Mavs win 10th straight

| December 8, 2010 8:00 PM

Third-string center Ian Mahinmi had 12 points and a career-high 10 rebounds and fourth-stringer Alexis Ajinca provided quality minutes to help the Dallas Mavericks beat the visiting Golden State Warriors 105-100 on Tuesday night for their 10th straight victory.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, Jason Terry had 20 and Caron Butler 19 - but that's expected. The surprise was the performance by the backup big men, both from France. They were forced into duty because starter Tyson Chandler was home with a stomach ailment and fill-in starter Brendan Haywood got in early foul trouble.

Rockets 97, Pistons 83: Luis Scola had 35 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Rockets past Detroit, ruining Tracy McGrady's return to Houston.

McGrady, who spent 5? seasons with the Rockets, finished with 11 points.

Former Eastern Washington standout Rodney Stuckey had 18 points and five assists for Detroit.

Lakers 115, Wizards 108: Kobe Bryant scored 32 points, Lamar Odom added 24 points and seven rebounds, and host Los Angeles beat Washington.

76ers 117, Cavaliers 97: Thaddeus Young had 26 points and host Philadelphia beat Cleveland.

Trail Blazers 106, Suns 99: Wesley Matthews scored 24 points and host Portland rallied past Phoenix.

Hawks 116, Nets 101: Josh Smith scored 34 points and Atlanta beat visiting New Jersey.

Bobcats 100, Nuggets 98: Stephen Jackson scored 23 points and host Charlotte held off Denver to deny Nuggets coach George Karl his 1,000th NBA win.
