DALLAS (Reuters) - The Dallas Mavericks withstood a late charge from the Milwaukee Bucks and hung on for a 108-107 victory Tuesday.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 28 points as the Mavs were subjected to a late Milwaukee run led by forward Carlos Delfino, who made two successive three-pointers to cut the lead to one before missing the potential game-winner as time expired.

Delfino finished with 22 points while Andrew Bogut had a game-high 32 and nine rebounds for the Bucks (18-25).

The Mavericks, with Jason Kidd and Erick Dampier returning to the lineup, built a six-point halftime lead and held on to sweep the season series between the teams.

Jason Terry added 21 points to help Dallas (30-15) extend their Southwest Division lead to four games.
