DALLAS -- What Jason Kidd hit the San Antonio Spurs with on Saturday night was something the I-35 rivals didn't see coming.
Kidd contributed 14 points, 10 assists and five rebounds to help the Dallas Mavericks to a pulsating 106-99 triumph over the rival Spurs at American Airlines Center. The 18-year veteran was 5-of-9 from the field, including 4-of-5 from three-point range.
It was Kidd's dead-eye target practice from beyond the three-point arc that caught the Spurs off-guard.
"He shot the ball well, and we didn't expect that,'' Spurs point guard Tony Parker said. "I give him credit on having one of his biggest offensive games of the year.
"He played great tonight by making shots and getting his teammates the ball.'' This was the first double-double of the season for Kidd, who fell one point shy of his season high of 15 points he scored against the New York Knicks on Mar. 6. "Everybody came to play tonight,'' Kidd said. "I think everybody stepped up.''
