Diop capped a career night by swatting Anthony's layup with 2.9 seconds to go. Diop finished with career highs of 16 rebounds and six blocked shots, while Dirk Nowitzki did the work on the other end, scoring 19 of his 35 points in the final 20 minutes.
"I was guarded by one guy at first," Anthony said of his last try. "Then once I got in the air, it was two (more), Dirk and DeSagana. Wasn't nothing I could do at that point. I missed the shot."
