DALLAS (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki had 32 points, 19 rebounds and six assists and Dallas finally made New Orleans look like playoff novices, winning Game 3 to get right back into this series.
Chris Paul of the Hornets, the first player ever to have at least 30 points and 10 assists in his first two playoff games, finished with 16 points on 4-of-18 shooting. He still had 10 assists.
David West was 3-of-16 through three quarters. He wound up 6-of-20 with 14 points and his late surge helped New Orleans cut a 17-point deficit to 90-83 with 2 minutes left.
Jannero Pargo of New Orleans had 30 points, his most this season and most ever in a playoff game.
Jason Terry replaced Jerry Stackhouse in Dallas' starting lineup and responded with 22 points and six assists but his biggest contribution was his defense on Paul.
Game 4 is Sunday night in Dallas, where the Hornets haven't won since January 1998.
