The Mavericks scored on five consecutive possessions to push the lead back to six, 90-84, with two minutes left. The Coyotes had a chance to tie in the closing seconds, but Myles missed a long 3 from the top of the key and CJ Carter secured the rebound and hit two free throws with 1.7 seconds left to end the game.
