The Dallas Mavericks have continued their winning ways, taking down the Detroit Pistons on the road 100-86. Dallas won a road game for the first time this season, and are back at .500 for the first time this season after losing 4 of their first 5 games.

Nowitzki scored 18 points, Shawn Marion had 14 points and Vince Carter added 11 more for the Mavericks. Nowitzki has been in a rough patch the last two games going 5 for 22. He broke his slum and went 9 of 10 against Detroit. Not only did Nowitzki have a great night, the entire Mavericks team did, shooting 55% on the night.

Coach Rick Carlisle told the AP that "It’s a road win that we haven’t had yet, so that’s really important to us, Momentum has been elusive for us, so we respect how tough it is competitively in this league right now, but our goal is to build on this.”

The Mavs appear to be getting back into championship form. If they can hold it together a repeat is not out of the question.
