CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Seth Curry scored 26 points in his return to Charlotte, and the Dallas Mavericks cruised to a 116-100 win over the Hornets.
Curry made his first 10 shots from the field, including six 3-pointers to help the Mavericks snap a two-game losing streak.
Willie Cauley-Stein added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Mavericks, who played without Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.
Doncic missed his sixth straight game with a right ankle sprain, while Porzingis rested a sore left knee against the floundering Hornets.
Dallas led 31-10 after the first quarter and led by as many as 31 in the second half.
