SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki had 27 points and 10 rebounds to help the Dallas Mavericks coast to a 105-82 victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.
Tyson Chandler added 15 points and 13 rebounds, and Monta Ellis scored 13 as the Mavericks bounced back from a loss to Portland one night earlier. Nowitzki shot 11 of 18, including 5 for 8 from 3-point range.
Alec Burks led the Jazz with 14 points. Gordon Hayward had 12, and Trey Burke and Dante Exum added 11 apiece for Utah, which struggled on both ends of the court.
The Jazz committed 23 turnovers, and the Mavericks had a 32-9 advantage in points off turnovers. That kept Utah from ever threatening to get back into the game after halftime.
