Chris Bosh scored 40 points and Ray Allen sank the go-ahead basket while being fouled with 6.7 seconds remaining to spark the Miami Heat over the Denver Nuggets 119-116 in an NBA game on Saturday.

Allen, who left Boston and was obtained by the reigning NBA champions in the off-season, hit six 3-pointers and finished with 23 points while LeBron James added 20 as Miami bounced back from a 20-point loss on Friday at New York.

Andre Iguodala's jumper gave Denver a 116-114 advantage but the Heat answered when James flipped a pass to Allen in the left corner and the veteran sank a 3-pointer while the Nuggets' Corey Brewer ran into him after the shot.

Allen added a free throw to create the final margin and Italy's Danilo Gallinari missed a final 3-point attempt to clinch the Miami triumph.

Bosh enjoyed the biggest scoring night since he joined the Heat two years ago when James also arrived. James added a game-high 11 assists and nine rebounds for Miami.

Iguodala and Kenneth Faried each scored 22 points to lead the Nuggets, who fell to 0-3 for the first time since 2006.
