PHOENIX (AP) -- Jason Kidd sank a pair of 3-pointers in the final 1:11 and the Dallas Mavericks pulled out a 91-83 win over Phoenix on Sunday night that may have dropped the curtains on the Suns' hopes for a playoff berth.

Phoenix led most of the ugly game and it was tied at 83 after Jared Dudley's 14-footer in the lane with 1:37 to play.

But Kidd sank one from long range with 1:11 to go to make it 86-83. Channing Frye, scoreless and 0 for 4 shooting, inexplicably forced a 3-point airball at the other end and Kidd responded with another 3 that put Dallas ahead 89-83 with 44 seconds to go.

Marcin Gortat and Dudley were inserted into the starting lineup and scored 20 points apiece for Phoenix.
