NBA ROUNDUP Saturday's games

Mavericks 111, Kings 97
DALLAS -- Steve Nash scored 28 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 26 points and 21 rebounds, and Dallas got plenty of help from its newcomers. Nash shot 10-for-13 in the game and scored 15 straight points in a 22-6 third-quarter run that put the Mavericks ahead to stay. Nowitzki had his second straight game with more than 20 points and 20 rebounds. Raef LaFrentz had 14 points and six rebounds in his Dallas debut, while Nick Van Exel had eight points and eight assists.
Magic 105, 76ers 87

Orlando won its fourth straight home game and fifth of sixth overall. Allen Iverson had 32 points on 11-of-30 shooting to lead short-handed Philadelphia. Dikembe Mutumbo added 12 points. The 76ers were without starting forward Derrick Coleman and guard Aaron McKie, who have combined for 27 points a game.
