DENVER (AP) -- Danilo Gallinari scored a season-high 21 points, including a pair of free throws in the final seconds, and the Denver Nuggets beat the Milwaukee Bucks 91-86 on Monday night. Al Harrington added 17 points and Ty Lawson 16 for the Nuggets, who were playing their third game in as many nights. Stephen Jackson led Milwaukee with 17 points. Carlos Delfino added 14 for the Bucks, who were denied in a bid for a third consecutive win, which would have matched their season long from last season. The Nuggets were without center-forward Nene, who sat out the game with a bruised left heel. Before the game, coach George Karl described Nene's status as day to day. Mike Dunleavy did not make the trip with the team, staying home because of an illness. Delfino's 3-pointer gave the Bucks a 74-68 lead heading into the fourth quarter and Andrew Bogut 10-foot hook shot put Milwaukee in front 81-76 with 8:31 left to play. Gallinari, who also had 10 rebounds, then got the Nuggets going. He drove in for a layup and tipped in a shot as part of a 10-0 run that Harrington finished with successive dunks as Denver went in front 86-81 with 4:01 remaining. Stephen Jackson made a 20-foot jumper pulling Milwaukee to within 87-86 with 1:55 remaining. Both sides missed jump shots before Lawson shook loose on a fast break and put in a layup with 10.9 seconds left for a three-point Nuggets' lead. Brandon Jennings missed a 3-pointer from the top of the key with about seven seconds to go and the rebound went to Gallinari, who was immediately fouled. He made both free throws with 5.3 seconds remaining to secure the win. Milwaukee took a 44-37 lead after a basket by Luc Mbah a Moute. Denver came back to score 11 of the next 15 points, including tip-in by Gallinari as time expired to even the score at 48-all at halftime. NOTES: The Bucks failed to score at least 50 points in the first half for the first time in four games this season. ... The Nuggets finished their first back-to-back-to-back set of the NBA's condensed season with a 2-1 mark. ... Gallinari's previous season high was 20 points, scored the night before in a win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
