Pistons lose despite Ben Gordon's 45 points

Posted: Updated:

JaVale McGee rebounded a missed free throw following a basket with five seconds remaining and dunked to give the Nuggets a 116-115 win over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday
night.

Not a bad Denver debut for McGee, who completed a four-point possession salvaged Denver's dignity after the Nuggets blew a 25-point lead.

Detroit's Ben Gordon scored 45 points and made all nine of his 3-pointers.

McGee, in his first game with Denver following his acquisition a week ago as part of the trade that sent Nene to Washington, finished with 15 points. Ty Lawson led the Nuggets with 25 points
and former-Piston Arron Afflalo had 23.

Brandon Knight had 16 points for Detroit.

Greg Monroe added 13 points and Jonas Jerebko had 12.
