=== Dallas Mavericks Team Report – November 22 ===

(Sports Network) – The Dallas Mavericks found themselves on the wrong end of
a 110-82 decision against the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center.

Devin Harris paced Dallas with 15 points and five assists. Jerry Stackhouse
had 14 points for the Mavericks, who have dropped two of their last three
games after beginning the season 7-1.

Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki suffered an ankle injury late in the second quarter and
did not return. He finished with 11 points in 18 minutes of action.

The Nuggets were clinging to a four-point lead with just over five minutes
remaining in the third quarter. Denver then scored 19 of the final 26 points
of the period to take a commanding 86-70 lead after 36 minutes. Earl Boykins,
Bryon Russell and Buckner all hit three-pointers during the decisive run.

The Nuggets continued to pour it on in the fourth quarter, building the margin
to as many as 30 points at 110-80 on Rodney White’s jumper in the closing
seconds.

Dallas will return to action on Wednesday when they face the San Antonio
Spurs.
