ATLANTA (AP) - Darren Collison scored 24 points and the hot-shooting Dallas Mavericks set season highs for points in a half and a game while beating the Atlanta Hawks 127-113 on Monday night.

Dallas led 68-55 at halftime and kept adding to the lead in the second half. Dirk Nowitzki, who had 22 points, hit two free throws as the Mavericks reached 100 with their first points of the final period.

Dallas made 57.3% of its shots (51 of 89). The Hawks also had a strong night on offense, shooting 56% from the field with eight scorers in double figures, but could come no closer than 11 points in the second half.

Collison made 10 of 14 shots from the field, going 2 of 3 from 3-point range.
