MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki overcame foul trouble to score 25 points in 27 minutes, helping the Dallas Mavericks outlast the Minnesota in a 108-105 victory on Monday night.

Nowitzki picked up his fourth foul early in the third quarter, and Brian Cardinal stepped in to score a season-high 12 points for the Mavericks in their 19th win in 21 games.

Kevin Love had 23 points and 17 rebounds for Minnesota. He posted his 51st double-double in a row, which is tied with Moses Malone in 1978-79 for the longest streak since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976.

Michael Beasley added 20 points and nine rebounds for the worst team in the Western Conference, who gave the powerful Mavericks all they could handle.
