MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Danilo Gallinari was one of five Denver players in double figures Wednesday and the Nuggets rallied in the fourth period to down Minnesota 101-94.

The outcome spoiled the return to action for Minnesota's Kevin Love, who made his season debut after breaking his right hand prior to the start of the campaign.
