Australia 263 for 3 (Maxwell 145*, Head 45) beat Sri Lanka 178 for 9 (Chandimal 58, Starc 3-26, Boland 3-26) by 85 runs runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsIn 90 minutes of outlandish clean-striking, Glenn Maxwell marked a monumental return to form, sent Sri Lanka into freefall, and stole their T20I world record from under their noses. Womens Jets Jerseys .The scorecard says he hit nine sixes in his 65-ball 145 not out, but it felt like he had hit so many more. It says there were 14 fours in this Maxwell mauling, but so quickly did they come, one after the other, that who is to tell when one boundary ended and another began? It was a blur of bludgeoned sweeps, of wallops down the ground and, occasionally, of enterprising strokes behind the wicket. Australia made 263 for 3. This is the joint-highest T20 score, in addition to being the biggest score in T20 internationals, beating the 260 Sri Lanka had hit against Kenya.Maxwell had opened the innings in place of the injured Aaron Finch, and he quickly set about knocking Sri Lankas bowlers out of shape. So battered were they by the end of the Powerplay, in which Australia had cracked 73 for 1, that they soon became helplessly complicit in Maxwells plunder. Thigh-high full tosses were sent down with masochistic abandon. Errors bred further errors in the outfield. In the 18th over, a catch was dropped, though that was off Travis Head, who was the second-highest scorer with 45 off 18 balls. Each of Sri Lankas four main bowlers conceded at least 12.75 per over. The hosts batting went much better, though they were never really in the hunt. The top three fell cheaply, but Dinesh Chandimal hit 58 off 43 and Chamara Kapugedera 43 off 25. Mitchell Starc and Scott Boland took three wickets apiece, as Sri Lanka finished on 178 for 9 - 86 runs short of the 264-run target.The first over had cost Sri Lanka only three runs, and though Maxwell hit the innings first boundary - smoking an overpitched Suranga Lakmal delivery through cover - it was David Warner who doused the scene with petrol, and began the raging fire. Warner eyed up seamer Kasun Rajitha, playing his third international, and banged four consecutive fours in the third over, three of those coming on the off side. It was not long before Maxwell matched that aggression. The first six of the match was a reverse-sweep off Sachithra Senanayake. A four followed next ball, off the same shot.Neither Warners dismissal by Senanayake nor the end of the Powerplay made much difference to Maxwells approach. Decent balls - like Rajithas slower one on the stumps in the ninth over - were whacked disdainfully over long-on. Then when the bad balls came, like the full toss from Rajitha immediately after, Maxwell biffed them over the boundary as well.The first of those consecutive sixes off Rajitha brought Maxwell his half-century, off 27 balls. He took a further 22 to reach his hundred. Sri Lanka rifled through bowlers in this period, trying offspin, left-arm spin, seam, and whatever it is that Thisara Perera bowls. None of this could make so much as a dent in Maxwells confidence, which by now was magnetic. Thisara, in fact, came closest to getting him out, in the 13th over, though that wasnt particularly close: Kapugedera, who caught Maxwell on the deep midwicket boundary, had trod on the rope and had to abandon the catch anyway as his momentum was taking him over the rope.Having reached his first T20 century, and second in international cricket (both have come against Sri Lanka), Maxwell set his sights on the records. His first six in triple figures was perhaps the best of the lot, as he sliced Lakmal beautifully over the deep-cover boundary, immediately after having hit a four to fine leg. Finch, running the drinks in this match, holds the individual T20 record of 156, and Maxwell was in pursuit. When he biffed three consecutive sixes over long-on, off Senanayake, he moved to 134, with 19 balls still remaining in the innings. Head, though, indulged in some brutality of his own, hitting three sixes and four fours in his innings. One of those sixes came over long-on, off Thisara Perera. It was that shot which gave Australia the team total record.Tillakaratne Dilshan has led outrageous chases before, but when he was bowled trying to clang a Mitchell Starc ball through the leg side in the first over, Sri Lankas already slim chances became even slimmer. Kusal Perera was out slashing Boland to third man, soon after. By the end of the Powerplay, Sri Lanka had mustered 56 for 3, but with the required rate almost 15, the chase just became about limiting the severity of the loss.Kusal Mendis made an attractive 22 replete with a pulled six off James Faulkner, and an imperious, lofted off-drive off Moises Henriques, but he was out in the eighth over. Chandimal pulled his team through those early overs, scoring heavily with his horizontal bat shots, the flat-batted four down the ground off Boland in the fourth over the most memorable among them.Chandimal and Kapugedera put on Sri Lankas best partnership, taking a particular liking to the spinners as they made 44 from 29 balls. But they both holed out soon enough. Sri Lanka hit 100 runs in boundaries. Maxwell, who had been dropped from the squad entirely for the ODIs, struck 110 in boundaries by himself.

LOS ANGELES -- After four seasons in the Golden State Warriors supporting cast, Harrison Barnes is seizing his opportunity to be the main man in Dallas.Barnes scored 31 points, Seth Curry added 23 and the Mavericks won their second straight game after an 0-5 start, 109-97 over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.Two days after Barnes scored a career-best 34 in the Mavs victory over Milwaukee, he hit 11 of 18 shots at Staples Center while leading Dallas past the Lakers for the 11th consecutive time since April 2, 2013. Barnes scored seven consecutive points after Los Angeles took a lead with 7 1/2 minutes to play, and his teammates finished it off.Im just being aggressive, Barnes said. That was the biggest thing in my first few games (with the Mavs), figuring out when to be aggressive and when not to. You just kind of have to leave the switch on, and if you fail, fail aggressively.Its working: Barnes has scored 30 points three times in Dallas last six games after hitting that mark once in his first four seasons with Golden State.After getting their first win of the season Sunday against Milwaukee, the Mavs won again without injured Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams. Nowitzki missed his second straight game with a sore Achilles tendon, while Williams missed his second straight game with a strained calf muscle.Dallas used only eight players in LA, but it was enough.This is two team efforts, just scrappy and grinding, Barnes said. Everyone is getting in the mix offensively and defensively. Its not always pretty basketball, but were getting it done, and thats the most rewarding thing about it.JJ Barea had 18 points, seven rebounds and eight assists for the Mavericks, who beat the Lakers on the road for the sixth straight time.Our guys stuck to a game plan of tempo and patience and discipline, and they won the game, Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said.TIP-INSMavericks: Carlisle shared a quick pregame moment with Lakers F Metta World Peace, who played for Carlisle in Indianna a decade ago.

Julius Randle had 15 points and 10 rebounds, but also committed six turnovers.LAKERS LOSSJordan Clarkson scored 22 points and Nick Young had 20 as the Lakers three-game winning streak ended with 17 turnovers and some late-game struggles. Lou Williams scored 15 points for Los Angeles, which rallied from an 11-point deficit in the second half before failing to execute in the final minutes.I thought we did a little better job in the second half fighting, Walton said. I thought we were a little soft in the first half. We had our chances.Young scored 13 points in the first 3:15, staking the Lakers to an early lead. Dallas scored the final 11 points of the half to move ahead 58-54.HEADING BACKBarnes had his latest monster game one night before he returned to Oakland to take on the Golden State Warriors for the first time since leaving as a free agent during the summer. Barnes was a key player on the Warriors 2015 championship team and last seasons runner-up, but left after the Warriors renounced his rights when they landed Kevin Durant.When asked if the homecoming was anything special, Barnes said: Nah. ... Its another game. Were 2-5, so its another game. Trying to 3-5 and go back home.SHORT-LIVEDThe Lakers (4-4) had moved above .500 for just the second time since Dec. 6, 2013, with a victory over Phoenix on Sunday.
