DALLAS -

Dirk Nowitzki shook off an early shoulder issue to finish with 18 points, New Orleans All-Star Anthony Davis was knocked out of the game with a similar problem and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Pelicans 108-89 Wednesday night.

Nowitzki went to the locker room 31 seconds into the game holding his left shoulder but emerged a short time later and returned to the game. He even had a spin move and finished with a left-handed finger roll in the first half.
    
Davis, the leading scorer and rebounder for the Pelicans, was holding his sprained left shoulder on his way to play defense and didn't return after leaving the game during a New Orleans timeout with 4:13 left in the first half.
