Dallas Mavericks 86, Orlando Magic 76 - Down 17 early? No big deal for the Mavericks, as they climb out of that hole to knot the game at 39 at halftime and come away with the win to remain undefeated (2-0) in the Orlando league.

Dallas may have been down 13 at the end of the first quarter, but they had a 13 point advantage in the second quarter alone, and then tacked on a 28-17 third quarter to take control of the game after intermission.

Former Marquette guard Dwight Buycks was part of the rocky start for the Mavs, starting out shooting just 1-for-6 early in the second quarter. But the Milwaukee native kept at it, finishing with a game high 20 points on 8-of-19 shooting. Buycks also chipped in four rebounds, two assists, and two steals to the winning effort.

Be sure to check out the NBA.com recap page for a full highlights package along with a solo highlight clip of Buycks making the no-look backwards dish to Christian Wood for the triple.
