Mavs up on Spurs without huge game from Nowitzki

DALLAS (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki had the only miss in a final minute filled with clutch shots by Dallas and San Antonio, topped by Vince Carter's buzzer-beating 3-pointer that gave the Mavericks a Game 3 win.

It was the 7-foot sharpshooter's third straight playoff game with less than 20 points, something that hasn't happened since his first postseason in 2001, also against his rival from South Texas.

Yet the Mavericks have consecutive wins over the top-seeded Spurs after losing 10 in a row to them, and a 2-1 first-round series lead heading into Game 4 on Monday night in Dallas.

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich and Dallas' Rick Carlisle are harping on defensive stops after Carter's improbable shot was the ninth straight possession to end with points in the final 1:37.
