PORTLAND -- Brandon Roy's go-ahead bank shot with 39 seconds left capped Portland's 23-point second-half comeback and the Blazers beat the Dallas Mavericks 84-82 on Saturday to even the first-round playoff series at two games each.

Roy, who had struggled to find his place on the team since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on both knees in January, had 18 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter alone.

Both teams have held home court in their best-of-seven playoff series, which heads to Dallas on Monday.

Dirk Nowitzki had 20 points to lead the Mavericks.

Dallas led 64-41 in the third quarter before the Blazers started to rally behind Roy.
