Kidd Ties Season Best with 17 Dimes

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 24 (AP) -- Jason Kidd tied his season high with 17 assists in his third game with Dallas and Dirk Nowitzki scored 29 points to lead the Mavericks to a 99-83 win over Minnesota on Sunday night.

Jason Terry added 20 points and Josh Howard 14 as the Mavericks sent the last-place Timberwolves to their seventh loss in eight games.

Kidd might not be scoring as much anymore -- he had a quiet 12 points on nine shots -- but he still has the sweet-touch passes and ability to create shots for his teammates.

After only five assists in his Mavericks debut Wednesday, Kidd has 32 in his last two games since last week's blockbuster trade. He had all but seven of his team's assists against the Timberwolves.
