DENVER (AP) - Raymond Felton hit a layup with 1.5 seconds remaining in double overtime, then blocked a last-second shot to help the Dallas Mavericks beat the Denver Nuggets 144-143 on Friday night.

Felton drove past Randy Foye and banked in a shot high off the glass. He then got a piece of Kenneth Faried's jumper at the buzzer, causing the ball to wind up short.

Danilo Gallinari scored a career-high 47 points, including eight in the first overtime and nine in the second.

Denver had a chance to win in regulation, but Faried's jumper rolled off the rim. Dallas had a shot to claim victory at the end of the first overtime, only to have Monta Ellis' long shot clang off the iron.

Dirk Nowitzki had 25 points and Richard Jefferson added a season-high 24.
