Mavs win in Denver, 102-101

Dirk Nowitzki scored a season-high 35 points and Caron Butler hit a pivotal 3-pointer late in the game, helping the
Dallas Mavericks hold off a Denver Nuggets squad missing center Nene 102-101 on Wednesday night.
Butler hit a 3-pointer from the corner with 2 minutes remaining
to give the Mavericks a 102-99 lead.
Carmelo Anthony answered with a dunk to trim it to one and after
a Mavericks shot-clock violation, the Nuggets had one last chance.
But Anthony's 20-footer with Shawn Marion in his face rimmed out
and the Nuggets couldn't track down the rebound in time.
Jason Terry scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half and
Butler finished with 16 points as the Mavericks won in a building
that has traditionally given them trouble.
