DALLAS -

O.J. Mayo broke out of a shooting slump with 27 points and Dallas celebrated Derek Fisher's Mavericks debut with a 92-77 victory against the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.
 
   Mayo was coming off consecutive games with season lows and started 0 for 4 before taking over in the third quarter. He scored 16 points in a 17-4 run that eventually stretched into a 25-6 surge as Dallas snapped a three-game losing streak.
 
   Fisher got the start a day after the 16-year veteran's first practice with the Mavs. His presence seemed to spark Darren Collison, the struggling young point guard he was brought in to help. Collison had eight assists and no turnovers.
 
   Brandon Knight led Detroit with 20 points, including 18 in the first half.
