Mavs play some defense!!!

DENVER -- Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway, the NFL comeback king, provided some entertainment during the timeout by firing a couple of passes to the Nuggets' mascot.

Rocky, who is some sort of yellow furry creature, made a pretty nice catch on the second one after running about a 20-yard crossing route. Of course, the dude danced like he just caught a Super Bowl-clinching touchdown pass.

Then along came Jason Terry with a textbook form tackle.

Hey, the Mavs will take their stops any way they can get 'em.

In other news, the Nuggets are clinging to a 30-point lead.
