Recap: Dallas vs. Washington

Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - O.J. Mayo and Chris Kaman combined for 48 points to lead the Dallas Mavericks to a 107-101 win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.

Mayo poured in a game-high 25 points and Kaman added 23 points and eight boards for the Mavericks, who snapped a three-game skid.

Elton Brand scored 11 and grabbed 12 rebounds and rookie Jae Crowder added 12 points off the bench in the victory.

"It was good to get back in the win column after the past couple of games we had," said Crowder. "We work hard here all the time and it showed with the effort we had tonight."

Jordan Crawford scored 21 points and Kevin Seraphin added 16 points, five rebounds and five assists for the Wizards, who fell to 0-7 on the season and are the only team in the NBA without a win.

"Our record doesn't show how good we really are and we just need to continue to get better every day and keep working hard," said Seraphin.

The Mavs led by 18 entering the fourth quarter, but the Wizards used a 25-10 run to pull within 95-92 with just over five minutes left.

A pair of Darren Collison free throws gave Dallas a six-point edge at 104-98, but Cartier Martin buried a triple with 21.9 seconds left to pull within three.

Following a Dallas timeout, the Mavs took advantage of a Washington mental lapse and threw it into Kaman, who was left alone at the top of the key. The big man wasted several seconds before driving to hoop for a layup. Kaman was fouled on the play and converted the subsequent free throw to push the lead back to six with 17.8 ticks remaining.

Chris Singleton's 3-pointer was off target and the Mavs dribbled out the remaining seconds to secure the win.

Dallas led 23-19 after the first quarter before pushing its spread to 63-45 at the break.

The Mavs led by as many as 22 early in the third period and took an 85-67 lead into the fourth.

Game Notes

Dallas shot 50 percent from the field despite converting just 3-of-11 from beyond the arc ... Washington shot 48.1 percent, but turned it over 17 times.
