DALLAS, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Jason Terry scored 21 points Saturday and the Dallas Mavericks used a smothering defense to snuff out Sacramento 99-60.

Dirk Nowitzki contributed 14 points, and Jason Kidd returned from a four-game injury absence with five points, six assists and six steals for the Mavericks.

Dallas limited the Kings to just 25.6 percent shooting from the field and 23 first-half points in racking up its seventh win in eight games.

DeMarcus Cousins led Sacramento with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
