Magic drought ends

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Mavs' run reached 19-0 before Orlando's Jameer Nelson hit a jumper.

Those kind of runs just don't happen often on the road against legitimate contenders.

But it guarantees nothing for the Mavs, who called a timeout after the Magic scored again the next possession.

Time for Dirk Nowitzki, who watched the first few minutes of the fourth quarter from the bench, to get back to work.

Mavs 77, Magic 73 with 7:58 to go.
