DALLAS (AP)- Keyon Dooling scored 13 points, including a go-ahead 3-pointer before consecutive baskets by Ed Davis, and the Memphis Grizzlies rallied to keep alive their chance of hosting a first-round playoff series with a 103-97 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.
Jerryd Bayless had 19 points and the Grizzlies' reserves accounted for 64 points - all 35 in the decisive fourth quarter.
Dooling, who signed April 3 as a free agent, had only 12 points combined his first five games.
Dirk Nowitzki had 26 points for the Mavs, who had finally reached .500 for the first time since Dec. 12 with a win at New Orleans on Sunday night.
The Mavericks (40-41) already knew they were going to miss the playoffs for the first time in 13 seasons. Now they have to win their season finale to avoid a losing record.
