Mavericks hold off LeBron for victory

The Dallas Mavericks began anew. LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers wish they could start over. Jason Terry scored 24 points, Dirk Nowitzki added 15 and the Mavericks, whose NBA title pursuit last season ended with a stunning first-round exit against Golden State, opened 2007-08 with a 92-74 victory over the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.
