Salt Lake City, Utah -- Dirk Nowitzki had 31 points and eight rebounds and the Dallas Mavericks pulled away for a 108-101 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.

Monta Ellis added 16 points and 11 assists and Devin Harris scored 12 off the bench for the Mavericks, who snapped a three-game road losing streak, bouncing back from a 23-point loss to Golden State Tuesday to open a three-game trek.

Trey Burke scored 20 points and Enes Kanter had 18 points and 11 rebounds off the bench for the Jazz, who fell to 1-7 in their last eight games.

The Mavericks made five of their six 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and shot 60 percent overall in the period to pull away. They are 3-0 against the Jazz this season, scoring at least 103 points in each game, and have won four in a row in the series.

The Jazz lost the opener of a three-game homestand Monday against Atlanta and didn't lead in the last 9 1/2 minutes of this one despite it being close for much of the game.

"There were some good things we did," said Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. "We lost to a team fighting for a playoff spot."
