The Milwaukee Bucks played flawless basketball in the first half in Denver Tuesday night, shooting over 60% and building a 66-51 intermission lead, but they were very flawed down the stretch as the Denver Nuggets rallied for a 112-104 victory at the Pepsi Center. Several ugly turnovers in the closing minutes doomed the Bucks who wasted a career high 35 points from center Samuel Dalembert. He made a dominating 17 of 21 shots and pulled down 12 rebounds. Ty Lawson and Danil Gallinari each scored 22 for the Nuggets who captured their seventh straight victory. The Bucks fall to 25-22 and now trail Indiana by four games in the Central Division. Milwaukee travels to Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz Wednesday night.
