He was the top scorer with 34 points. Bargnani also added 5 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 38 minutes on the court.
It was Raptors' sixth consecutive loss in a row.
But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen.
It's Bargnani's seventh year with the team.
He has individually a very good season with high stats. Bargnani averages: 17.9ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 41.3%, 3FGP: 36.2% and FT: 83.3% in the 15 games he played so far.

Gallinari scored 20 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 35 minutes.
The Denver Nuggets have 8-7 record this season.
It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row.

Gallinari has very impressive stats this year: 15.1ppg, 6.0rpg, 2.4apg, 2FGP: 46.2%, 3FGP: 23.4% and FT: 77.4% in the 14 games.

He scored 11 points (was perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line).
The Chicago Bulls have 7-7 record this season.
But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go.
This season Belinelli averages only 5.2ppg, 2FGP: 34.6%, 3FGP: 40.7% and FT: 89.5%.
