DENVER (AP) Chicago lost All-Star Jimmy Butler, and then the game. An impressive rally by Danilo Gallinari and the Denver Nuggets pushed aside the Bulls.

Gallinari scored 33 points Friday night, and Denver stormed to a 115-110 victory after Butler left in the second quarter with a sprained left knee.

Emmanuel Mudiay scored 22 points and Will Barton had 18 for the Nuggets, who outscored the Bulls 42-21 in the fourth quarter. It was their ninth straight victory over Chicago in Denver, but the concern from the Bulls was for Butler, who was seen leaving the arena after the game on crutches.
