Kings losing streak in Dallas continues

DALLAS — O.J. Mayo scored 19 points and the Dallas Mavericks took control with a 31-3 run in the first half to win their 17th straight regular-season home game against Sacramento with a 119-96 victory over the Kings on Monday night.

Chris Kaman, playing on a sprained left ankle he suffered last week, scored 16 of his 18 points in the first half and reserve Darren Collison added 15 points for the Mavericks, who won their third in a row.

Francisco Garcia, who was 7-of-12 from 3-point range, and DeMarcus Cousins scored 25 points apiece for the Kings, who haven’t won in Dallas during the regular season since Feb. 27, 2003. Jason Thompson added 11 points and 12 rebounds.

Sacramento, which picked up its first road win of the season Saturday at Portland, opened the game by hitting 5-of-6 from 3-point range. The Kings took a 28-27 lead with 2:26 remaining in the first quarter on Thompson’s tip-in basket.

But the Kings scored only three points over the next 10:52 — all on free throws. They missed 12 straight shots from the floor and had nine turnovers in that span.

Mayo started Dallas’ run with a 20-footer and Vince Carter closed the opening quarter with a steal and dunk that gave the Mavericks a 36-29 lead. The Mavs led by as many as 28 in the first half and were up 65-43 at halftime.

Thompson’s basket broke the drought with 3:34 left in the first half.

The Kings hit 9-of-13 shots to open the second half and went on a 23-12 run, cutting the deficit to 77-66 on Garcia’s 3-pointer. Garcia started in place of an injured Tyreke Evans, who missed his third straight with a sore left knee.

The Mavericks closed the third with an 11-4 spurt. Mayo’s 3-pointer with 26.7 seconds left made it 88-70.

Dallas stretched its advantage to as much as 26 in the fourth, and Sacramento got no closer than 17 in the final 12 minutes.

Dallas starting forward Shawn Marion missed his second straight game with a strained right groin. Kaman played 21 minutes on a gimpy ankle which coach Rick Carlisle described as “a glowing purple” before the game.
