The Wolves fell in Denver despite a solid game from J.J. Barea, who scored 15 points with three 3-pointers, four assists and three steals.

Luke Ridnour chipped in seven points in 30 minutes, and Ricky Rubio had 11 points, six assists, but the short-handed Wolves were overwhelmed by the Nuggets fast and deep lineup. Barea has double-digit points in five of the past six games, averaging 1.8 threes during that span.
