NBA: Dallas 102, Sacramento 100

SACRAMENTO, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Jason Terry finished off a 22-point effort by making two free throws with 4 seconds left Wednesday, wrapping up a 102-100 win for Dallas over Sacramento.

Terry's foul shots gave the Mavericks a four-point lead and ensured their 10th straight victory. Despite the long winning streak, Dallas is 6 1/2 games behind San Antonio in the Southwest Division.

The game was close throughout the fourth period and Dallas had only a two-point lead when Terry missed a 3-point attempt with 31 seconds to play.

Tyreke Evans then failed to connect on a driving layup that would have tied the score with 12 seconds to go and Dirk Nowitzki rebounded for Dallas. That led to Terry being fouled and his two free throws clinched the win.

Omri Casspi tipped in a missed shot for the Kings with a second remaining to account for the final score.

J.J. Barea added 20 points off the bench for Dallas and Jason Kidd had 14. Nowitzki managed just 10 points, 13 below his season average.

Sacramento, which has lost four straight, got 20 points from Samuel Dalembert.
