MILWAUKEE, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Corey Brewer scored 22 points Tuesday to help the Denver Nuggets beat Milwaukee 105-95.

Al Harrington scored 16 points and Nene and Danilo Gallinari both tallied 14 in the opener of a five-game road trip for the Nuggets.

The Bucks got 30 points from Brandon Jennings but it wasn't enough to prevent their first loss of the season at home. Tobias Harris scored 14 and Jon Leuer finished with 11.

Denver shot 42.7 percent from the field but outscored the Bucks 37-23 in the second quarter to put the game out of reach.

Milwaukee cut the lead to nine in the closing minutes but Gallinari knocked down two free throws and Shaun Livingston hit a 15-foot jump shot that snuffed out the rally.
