Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Andre Iguodala made the game-winning layup with 2.8 seconds remaining and Corey Brewer blocked Anthony Morrow's potential game-winning trey to lift the Denver Nuggets to a 95-94 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday.

Brewer also scored 23 points while Andre Miller had 22 points and seven assists for the Nuggets, who are on a three-game winning streak. Kenneth Faried had 12 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks in the victory.

With the win, the Nuggets are now three games behind the Thunder for second place in the Western Conference standings and improved their home record to an NBA-best 34-3.

Brandan Wright had a team-high 16 points for the Mavericks, who have lost three of their last four games. Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Kaman scored 13 points apiece in the setback.

The Mavericks are now three games behind the Lakers for the eighth spot in the Western Conference with seven games left on the schedule.
