DALLAS (AP) -Manu Ginobili scored eight points in a 19-0 third-quarter rally that sent the San Antonio Spurs past Dallas 88-81 Sunday, but the Mavericks came away worried mostly about the status of reigning league MVP Dirk Nowitzki.
Nowitzki hurt his lower left leg during a nasty spill late in San Antonio's game-breaking stretch. Both the ankle and knee seemed to buckle when he landed after running to block a shot. He slapped the court and put a hand to his head in agony, then sat motionless for a few minutes. He put no weight on the leg leaving the court, then was seen limping into the X-ray room.
The team said he would be evaluated Monday.
San Antonio actually went ahead on that play, with Tim Duncan grabbing the loose ball and scoring, wiping out what had been a 12-point Dallas lead only minutes before. Duncan added a free throw, too, and the Spurs were headed to their third straight win since a 1-6 slump.
Nuggets 109, Raptors 100
TORONTO (AP) - Allen Iverson had 36 points, Carmelo Anthony added 33 and Denver beat Toronto.
J.R. Smith scored 14 points and Marcus Camby had 15 rebounds for Denver, which has won five of seven.
Chris Bosh was one assist shy of a triple-double, finishing with 17 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists as Toronto lost for the seventh time in eight games.
