NEW YORK (AP) — After blowing a 25-point lead two nights earlier, the Dallas Mavericks seemed like they were on their way to another collapse.

Trailing by 20 with 8:23 remaining, Brooklyn stormed back to get within four points with 37 seconds remaining.

But the Mavericks dodged a repeat of Wednesday night’s loss at Memphis, closing out the Nets for a 98-90 victory on Friday night behind 20 points apiece from Dirk Nowitzki and former Nets guard Vince Carter.

“We played a lot more good minutes than we played in Memphis for sure. It’s hard to play a perfect 48 minutes in this league, I’ll admit that,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said.

BOSTON (CBS / AP) — Paul Pierce had 26 points, Jeff Green scored 14 of his 18 in the second half and the Boston Celtics overcame foul trouble and some erratic free throw shooting in a 94-86 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

Golden State guard Stephen Curry, coming off a 54-point performance Wednesday in a loss at New York, was held to 25 on 6-of-22 shooting.

Kevin Garnett pulled down 13 rebounds as the Celtics improved to 3-3 since the All-Star break despite playing much of the second half without their starting backcourt. Point guard Avery Bradley went to the bench early in the third quarter with his fifth foul and Courtney Lee picked up his fourth late in the third.

But the Celtics managed to pull ahead slowly in the fourth, taking a 13-point lead that was too much for the road-weary Warriors to overcome.
