Damon Stoudamire, Mike Bibby, Jason Terry. At Arizona, the point guards just keep coming. But for Terry, it's different. While he might be the best college point guard in the country, he had to settle for being the Wildcats' sixth man before he finally got a chance as a senior. "I think it will be a great lesson for us to be able to use with other people," coach Lute Olson said. "Persistence will pay off in the end, and being a team player pays off."

Poor Jason Terry. A week after Detroit's Brandon Knight was mocked far and wide all over social media forĀ  getting laid out on a dunk by Clippers' center DeAndre Jordan, now it's Terry's turn. And for the Boston Celtics guard, it might be even worse because the guy who threw down the monster jam at his expense was the Miami Heat's LeBron James, a megastar whose name gets searched on a regular basis even when he doesn't produce a highlight of the year. In a sequence that started at the 5:27 mark of the second quarter, Terry stripped the ball from Miami's Dwyane Wade, who instantly stole the ball back.

DALLAS --Dirk Nowitzki overcame a slow shooting start to finish with 22 points, including the go-ahead basket, and the Dallas Mavericks stretched their winning streak to nine in a row with a 112-109 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. With veteran point guard Jason Kidd getting a night off for the Mavericks, who played their 10th game in 16 days since the All-Star break, Jason Terry had 26 points and rookie Rodrigue Beaubois tied his season high with 17. Nowitzki missed his first five field goals before finally sinking a 17-footer with eight minutes left in third quarter.

One of the Lakers' 7-footers probably now has Mike Brown's blessing to take even more three-pointers. Pau Gasol made a pair of three-pointers in overtime, including a controversial basket in which teammate Matt Barnes appeared to touch the rim, to help the Lakers pull out a 112-108 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday at Staples Center. The Mavericks had a chance to tie or go ahead in the final seconds, but Barnes contested Jason Terry's driving layup that hit the bottom of the rim and the Lakers' Metta World Peace grabbed the rebound.

Jason Terry and the Arizona Wildcats are making a habit of having things go their way in games decided in the final seconds. Terry, the Pacific 10's leading scorer, got six of his 25 points in the final 1:52 as No. 10-ranked Arizona State withstood a late Washington State comeback for an 81-79 victory on Saturday at Pullman, Wash. Arizona, 16-4 overall and 8-3 in conference, won its sixth game by two points or fewer--with Terry scoring the decisive points three times.

Jason Terry made a go-ahead basket with 1:09 remaining and followed with two free throws in the final seconds to give Dallas an 80-77 victory over the Houston Rockets on Thursday night, extending the Mavericks' winning streak to nine games. Luther Head had a shot in the lane with about six seconds remaining to give the Rockets the lead, but it bounced out. The Rockets were forced to foul Terry with 4.2 seconds left and he made both shots to extend the lead.

Maybe it was the shoes? Jason Terry missed all nine of his shots in the first round against Nicholls State, blaming the performance on his socks. His trademark "Cats" knee-highs had been left in Arizona. He wasn't taking any chances this week. "I packed them myself this time," said Terry, a 6-foot-2 junior. "I packed four pairs. The equipment guy forgot them last time. He still has a job." So does Terry, despite going 0 for 5 from the field while wearing his socks Thursday.

Reporting from Dallas -- Ramon Sessions didn't start Wednesday's game against Dallas, but it appeared to be only a matter of time before he overtook Steve Blake. As in, one more game. Sessions had 17 points and nine assists in the Lakers' 109-93 victory over the Mavericks at American Airlines Center . It was Sessions' fourth game with the Lakers but he already looked plenty familiar with the offense. He made seven of eight shots and also took five rebounds in 28 minutes.

The third of the Clippers' back-to-back-to-back games came Wednesday night against the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks, a night after L.A. was embarrassed in Utah. The Clippers were challenged by their coach to put forth a more energized effort than they displayed against the Jazz on Tuesday night. After a series of late-game mishaps by Chauncey Billups, the veteran guard delivered for the Clippers with a game-winning three-pointer that lifted his team to a 91-89 victory over Dallas.

Reporting from Dallas -- First things first. This isn't a return to the Mav-wrecks era, when bad things happened to an ineffective Dallas franchise, most notably zero championships in 30 years of existence until last June. It's not like Big D now stands for Doubtful. Or Disastrous. Or Defenseless, though a peek at some box scores a few weeks ago might provide evidence of that. It's more about defending a championship that came out of nowhere seven months ago, arriving almost too quickly to be true, with the snap of fingers by the alleged basketball lords.

Reporting from Miami Dirk Nowitzki threw a fist in the air and flashed the smile he had been waiting 13 years to display. After shouldering much of the blame for years of Dallas disappointments, he will finally have his ring and vindication. Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks claimed their first championship with a 105-95 victory over the Miami Heat on Sunday in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. They did it by winning the last three games, including the clincher in Miami. "I couldn't believe it," Nowitzki said when he realized victory was assured.

One of their stars is limping (Dwyane Wade, bruised hip) and the other keeps facing questions of shrinking in the fourth quarter and struggling under the pressure of the Finals (LeBron James, bruised ego)

STARTING GUARDS Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher keep moving along, and both played well on defense and offense in the first-round series against the New Orleans Hornets. They bring a wealth of playoff experience. Bryant still is dealing with an injured left ankle. Jason Kidd and DeShawn Stevenson started for the Mavericks in the first round against the Portland Trail Blazers, but Jason Terry played more minutes (33.2 per game) than Stevenson and is the team's second-leading scorer (17.3 points per game)

Story lines shift fast in the intensely and closely contested NBA Finals between the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat. From the pregame focus on LeBron James' struggles to match his star power, Game 5 careened to the Heat trying to compensate for a bruised hip suffered by Dwyane Wade. Ultimately, it was all about the scrappy and hot-shooting Mavericks seizing control with a 112-103 victory Thursday and a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. Miami had no answer for an inspired opponent that collectively caught fire and shot 57%. The Mavericks made 13 of 19 three-point shots with six players contributing.

The Miami Heat has bigger problems than the disappearance of LeBron James. The entire team has gone missing. Just when it looked like it couldn't get any worse, it did, Dwyane Wade limping in and out of the lineup as the Heat moved within a loss of Miami mourning. In the series that won't stop spitting out subplots, the Dallas Mavericks kept taking it to the Heat, this time a 112-103 victory Thursday for a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals. The Mavericks are a victory away from the first championship of their 31-year existence.
