DALLAS (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki scored a club-record 29 of his 40 points during a frantic fourth-quarter comeback and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Utah Jazz 96-85 on Tuesday night.

Nowitzki broke the franchise record of 24 points in any quarter set by Mark Aguirre against Denver on March 24, 1984.

Dallas was down 72-56 after Utah's Wes Matthews hit a layup with
9:51 left. The Mavericks then trailed by 13 before Nowitzki's three-point play triggered a 19-6 run capped by his layup with 2:41 remaining to tie it at 83.

Nowitzki's inside basket on Dallas' next possession put the Mavericks in front for good, 85-83 with 2:05 left.

Deron Williams scored 22 points and Mehmet Okur added 14 points and 14 rebounds for Utah.
