PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- The Dallas Mavericks look to return to last season's form after their first win of the season.

Dallas faces the Portland Trail Blazers in the finale of a three game road trip.

Jerry Stackhouse was 10-of-16 from the floor and added 23 points.

Zach Randolph split a pair of free throws with 2.4 seconds remaining as the Trail Blazers overcame a 27-point deficit en route to an exhilarating 92-91 triumph over the New Orleans Hornets.

Randolph scored 31 points and had 12 rebounds in the win. This was the third consecutive game the power forward had at least 30 points and 10 rebounds.

Reserve Travis Outlaw chipped in 16 points, six rebounds and six blocked shots for Portland.
