Denver (47-21) rallied from a 13-point, fourth-quarter deficit and led 105-102 before Mr. Doncic’s 3-pointer tied the game with 25 seconds left. After Jamal Murray’s shot on Denver’s final possession came up short, Dallas (39-29) called timeout to set up Mr. Irving’s game winner.

Mr. Doncic returned after missing one game with left hamstring soreness and scored with 6:50 left in the contest to give the Mavericks a 98-85 lead.

Mr. Murray’s floater capped a 15-3 run and cut the deficit to 101-100 with 1:51 remaining. After Mr. Doncic made one of two free throws, Mr. Jokic scored on Denver’s next possession and Mr. Murray hit a 3-pointer with 28 seconds left to put the Nuggets ahead 105-102. Dallas trailed 34-30 at the end of the first quarter despite outscoring the Nuggets 20-10 on points in the paint. Mr. Porter had 12 points in the period.
