Faried's putback lifts Denver past Milwaukee 103-102


DENVER (AP) -- Kenneth Faried rebounded Danilo Gallinari's errant shot in the lane for a putback with 5 seconds remaining to give the Denver Nuggets a 103-102 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

Khris Middleton's shot from the corner rimmed out at the buzzer as the Bucks lost for the sixth straight time in Denver.

Gallinari had 25 points to lead the Nuggets and Faried finished with 19. Rookie guard Emmanuel Mudiay added 16 points and 11 assists for his second double-double.

Jerryd Bayless had 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter for Milwaukee while Greg Monroe added 18 and Greivis Vasquez had 15.

Before the game the Nuggets announced forward Wilson Chandler, a key player for Denver over the last five seasons, would undergo season-ending surgery to repair a labral tear in his right hip. He suffered the injury in the preseason.
