Dallas Mavericks Team Report – December 14

=== Dallas Mavericks Team Report – December 14 ===

(Sports Network) -The Dallas Mavericks host the Golden State Warriors tonight
at American Airlines Center.

This is the second meeting of the season between the two clubs. On November
8th, Dallas knocked off the Warriors, 101-98, in overtime in front of its home
crowd. Overall, the Mavericks have dominated Golden State and have won 21 of
the last 22 contests in this series.

Dallas enters tonight’s game having won two in a row. On Monday, Michael
Finley scored a season-high 27 points and hit a game-winning jumper with 3.2
seconds left as the Mavericks downed the Chicago Bulls, 94-93, at the United
Center.

Nowitzki finished with 21 points and nine rebounds but struggled from the
field for the Mavericks, who recorded their 13th consecutive triumph over the
Bulls. Josh Howard compiled 16 points and 10 rebounds in Dallas’ fourth
straight win on the road and second in a row overall.

Dallas guard Jerry Stackhouse missed the game against Chicago after hurting
his right hand in a Sunday practice. He is probable for tonight’s contest.

The Mavericks are 7-5 as the host this season.
