Dallas:

Shawn Marion had 16 points and 10 rebounds, leading six Dallas players scoring in double figures as the Mavericks stretched their winning streak to five with a 102-84 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday.

Dallas jumped out to a 9-1 lead in the first 3 minutes and was never really challenged.

The five straight wins match a season high for Dallas. They have come since a rare three-day break between games that followed three consecutive losses.

Vince Carter had 15 points for the Mavericks. Lamar Odom scored 14, Jason Kidd 13 and Dirk Nowitzki 12. None of the starters played more than 27 minutes.

Rudy Fernandez led the Nuggets with 14 points. Al Harrington, another reserve, had 13.
