DALLAS (AP) O.J. Mayo scored 30 points and the Dallas Mavericks remained unbeaten against the Charlotte Bobcats with a 126-99 victory on Saturday night.

Mayo made a career-high seven 3-pointers, including one that put the Mavericks ahead for good late in the second quarter and another that capped a 24-8 run that made it 76-61 in the third.

Dallas improved to 16-0 all-time against Charlotte.

Chris Kaman made his Mavericks debut as a reserve, but the spark off the bench came from Vince Carter. The 14-year veteran got the crowd going with a powerful dunk and did it again later with a spectacular blocked shot.

Ramon Sessions led Charlotte with 22 points.
