Mayo scores 30, Mavs top Bobcats again, 126-99
DALLAS 126, CHARLOTTE 99

By SCHUYLER DIXON
AP Sports Writer

DALLAS (AP) -- After Vince Carter pumped up the crowd, O.J. Mayo
kept knocking down shots.



Mayo scored 30 points, including a career-high seven 3-pointers,
and Carter got the fans going in Dallas' home opener with a
powerful dunk and high-flying block to help the Mavericks remain
unbeaten against Charlotte with a 126-99 victory on Saturday
night.



"He was locked in," Carter said of Mayo. "He was worried about
his shot a couple of days ago, and even early in the game. And I
just said, `Just shoot. Just shoot it like you're 5 for 5
instead of 1 for 5."'



Mayo fed off Carter, too. He had a three-point play and his
first 3-pointer less than a minute after Carter's emphatic
first-quarter dunk - reminiscent of his "Vinsanity" days - over
Bobcats center Bismack Biyombo.



Carter then brought fans to their feet again by chasing down
Kemba Walker and sending his breakaway layup attempt into the
stands in the second quarter.



Dallas, which improved to 16-0 all-time against Charlotte,
trailed 53-52 when Mayo put the Mavericks ahead for good on a
3-pointer with 1:01 left in the first half. Shawn Marion
followed with a three-point play, and Darren Collison hit a
running 34-footer at the buzzer for a 61-53 lead.



Collison started the second half with another 3-pointer, and
Mayo finished the 24-8 run with a 3 that made it 76-61. The
Mavericks scored 36 points in the third quarter after getting
outscored by Utah 37-13 in that period in their first loss
Thursday.



"Once we got on the plane, a couple of us popped in the film and
saw that our energy, effort, we were so casual during the entire
third quarter, so we wanted to come out with an attack mentality
and really just get after it," Mayo said.



Carter had 18 points, and the 14-year veteran was 4 of 8 from
3-point range. The Mavs had 16 3-pointers as Rick Carlisle
became the third coach to win 200 games with Dallas. Don Nelson
(339) and original Mavericks coach Dick Motta (329) are the
others.



"You make 16 3s, you're not going to lose many games, and it was
a bit of a deodorant for some of our other transgressions,"
Carlisle said. "We look to make strides, mild as they may be,
and get better."



Ramon Sessions led Charlotte with 22 points. Former Mavericks
center Brendan Haywood had 14 points and 11 rebounds.



Dallas center Chris Kaman made his debut as a reserve. He got
off to a slow start after missing two weeks with a strained
right calf, but he was a different player in the second half. He
made all five of his shots in the third quarter, including an
alley-oop dunk on one of Collison's 10 assists, and finished
with 16 points on 8-of-9 shooting.



"I missed the last four preseason games and the first two, so
I'm kind of like a new player out there," said Kaman, expected
to be a critical component as the Mavericks try to hold on until
injured star Dirk Nowitzki returns. "I'm just trying to fit in
where I can and do what I can do."



Collison also had 18 points.



Former Charlotte coach Larry Brown, now at SMU after he was
fired by the Bobcats two years ago, watched courtside as the
Bobcats fell behind 31-19 after the first quarter before going
on a 17-4 run for a 36-35 lead. Sessions had eight points during
the spurt, including the go-ahead bucket.



"It was a wonderful first half," Charlotte coach Mike Dunlap
said. "But unfortunately in the third quarter we gave up 36
points, so we hang our hat on our defense so we know where to
start."



Carlisle wasted no time going to Kaman, calling on him less than
two minutes into the game. Carter's entrance about five minutes
later had a much bigger impact. After his big dunk, he hit a
3-pointer in the final seconds of the first quarter.



"I think they just move the ball," Dunlap said of the Mavericks.
"There are three or four teams that we show film of and the
Mavericks is one of them. They call it their flow offense. They
do a great job of moving the ball to find the open shooter."



Walker had 10 points and was held to 10 shots a night after
scoring a career-high 30 to lead the Bobcats past Indiana in
their opener.



"They played him different, so what he did was he adjusted his
game," Dunlap said. "I really like the way he played. He didn't
force things."



NOTES: Mavericks G Rodrigue Beaubois was inactive after twisting
his left ankle in practice Friday. . Shawn Marion had two blocks
on Haywood in the first quarter. The Mavericks used the amnesty
clause to dump Haywood in the offseason. . Bobcats G Gerald
Henderson left in the third quarter with a left foot sprain and
didn't return. . Mavericks TV announcer Mark Followill is out
indefinitely after getting injured in a bike accident Saturday
in Dallas. He's been with the Mavericks for 12 seasons. ...
Dallas is the only NBA team that hasn't lost to Charlotte.
