The Mavericks blew an eight-point lead in the final 90 seconds, then pulled out their third straight victory.
Carmelo Anthony had 44 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks. He played strong defense on the Mavericks' final possession, but was left standing in disbelief long after the buzzer after Nowitzki's shot hit the backboard first, then the front rim, then bounced up before dropping through.
Vince Carter had 23 points,
Tyson Chandler had 12 points and 12 rebounds against his former team and sparked the Knicks' comeback after they trailed, 108-100, with 1 minute 37 seconds left. But New York (21-36) lost for the sixth time in seven games and fell a season-worst 15 games below .500.
