It hasn’t been the most aes­thetic six-game road trip for the Nuggets, who bring it to a close Mon­day at Dal­las. But a win against the Mavericks would give the Nuggets a 3-3 record. The Mavericks check in with the worst record in the NBA at 5-18. Wilson Chan­dler missed Saturday’s game with sore­ness in his right hip and is ques­tion­able for Mon­day’s game. Only Gary Har­ris (foot) is def­i­nitely not avail­able. Mavericks: Dal­las has lost three of its last four games. Scor­ing, or a lack of it, has been the cen­tral is­sue for Dal­las all sea­son. The Mavericks are av­er­ag­ing just 92.7 points per game while al­low­ing 100.9. In­juries have also been a prob­lem. Three ma­jor play­ers are out for this game: for­ward Dirk Now­itzki (Achilles), cen­ter Andrew Bogut (knee) and guard Jose Juan Barea (calf ).
