MILWAUKEE (AP) — Corey Brewer scored a season-high 22 points as the Denver Nuggets started their five-game road trip with 105-95 victory against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.
Brandon Jennings scored 12 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter and first-round pick Tobias Harris came off the bench for 14 for the Bucks, who lost for the first time in five home games.
Milwaukee last opened a season with five straight home wins in the 2007-08 season.
Jennings’ driving layup got Milwaukee to 100-91 with 2:47 left, but Danilo Gallinari made two free throws and a 3 that stopped the Bucks from creeping any closer.
Al Harrington added 16 points and Gallinari and Nene each had 14 for Denver.
