Quick Take: Mayo, Mavericks Dominate Blazers (Dallas Mavericks 2012-2013)



The Mavericks did a repeat of a very solid game against the Bobcats, but this time against a very good Trail Blazer team leading to a decisive 114-91 romp.   Fans may have experienced a serious case of deja vu, witnessing O. J. Mayo scoring his second straight 30+ point game including 6-of-8 from downtown, a second straight double-double for Darren Collison and both Chris Kaman and Brandan Wright sinking virtually any field goal attempt.   Overall the Mavericks continued their torrid shooting (61.5% and 50% from three-point range) as well as holding the Trail Blazers to only 39.4%, including limiting rookie point guard Damian Lillard to 13 points on 2-13 shooting, his lowest output of the season.

Dallas jumped out to an early lead but Portland only trailed by 2 at the half.  Dallas dominated the third quarter and pulled away late as Dominque Jones had perhaps his most effective game as a Maverick in leading the team down the stretch.

LaMarcus Aldridge and Wes Matthews led the Trail Blazers with 20 points apiece.
