    Nuggets beat Mavs in Dallas

    VLATKO Cancar hit a buzzer-beater from beyond midcourt when the final two seconds of the first half were replayed after the break, and the outmanned Denver Nuggets went on to beat the Mavericks, 98-97, on Sunday in Dallas (Monday, Manila time).

    The Nuggets went to the locker room thinking they were down seven on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Dallas star Luka Doncic that appeared to finish a 14-2 half-ending run for the Mavericks.

    This two nights after Denver was blown out in Dallas, and again missing Jokic, Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon with one of the replacements, Jeff Green, out for the night with a right knee injury.

    Instead, Doncic's Slovenian countryman brought the Nuggets within a point, and the six-point swing paid off when Michael Porter Jr. hit the deciding 3-pointer with 55 seconds remaining in the game.

    A video review showed Doncic stepped out bounds before his second-quarter step-back 3, and since the teams were already off the court, the game had to be picked up from that point after the break.

    Bones Hyland scored a career-high 29 points, and Porter Jr. had 12 with his only made 3-pointer in five attempts providing the final scoring.

    Josh Green had a career-high 23 points for Dallas, but his only miss on an 8-of-9 night, including 6 of 7 from 3, was from long range with the Mavericks leading by two in the final 70 seconds.

    Doncic scored 22 with a miss on a long 3-pointer at the buzzer, securing an improbable split of the two games in Dallas for the Nuggets.


    Cavaliers blast Heat


    DARIUS Garland scored 25 points, Cedi Osman added 20 and extra energy off the bench and the Cavaliers played one of their best games in weeks, rolling to a 113-87 win over the banged-up Miami Heat in Cleveland.

    After ending a five-game losing streak with a double-overtime win over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday, the Cavs didn't have to work nearly as hard while handing Miami its sixth straight road loss.

    Cleveland used a 21-2 tear in the second quarter to open a 19-point lead, and the Cavs pushed their advantage to 31 in the third. Guilty of blowing leads in the fourth quarter so many times this season, they finished the job with ease.

    Evan Mobley had 15 points and 10 rebounds for Cleveland, which outscored Miami 67-37 over the second and third quarters.

    The short-handed Heat fell to 0-3 on a trip that ends in Minnesota on Monday night.
