Dallas went back up on Terry’s jumper at the 6:13 mark before Patrick Mills drove for a layup and Aldridge scored another four points to make it 77-72.

Terry would not let the Mavericks lose, assisting on Chandler’s layup before draining a 3-pointer to tie it at the 2:33 mark. Terry grabbed a defensive rebound and nailed another jumper to give Dallas the lead with 1:31 remaining.

DeShawn Stevenson and Wesley Matthews traded 3-pointers before Terry hit another shot to seal it with 12 seconds left.
