Kenyon Martin poured in 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Denver Nuggets earned their fifth straight win, topping Golden State 119-112 last night.

The outcome leaves the Nuggets a half-game ahead of Golden State for the final Western Conference playoff berth. Denver also climbed within a half-game of Dallas for seventh in the West.

Martin's biggest bucket was a buzzer beater from the left corner that made it 115-110 with 1:11 remaining, and Baron Davis, who led the Warriors with 28 points, misfired twice on 3-pointers in the final minute.

The Nuggets won despite a poor shooting night by Allen Iverson, who scored 14 points on 4-for-20 shooting
