Stackhouse Haunts His Old Team

From Associated Press

Jerry Stackhouse played a starring role against his former team.

Stackhouse scored 28 points, including three three-point baskets during a 23-6 run in the fourth quarter, to help the Dallas Mavericks win for the seventh time in eight games, a 122-113 victory over the Wizards Sunday at Washington.

Dirk Nowitzki had 32 points and 13 rebounds for the Mavericks, who won despite four Wizard starters scoring at least 20 points.

“We need somebody who can come up and score for us and he was big in the last two games,” Nowitzki said. “I think he’s going to win a lot of games for us this year.”


Stackhouse was sent to Dallas on draft day in a deal in which Antawn Jamison went to Washington.

Jamison and Larry Hughes led a balanced Wizard attack with 23 points apiece.

Miami 112, Milwaukee 110 -- Keyon Dooling forced a second overtime with a running layup, and the Heat took advantage by scoring the first seven points of the extra session at Miami.

Shaquille O’Neal had his third straight double-double, finishing with 19 points and 18 rebounds for Miami, which ended a two-game losing streak dramatically.

Keith Van Horn scored eight points in the first overtime, including three-pointers on consecutive trips. When Michael Redd made a jumper with 11.7 seconds left, the Bucks were up four and seemingly poised to win their fourth in a row.

But after Eddie Jones scored to cut the lead to 105-103, Van Horn gave the Heat its biggest break, dropping a pass and knocking the ball out of bounds with 5.7 seconds left. Dooling took the inbounds pass, raced the length of the floor and dropped in a layup with 1.4 seconds left to tie it.

Van Horn -- who led all scorers with 26 points -- missed a three-pointer as time expired.

The Heat also signed Shandon Anderson, waived last week by the New York Knicks. He had two points and two assists in 11 minutes.


Sacramento 101, Denver 89 -- Brad Miller had 26 points and nine rebounds at Sacramento to lead the Kings to their second straight victory after a 1-4 start.

Carmelo Anthony had 28 points as Denver lost its 16th straight game in Sacramento, dating to Jan. 7, 1996.

Seattle 118, Memphis 113 -- Ray Allen scored a season-high 34 points and the SuperSonics overcame a 21-point deficit with 3:50 left in the third quarter to prevail at Seattle.

The SuperSonics won their sixth consecutive game after an opening-night loss to the Clippers.


Pau Gasol had 25 points for Memphis.

Philadelphia 96, Orlando 87 -- Allen Iverson had 29 points and 12 assists to lead the 76ers at Philadelphia.

Iverson had five assists in the third quarter, including two straight -- on baskets by Marc Jackson and Andre Iguodala -- that snapped a tie game and led a decisive 17-9 run.

Grant Hill led the Magic with 18 points.
