The Grizzlies Roar Over the Mavericks

O.J. Mayo scored 18 of his 21 points in the second half, and the Memphis Grizzlies snapped a 13-game losing skid to the Dallas Mavericks with a 102-82 victory Sunday.

Marc Gasol had 19 points for Memphis, and Rudy Gay and Hakim Warrick added 18 apiece.

Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks with 28 points, hitting 11 of 21 shots. Jason Terry scored 18 and Josh Howard finished with 12 points, but was 5-of-12 from the field.

Mayo's scramble for the ball and flip to Warrick for a dunk with 3:36 left gave the Grizzlies 95-80 lead with 3:36 to play. Memphis' lead would grow to 22 on Mayo's final 3-pointer.

Memphis outscored the Mavericks 26-14 in the final period to pull away.
