Danilo Gallinari shot the lights out in Denver’s loss to the Rockets on Wednesday, finishing with a team high 23 points on 8-for-16 shooting.
He added three 3-pointers, five boards and three assists in his 38 minutes, but failed to record a defensive counter in this one. The Nuggets struggled mightily on defense against Houston’s whirring 3-point machine, but Gallinari did all he could to keep them afloat. On the season he’s produced like a top-50 player when healthy, but owners will have to bake in his injury risk and pending free agency to any evaluating him next season and beyond.
