MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki overcame a poor shooting night, scoring 28 points and leading a late Dallas rally as the Mavericks got their 50th win of the season with a 106-102 overtime victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

Jason Terry scored 29 points for the Mavericks, who have now won 50 games in each of the last 10 seasons. Jason Kidd had 12 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, and Caron Butler had 11 points and a season-high 13 rebounds.

The teams were tied at 90 at the end of regulation as Nowitzki scored 10 of the Mavericks' final 11 points in the fourth quarter. Nowitzki then had six points in the final 24 seconds of overtime, including all four of his foul shots.

O.J. Mayo led Memphis with 27 points, while Mike Conley scored 25.
