SACRAMENTO, April 6 (UPI) -- A 25-point performance from Shawn Marion Friday and a strong second half brought Dallas a 117-108 victory over Sacramento.

Brandan Wright added 20 points for Dallas and Darren Collison scored 18. Dallas overcame an early nine-point deficit by outscoring the Kings 41-26 in the second period.

Isaiah Thomas led Sacramento with 29 points and Tyreke Evans had 16.

The Mavericks put the game away with a nine-point run in the fourth period, snapping a two-game skid.
