Mavericks at Nuggets: How to watch on TV, preview and more

DALLAS AT DENVER, 7 p.m. Monday, ALT, 950 AM

Spotlight on Harrison Barnes: On a team without a lot of firepower, Harrison Barnes has been a reliable source of scoring. The forward, who signed a four-year, $94 million contract with the Mavericks as a free agent in the summer, leads the team in scoring at 20.4 points per game. His points and rebounds (5.6) averages are both career highs as he looks to become the Mavericks lead player of now and the future.

Nuggets: The Nuggets are looking to close this homestand with three consecutive wins, which would be the first time they’ve done that this season. They’ve won consecutive games for just the second time this season. “We have a lot of work to do,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “It’s two games, a small sample size, but I do like what I’ve seen. Hopefully that can continue and that can be who we are.” The Nuggets’ offense has come alive in the last two outings, averaging 129.5 points on a sizzling 53.5 percent shooting from the field and 43.1 percent from the 3-point line. Dallas, however, bottled the Nuggets up a few days ago, holding them under 100 in a 112-92 win in Dallas. “We have Dallas coming in here, we owe them,” Malone said. “We had one of our worst games of the year in Dallas. So, it would be great to end this three-game homestand with a win.”

Mavericks: The Mavericks come to Denver on the second of a back-to-back. They faced the Sacramento Kings on Sunday in Dallas. The Mavericks have not fared well in the second game in the back-to-back, going 0-4 in those situations so far this season. They continue to play without star forward Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles), guard J.J. Barea (calf) and center Andrew Bogut (knee).
