Kidd's Triple-Double Fuels Mavericks Comeback In 111-103 Win

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Jason Kidd's triple-double fueled a furious Maverick comeback in the second half to force overtime, as Dallas downed Atlanta, 111-103, at Philips Arena for a season-high sixth straight win.

Kidd recorded 19 points, 17 assists and 16 rebounds to help the visitors overcome a 15-point deficit and hand the Hawks only their seventh loss at home all season.

Dirk Nowitzki poured in a game-best 37 points on 15-of-26 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds. His five points led the Mavs in overtime, while Kidd hoisted three of his four three-pointers in the final minutes of regulation to force extra time.

Jason Terry chipped in 17 points and Shawn Marion 14 to help offset the absence of Caron Butler, who missed a second straight game after suffering an allergic reaction to a medication.

Joe Johnson totaled 27 points and 10 assists for Atlanta, which fell to 22-7 at home and saw a two-game win streak broken. Josh Smith had 18 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists in a losing cause, while Jamal Crawford also scored 18.
