NEW YORK, February 3- Dirk Nowitzki scored 29 points and the German star forward grabbed 11 rebounds to spark the Dallas Mavericks past the New York Knicks 113-97 on Wednesday, stretching their win streak to six games.

Jose Barea contributed 22 points while Tyson Chandler added 15 points and 11 rebounds for Dallas, which began the second half with a 26-6 run on the way to their 16th victory in their past 18 meetings with New York.

The Knicks, who missed 11-of-14 shots to start the third quarter, were led by Italian playmaker Danilo Gallinari’s 27 points and 21 from Amare Stoudemire. Reserve Toney Douglas added 22 points.
