WASHINGTON (AP) — Wesley Matthews scored 28 of his season-high 36 points in the second half and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Washington Wizards 116-104 Sunday night.

Matthews made 12 3-pointers and tied his career high for scoring.

He hit 10 3-pointers overall and eight in the second half. The Mavericks took the lead early in the third quarter and pulled away in the fourth.

John Wall led Washington with 28 points but injured his right leg colliding with Dallas' Jeremy Evans and was helped off the court with 1:14 left.

Dirk Nowitzki had 19 points and Raymond Felton added 11 points and 10 rebounds. Deron Williams helped with 11 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.

The injury-plagued Wizards dressed just 10 players for the third time in eight days.
