MILWAUKEE -- Dirk Nowitzki hit a fallaway 18-footer as time expired in overtime to give the Dallas Mavericks a 115-113 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.

With 3.1 seconds left, Nowitzki caught a pass from Jason Kidd, who finished a point short of a triple-double, and threw it up over Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. The ball rattled off the rim and backboard, dropping softly through the hoop as the backboard lights came on. The play was briefly reviewed, but counted.

Nowitzki, who finished with 32 points and 11 rebounds, immediately untucked his jersey and celebrated with his teammates near the Mavericks' bench.

Bucks rookie Brandon Jennings had 25 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in his first game since scoring 55 against the Warriors on Saturday night.

Kidd had nine points, 10 rebounds and 17 assists for the short-handed Mavericks, who lost forward Shawn Marion when he sprained his left ankle in the second quarter. Drew Gooden had 22 points and 14 rebounds again playing in place of center Erick Dampier.


Hawks 99, Trail Blazers 95, OT: ATLANTA -- Joe Johnson scored eight of his 35 points in overtime to lead Atlanta to its fifth consecutive win.

The Hawks, who won at Portland on Nov. 3, swept the season series for the first time since the 1996-97 season. Josh Smith had 20 points and 16 rebounds.

Rudy Fernandez led Portland with 19 points, including a tying 3-pointer at the end of regulation.


Magic 97, Bobcats 91: ORLANDO, Fla. -- Rashard Lewis had 10 points in his first game back from a suspension, leading Orlando to the victory.

Lewis looked rusty after serving a 10-game ban handed out by the NBA for testing positive for an elevated testosterone level. The All-Star forward finally found his footing late, sparking a rally that moved the Magic in front for good. Teammate Jameer Nelson finished with 16 points.


Aggie Law sent to Charlotte in Jackson deal: CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Golden State Warriors found a home for the disgruntled swingman Stephen Jackson on Monday, sending him to the Charlotte Bobcats in a four-player deal that included former Texas A&M guard Acie Law.

The Bobcats sent shooting guard Raja Bell and forward Vladimir Radmanovic to the Warriors for Jackson, who scored 13 points in the Bobcats' loss Monday, and Law.

Law is averaging 6.2 points, but Bobcats coach Larry Brown said he'll have to fight for minutes in Charlotte's crowded backcourt.


Iverson out in Memphis: MEMPHIS, Tenn.-- The Allen Iverson experiment with the Memphis Grizzlies is over.

Memphis announced Monday that the team has ended its one-year contract with the 10-time All-Star and former league MVP in what it called a mutual agreement. Iverson began an indefinite leave of absence on Nov. 7 to deal with a personal issue after playing only three games with the Grizzlies, all in California.

Iverson's agent, Leon Rose, had no comment.
