              === Mavs down Wizards to keep Washington winless ===
 
 Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - O.J. Mayo and Chris Kaman combined for 48 points
 to  lead the Dallas  Mavericks to a 107-101 win over the Washington Wizards on
 Wednesday.
 
 Mayo  poured  in a  game-high 25  points and  Kaman added  23 points and eight
 boards for the Mavericks, who snapped a three-game skid.
 
 Elton  Brand scored 11 and grabbed 12 rebounds and rookie Jae Crowder added 12
 points off the bench in the victory.
 
 "It  was good to  get back in the win column after the past couple of games we
 had,"  said  Crowder. "We work hard  here all the  time and it showed with the
 effort we had tonight."
 
 Jordan  Crawford  scored 21  points and  Kevin Seraphin  added 16 points, five
 rebounds  and five assists  for the Wizards, who fell to 0-7 on the season and
 are the only team in the NBA without a win.
 
 "Our  record doesn't show  how good we really are and we just need to continue
 to get better every day and keep working hard," said Seraphin.
 
 The  Mavs led by  18 entering the fourth quarter, but the Wizards used a 25-10
 run to pull within 95-92 with just over five minutes left.
 
 A  pair of Darren Collison free throws gave Dallas a six-point edge at 104-98,
 but  Cartier Martin  buried a  triple with  21.9 seconds  left to  pull within
 three.
 
 Following  a  Dallas timeout, the  Mavs took  advantage of a Washington mental
 lapse  and threw it  into Kaman, who was left alone at the top of the key. The
 big  man wasted several  seconds before driving to hoop for a layup. Kaman was
 fouled  on the  play and converted the  subsequent free throw to push the lead
 back to six with 17.8 ticks remaining.
 
 Chris  Singleton's 3-pointer  was off  target and  the Mavs  dribbled out  the
 remaining seconds to secure the win.
 
 Dallas led 23-19 after the first quarter before pushing its spread to 63-45 at
 the break.
 
 The Mavs led by as many as 22 early in the third period and took an 85-67 lead
 into the fourth.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Dallas  shot  50 percent from  the field  despite converting just 3-of-11 from
 beyond the arc ... Washington shot 48.1 percent, but turned it over 17 times.
