DALLAS, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Jason Terry scored 34 points, including four in overtime, and Dallas recovered from a big blown lead to edge San Antonio 101-100.

He also hauled down 13 rebounds as the Mavs stayed hot with their fifth win in six games.

San Antonio fell despite 19 points off the bench from Gary Neal, who led a contingent of reserves that pulled the Spurs back into the game.

Tim Duncan, Danny Green, Richard Jefferson each contributed 12 points for San Antonio.
