DALLAS -- It's been a long time since Dallas torched a team with the kind of firepower it put on display in a demolition of defenseless Denver at American Airlines Center.
Dallas was off and running early and buried the Nuggets in an avalanche of fast breaks and buckets from just about everywhere to build a double-digit lead that expanded to 22 points thanks to a 15-2 run to close out an electric first half.
The Mavs scored a season-best 65 points in the opening 30 minutes as a result of 66.7 percent shooting in the second quarter and 65.1 percent shooting in the first half that included going 24-of-32 inside the arc for a cool 75 percent. Forty of Dallas' first-half points came inside the paint and 20 came off 11 Denver turnovers.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- DeMarcus Cousins scored 16 of Sacramento's 39 third-quarter points, and the Kings rode their best quarter of the season to a victory over Los Angeles.
The Kings, who endured a season-worst, eight-point fourth quarter in a Saturday night loss at Utah, won for just the second time in seven games. Cousins finished with 31 points, and Darren Collison added 10 of his 20 in the third to help the Kings turn a 58-49 halftime deficit into a 88-71 lead entering the final quarter.
Cousins also finished with 16 rebounds, and Sacramento handed the struggling Lakers their seventh consecutive defeat despite losing starting guard Ben McLemore to a bruised left thigh in the first quarter. D'Angelo Russell scored 17 points in 20 minutes to lead Los Angeles.
