Gallo’s length at 6-foot-10 is sure to bother a 6-foot-3 point guard like Dragic, who’s known to be quite the rugged customer, regardless of who is in front of him.
The Nuggets forward looked bewildered when the referees intervened, and he ultimately ended up getting the better of the Slovenian international, outscoring him 29 to 22 on the night and giving Denver a much-needed 116-113 win down the stretch.
