Mavs beat Bucks 106-93 without Nowitzki, CarlisleSubmitted: 12/14/2013
Story By Associated Press

DALLAS - Brandan Wright led Dallas with 19 points in his season debut, Jose Calderon scored 18 and the Mavericks shrugged off the absence of Dirk Nowitzki and coach Rick Carlisle to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 106-93 Saturday night.

Nowitzki and Carlisle missed the game with an undisclosed illness. Carlisle has been fighting an upper respiratory problem since before a four-game road trip that started last week.

Wright, who missed the first 23 games with a shoulder injury, scored seven straight points in a 19-5 run that put Dallas in control, 43-26, early in the second quarter.

John Henson led the Bucks with 18 points and 12 rebounds.

O.J. Mayo, who played despite the recent death of his grandmother, had four points on 1-of-6 shooting in his first game in Dallas since signing with the Bucks as a free agent last summer.
