Gallinari, Faried lead Nuggets to 121-113 win over Magic

Danilo Gallinari is at his best when being aggressive and imposing his will on opposing teams. Center Bismack Biyombo had 12 points and six rebounds, Aaron Gordon added 11 points D.J. Augustin finished with 10. The Nuggets' Kenneth Faried cleaned up the glass, pulling down 3 offensive rebounds and 7 defensive rebounds.

Danilo Gallinari scored 21 points, Kenneth Faried had 19 points and 10 rebounds off the bench, and the Denver Nuggets defeated the Orlando Magic 121-113 on Saturday night. "The more I'm aggressive, the more I can make things happen for everybody else".

After trailing by four in the fourth quarter, the Nuggets bounced back with big baskets from Nikola Jokic and Faried.

Evan Fournier led the Magic with 24 points.

Head coach Michael Malone said on Thursday after Faried did not play that his decision to sit Faried was part of a plan to utilize the power forward against Orlando. "When he settles for jump shots and doesn't get to the foul line, he is not as good of a player".

Hometown Denver Nuggets fans got a weekend game in before dinner, as the Nugs had an early east coast start today against the Orlando Magic.

The Nuggets outscored short-handed Orlando 64-34 in the paint. Denver scored more than 30 points in three of the four quarters. It didn't help the Magic that leading shot blocker Biyombo was nursing a left shoulder injury and wore a brace to protect it. Just looking at Jokic's statline of 14 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks, and a steal, will show you how valuable he is to this team. Sooner or later something is going to give. "We were able to finish tonight". "Nurkic is a load in there".

Faried was 9 of 10 from the field, and Denver shot 57 per cent. Denver's bench outscored Orlando's reserves 58-34. The Magic recalled rookie centre Stephen Zimmerman from the Erie BayHawks of the NBA Development League. Juan Hernangomez sank four triples for 14 markers. After missing his first 3-pointer of the night, he knocked down four straight in the first half.

Denver wraps up a six-game road trip against the 5-18 Mavericks on Monday.

The Nuggets won for just the second time in the last six games.

The Nuggets leave Orlando with a victory and improve to 9-15 on the season while the Magic drop to 10-15. He picked up a lot of clutch minutes in this game and hit a late trey to give the Magic a prayer late.
