DENVER (AP) -- Randy Foye made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:11 left, and the Denver Nuggets hung on to beat the Dallas Mavericks 102-100 on Saturday night.
Ty Lawson scored 20 points to lead the Nuggets, who won their fifth straight at home while ending Dallas' four-game winning streak. Kenneth Faried had 18 points and 14 rebounds, and Foye finished 17 points.
Dirk Nowitzki had 27 points but missed a shot at the end that would have sent the game into overtime.
Monta Ellis added 25 points and Vince Carter had 16 for the Mavericks, who were without coach Rick Carlisle for most of the game after he drew two technical fouls in succession and was ejected by referee Tony Brothers with 5:14 remaining in the second quarter.
