PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

Deron Williams had a season-high 30 points and the Mavericks defeated the Trail Blazers 115-112 in overtime Tuesday night in Wesley Matthews' first trip back to Portland since signing with Dallas as a free agent.

Dirk Nowitzki added 28 points and Matthews finished with 18 points in his return as the Mavs snapped a four-game losing streak on the road.

Matthews hit consecutive 3-pointers to pull the Mavericks to 89-85 as Dallas closed in on Portland in regulation. Nowitzki's 3-pointer narrowed it to 96-94 before his tip shot tied it, and Damian Lillard missed a 3 at the buzzer to send the game into overtime.
