Iverson leads Nuggets beat Mavs

Denver Nuggets 122 - Dallas Mavericks 109: A day after scoring 51 points in a loss to Los Angeles Lakers, Allen Iverson may have been even better, finishing with 35 points and 12 assists in the Nuggets' victory.

"Allen had it all going from everywhere," expressed Dallas. As for Dirk Nowitzki, he tied his season high with 32 points and had 12 rebounds. "He was driving and making shots in-between." Iverson made 12 of 19 field goals and was 11 of 13 from the free-throw line in his first 30-10 game of the season. Linas Kleiza benefited from Iverson's passing, scoring a season-best 23 points.

It's important to say that Carmelo Anthony also had 23 points as Denver made 50.5% of its shots despite Anthony's nine-for-30 shooting. Iverson's playing time was as impressive as his statistics, with him playing 43 minutes one night after going the full 48 against the Lakers. The Mavericks gave up their most points this season in a quarter (39, the first), a half (64) and a game. The problems were at both ends of the court as the Mavericks also committed a season-high 19 turnovers.

Portland Trail Blazers 112 - Miami Heat 106: The Trail Blazers ended a five-game losing streak against the Heat by sending Miami to its fourth straight loss and a 4-14 record. Brandon Roy had 25 points and Travis Outlaw had 20 for the Blazers, which saw its 16-point first-half lead cut to one in the fourth quarter.

Still, is important to mention that Dwyane Wade had 21 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for the Heat, but he made only nine of 26 shots. Shaquille O'Neal had only eight points and 10 rebounds in 22 foul-plagued minutes.

Atlanta Hawks 90 - Minnesota Timberwolves 89: Joe Johnson's 18-footer at the buzzer lifted the Hawks past the league-worst Timberwolves, who lost their fifth in a row to drop to 2-15. And Minnesota had a one-point lead after Marko Jaric's layup with 2.2 seconds left. After a timeout, Johnson (21 points) took the pass at the top of the key and dribbled to his right for a jumper. Josh Smith netted 28 points and seven blocked shots for the Hawks.
