               === Gallinari, Lawson lead Nuggets past Bucks ===
 
 Denver,  CO  (Sports Network) - Danilo  Gallinari and Ty Lawson each scored 22
 points and led the Denver Nuggets to a 112-104 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on
 Tuesday.
 
 Gallinari  was  7-of-14, including  3-of-6 from  three-point range, and Lawson
 added  seven assists  and  two steals  for  the Nuggets,  who  have won  seven
 straight games. Corey Brewer scored 20 points off the bench.
 
 "There's no way I thought this was going to be an easy win this stretch," said
 Nuggets head coach George Karl. "Our defense made it somewhat of an easy
 fourth quarter win."
 
 Samuel  Dalembert scored  a career-high 35 points on 17-of-21 shooting and had
 12  rebounds  for the  Bucks, who  have lost  three of  their last four games.
 Four  of Milwaukee's  starters -- Larry Sanders, Monta Ellis, Brandon Jennings
 and Luc Mbah a Moute -- recorded 12 points.
 
 "It's one of those nights you know, you try to make the best of what you get
 out there," said Dalembert.
 
 Milwaukee led nearly the entire game before giving up the lead with minutes to
 spare in the fourth quarter.
 
 Going  into  the fourth, Milwaukee was  leading 86-79. In the opening seconds,
 Dalembert's dunk extended the Bucks' lead, 88-79.
 
 However, the Nuggets answered back with a 23-12 run to take the lead with 3:05
 remaining. Brewer's dunk tied the game at 100-100 and Lawson's two free throws
 gave Denver a 102-100 edge.
 
 After  a free  throw by Jennings, Lawson's layup followed by an Andre Iguodala
 dunk gave Denver a 108-103 advantage.
 
 Jennings  scored the  final  point  with 1:19  remaining  to  cut the  deficit
 108-104,  but the  Bucks  missed their  final three  shots  while the  Nuggets
 extended their lead to give them the win.
 
 After  the first quarter, the Bucks led by two, 29-27. However, in the second,
 they  scored 37  points on 68 percent shooting, and prevented the Nuggets from
 scoring behind the arc.
 
 At  one point late  in the quarter, Milwaukee led by as many as 17, 64-47, and
 entered halftime with a 66-51 margin.
 
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Dalembert  scored 21 points  in the first half ... Denver has won six straight
 games against Milwaukee and is 6-0 against Central Division teams.
