Nowitzki scores 31 in Mavericks' win over Pacers
Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle is no stranger to walking out of Conseco Fieldhouse as a victor.
Unfortunately for his former team, the Indiana Pacers, it came at their expense.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 31 points, Jason Terry had 17 and Kris Humphries added 12 points and 11 rebounds as the streaking Mavericks coasted to their fifth straight road victory, 113-92 on Friday night.
The outcome was especially sweet for Carlisle, who coached the Pacers from 2003-07 and led the team to three straight postseason appearances. Dallas, which leads the Southwest Division, improved to 12-4.
