Nuggets Vs. Mavericks Score: Kenyon Martin Drives Denver To Early Lead

The Denver Nuggets hold a 21-13 lead over the Dallas Mavericks at the end of the first quarter, with Kenyon Martin's six points, two boards, and two steals leading the way. The game was tight until Wilson Chandler hit a three-pointer and Martin followed with back-to-back scores. 

Sort of surprised I'm allowed to type all this right now, considering Mavs owner Mark Cuban's stance on people writing about his team without his approval. The Mavs will need to get it going to avoid their fourth-straight loss and further Cuban-related distractions.

DeShawn Stevenson had a difficult first quarter, finding himself in foul trouble with two personals and missing all three of his field goal attempts. The Mavs as a whole hit only eight of their 25 shots.
