Melo miss seals West's loss

ARLINGTON, Texas -- As if the Mavericks-Nuggets feud need any more fuel.

Dirk Nowitzki didn't get a chance to tie or win the All-Star Game in the final seconds. Carmelo Anthony was the only player to touch the ball on the West's final possession ... and his contested jumper barely drew iron.

East 141, West 139.

Actually, Dirk probably couldn't care less about getting the rock with an exhibition game on the line. But I betcha Mark Cuban muttered some nasty words about Melo getting the moment.
