The seven-year pro posted a season-high scoring total, which was greatly accomplished through 18 visits to the charity stripe. Gallinari has been terrific in attacking the basket over the last two games in particularly, recording 32 free-throw attempts over that span. The 27-year-old's health has largely remained intact throughout the season's first half, rendering him the linchpin of the Denver offense and allowing him to average a career-high 19.8 points per game to date this season.
Gallinari had 24 points (5-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 12-14 FT), two rebounds, and one steal in 37 minutes during the Nuggets' 85-81 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday. Gallinari struggled mightily from the field in the close loss. However, as per usual, he did a fantastic job of drawing fouls and earning free-throw attempts. Gallo gained half of his points at the charity stripe, which is a good sign that he can put up decent scoring totals even when he has an off night. He has scored 20 or more points in 13 of 17 appearances since re-joining the lineup to start 2016, and he is hands down the team's top option on offense.
Gallinari scored 23 points (8-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 41 minutes during Saturday's overtime loss to the Pacers. It's his third straight game with 20 or more points, and Gallinari closes out January averaging an impressive 23.5 points, 5.0 boards, 2.1 assists and 1.7 threes a night. If he can stay healthy, the 27-year-old wing is headed for a career season as the focal point of the Nuggets' offense.

Gallinari's minutes and production are set in stone and he's a great play to roll out in every format moving forward.
Gallinari had 23 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, an assist and a block in a loss against the Celtics on Wednesday. Gallinari was tied for the team-high in points with Will Barton, and this is the normal distribution of production that we usually see from Denver. Gallo had the most shots for Denver tonight and that should continue if everything remains the same within the lineup. It is a little troubling that Gallo only hit one three-pointer in a matchup he should have taken full advantage of, but it was still an undoubtedly respectable performance.
