Mavericks Vs. Nuggets Score Update: Dallas Leads 33-29 After 1st Quarter

The Denver Nuggets are trying to prevent the Dallas Mavericks from winning their fourth straight game tonight, but if Dallas keeps shooting like it did in the first quarter, George Karl's team is going to be in for a long night. Dallas will take a 33-29 lead into the second quarter at the Pepsi Center after shooting 15-for-24 (62.5 percent) from the floor in the opening frame.

Star forward Dirk Nowitzki leads Dallas with 10 points and three assists on 5-of-5 shooting. Starting center Ian Mahinmi has six points and three rebounds on 3-of-4 shooting.

Wilson Chandler is making his return to the NBA tonight for the Nuggets after a stint in China, and he's off to a nice start already. Chandler has a team-high seven points through the first quarter. Center Timofey Mozgov has six points for Denver.
