PHILADELPHIA -- Jason Terry hustled as he saw the loose ball rolling toward midcourt. In the final minute of a three-point game, first one to the ball could score the bucket that made the difference in the outcome. Terry pounced and had an uncontested breakaway dunk, and another Dallas win was in the record book. "That one possession signified what that game meant to us," Terry said. Terry scored 30 points, Jason Kidd had a triple-double, and the Mavericks won their seventh straight game, 101-93 over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. Dirk Nowitzki added 22 points for the Mavericks, who have won a whopping 17 of 18 games that shot them into second place in the Western Conference. "Shoot the ball, share the ball," Nowitzki said. Sounds like a simple formula, one the Mavs have perfected during this sizzling stretch. Terry used near-flawless shooting over the second and third quarters to give the Mavs the lead, then sealed the win late in the fourth with the big hustling dunk where he waved his arms in celebration. Kidd had 13 points, 13 assists, 10 rebounds and no turnovers for the 107th triple-double of his career. "We just keep coming, wave after wave," Kidd said. The Sixers gave the Mavericks all they could handle as they tried to move two games above .500 for the first time this season. Jodie Meeks led the Sixers with 16 points. Coach Doug Collins called this game a test for the playoffs because the Mavs were the type of talented team, like the Heat, the seventh-place Sixers could face in a first-round series. They went the distance, but couldnt match Terry, Kidd and Co. and their four-game winning streak was snapped. "We played toe-to-toe with one of the best, one of the hottest teams in the league," Collins said. "Im proud of them for that. Our guys are doing this for the first time. Theyve been at it for a while, theyve been here a lot of times. That showed tonight." When the Sixers closed within one with 3:56 left, Terry -- who else? -- hit another jumper that made him 12 of 16 from the floor. He was open on the next possession, but dished to Kidd for a 3 and a 92-88 lead. The Sixers showed the competitive drive that helped them make the rare turnaround from 10 games under .500 to a winning record when Meeks three made it 92-91. That was as close as theyd get. Meeks missed a driving baseline layup and Terry recovered for the breakaway dunk that sealed the win. He waved his arms in celebration, high-fiving teammates after the highlight-reel play. The Sixers flopped in the waning moments from the free throw line and made only 14 of 24 overall. Andre Iguodala scored 15 points and Jrue Holiday had 14 for the Sixers. Dallas enthusiasm waned when centre Tyson Chandler left late in the first half with a sprained right ankle. Chandler, averaging 10.5 points and 9.5 rebounds, grabbed his right ankle after he collapsed to the court trying to block a shot. He briefly stood and grabbed his knee before going back down. Chandler limped off the court and headed straight to the locker room. Shawn Marion had 10 points and 10 rebounds to help the Mavericks win the battle between two of the best benches in the league. Brendan Haywood scored seven points and will likely start for Chandler on Friday against Indiana. Dallas Rick Carlisle had no update on Chandlers injury. For a spell, the Sixers looked every bit as dangerous as they did last month in their 77-71 victory over the San Antonio Spurs, who have the best record in the NBA. They refused to let the Mavericks take them out of the game with a serious run. When Terry went 5 for 5 for 11 points in the third, the Sixers scored their own big buckets to keep pace. Nowitzki fumbled the ball and Iguodala recovered, bursting all the way for a one-handed jam that tied it 69-all. Speights driving dunk off another Dallas turnover knotted the game at 77. But theres a reason the Mavericks are a serious threat to win it all. Led by Terry, they wore down the scrappy Sixers and had too much experienced talent in the fourth to let the Sixers take the lead. "Good teams can crank it down on you late, and thats what they did to us tonight," Collins said. Nowitzki and Terry shot a combined 22 of 33 from the floor. Terry had the hot touch from the start with an 11-point second quarter that helped Dallas take a 51-44 lead into halftime. "I havent seen him in a zone like that in a long time," Nowitzki said. "He showed us the whole package tonight. It was fun to watch." Notes: Kidd had his second triple-double of the season and is third on the NBAs career list. ...

MEDELLIN, Colombia -- Brazil defeated Spain on penalties Sunday in a match that, despite being only a quarterfinal, will be viewed by many as the "real final" between the two best teams in the Under-20 World Cup In the end it came down to chance with Brazil winning 4-2 in the shootout after a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes and a 2-2 stalemate after 30 minutes of extra time. In Sundays other semifinal, France defeated Nigeria 3-2 in extra time. That sets up Wednesdays semifinals with Brazil facing Mexico in Pereira, and France up against Portugal in Medellin. The winners play for the title on Saturday in Bogota. Brazil has won the title four times and Portugal has claimed two. Mexico and France will be trying to break through for their first. Spain coach Julen Lopetegui made it clear he thought the better team lost. The Iberians led in possession, outshot Brazil 26-17 and took 12 corners to Brazils 5. "I feel very proud of these kids," Lopetegui said. "I think overall they were better than Brazil and deserved to advance. Today, the best team in the World Cup is out." In truth, there was nothing to choose from. The two best teams in the field thrilled the crowd with end-to-end football, possession passing and counterattacking to keep the other side off balance. Spain came back twice, and Brazil was rock solid to pull through on penalties. "As we anticipated, it was a very difficult match against a very top team -- strong and excellent," Brazil coach Ney Franco said. "We had great penalty takers and a keeper who made the difference." Willian gave Brazil the lead in the 35th minute, before Rodrigo -- who was born in Brazil -- equalized for Spain in the 57th. Brazil went ahead with Dudus goal in extra time, but Spain answered two minutes later thanks to Alvaro Vazquez. Vazquez is the tournaments leading goal scorer with five. First to take its kick, Spain fell behind when its first penalty-taker, Jordi Amat, was stopped by a diving Brazil keeper Gabbriel.dddddddddddd Vazquez also missed Spains fourth penalty when Gabriel kicked the shot away. In the meantime, Brazil converted its four from Casemiro, Henrique, Danilo and Dudu. Mexico is on a roll and will have plenty of motivation against Brazil. Mexicos senior team won the regional Gold Cup title in June, defeating the United States 4-2, and added the Under-17 World Cup title in July, beating Uruguay 2-0 in the final at Aztec stadium in Mexico City. Were it not for the drama of Brazil vs. Spain, Frances 3-2 win over Nigeria in extra time would grab more headlines. Nigeria won its first four matches and was seen by many as a match for Brazil or Spain. France changed that. Level at 1-1 after 90 minutes, Gueida Fofana gave France a 2-1 lead in extra time and Alexandre Lacazette picked up his second goal of the match two minutes later to seal the win. Maduabuchi Ejike scored his second goal in extra time to give Nigeria hope of a comeback, but the west Africans couldnt score again. France should have won in regulation, but Nigeria equalized in the final seconds of second-half stoppage time with a header by Ejike. Lacazette gave France the lead in the 50th with his first goal of the match. This is the first time France has reached the semifinals of the Under-20 World Cup. "This is the achievement of a new generation," France coach Francis Smerecki said. "This showed when Nigeria tied the match. I think we can end up as champions, but we are aware there are some strong rivals." Nigeria came into the match having won its first four decisions and was the higheance managed to slow the Nigerian attack for most of the game, giving up possession but few threatening chancesst scoring team in the tournament. But Fr. The elimination is another disappointment for the Nigerians, who have finished second two times -- in 1989 and 2005. "It is sad to go out like this," Nigeria coach John Obuh said. "We believe this is a game we should have won." wholesale jerseys china ' ' '
