    Lakers 127, Knicks 96
    At Los Angeles, Xavier Henry scored 22 points, Nick Young hit five 3-pointers while scoring 20 points, and Los Angeles dropped a franchise-record 51 points in the third quarter of its victory over New York.
    Kent Bazemore scored 18 points as the Lakers won consecutive games for the first time in more than three weeks with a phenomenal offensive effort against the Knicks, who have lost two straight after an eight-game winning streak.
    Cavaliers 102, Raptors 100
    At Cleveland, Dion Waiters scored 24 points and Luol Deng added 19 as Cleveland prevented Toronto from getting closer to a playoff spot.
    The Cavs blew a 21-point lead, but made just enough plays down the stretch to snap a five-game losing streak at home.
