DALLAS -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 20 points in his return to the lineup and the Dallas Mavericks defeated the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies 105-88 on Wednesday night.

The Mavericks (15-10) have won two straight to equal their season high of five games over .500. Memphis (10-15) has lost five in a row and seven of eight.

Nowitzki added six rebounds, five assists, two steals and one blocked shot. He had four points during a 10-2 run after the Grizzlies cut a 16-point deficit to four in the third quarter.

While the Mavericks got their star forward back following a one-game absence due to a stomach virus, Memphis was without three injured starters.
