Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Kidd earned his 104th triple-double tonight against the Atlanta Hawks.

Kidd had 19 points, 11 rebounds and 16 assists late in the fourth quarter. It was Kidd's first triple-double of the season.

Only Oscar Robertson (181) and Earvin "Magic" Johnson (138) have more triple-doubles than Kidd.

Kidd's play helped lead Dallas on a 15-1 run late in the fourth quarter to regain the lead from the Hawks after Atlanta took a 10 point lead.

Not long after Kidd attained his triple-double, he ran into Hawks coach Mike Woodson as Woodson was standing on the court while Kidd was driving the ball up the sideline. The two shouted at each other and had to be separated by players and officials.

Woodson was assessed a technical foul for interfering with the playing area.
