Nowitzki leads Mavs past depleted Grizzlies

DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki gave the Mavericks a boost in his return to the lineup, while the short-handed Grizzlies lost another starter to injury.

Nowitzki scored 20 points after missing a game with a stomach virus and Dallas defeated Memphis 105-88 on Wednesday night.

The Mavericks (15-10) have won two straight to equal their season high of five games over .500. Memphis (10-15) has lost five in a row and seven of eight.

Nowitzki added six rebounds, five assists, two steals and one blocked shot. He scored four points during a 10-2 run after the Grizzlies cut a 16-point deficit to four in the third quarter.

“I didn’t feel great Monday in practice,” the 16-year veteran said. “We didn’t have a game for another two days, so by Tuesday I was a lot better and today I felt fine. I used the break to get healthy.”
