PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Allen Iverson scored 32 points and Steve Blake added a career-high 25 against his former team, leading the Denver Nuggets to a 109-93 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night.

Iverson added nine assists for the Nuggets, who trailed at halftime but outscored the Blazers 41-17 in the fourth quarter.

The victory snapped a two-game losing streak for Denver, coming off a 90-86 loss Friday to the Houston Rockets.

Blake was acquired by Denver on Thursday in a trade that sent Earl Boykins to Milwaukee. He started in the backcourt for Portland last season with Juan Dixon.

The Blazers, coming off a victory over the Sacramento Kings 95-87 on Friday, have lost eight of their last 10.

Rookie Sergio Rodriguez scored a career-high 23 points and had 10 assists for Portland.
