After skidding to their first three-game losing streak of the season, the Dallas Mavericks returned home hungry for a win in front of their fans.
Welcoming in the Portland Trail Blazers, the Mavs tried to avoid a fourth straight loss while attempting to take the season series 2-1. The Mavs also looked to avenge a 127-111 home defeat at the hands of the Trail Blazers back on Jan. 18.
But, after building up a 30-point lead in the first half, the Mavericks would find themselves down by as many as seven down the stretch. Still, the Mavericks (37-26) found a way to end their skid, staging a late-game comeback and an 11-0 run to close the game in order to walk off their home floor with a 103-98 victory.
