Rookie Kris Dunn scored a game-high 27 points in an impressive pro debut, but it wasn't enough to save the Minnesota Timberwolves, who fell, 88-82, to the Denver Nuggets in the Las Vegas Summer League opener for both teams Friday at Thomas and Mack Center.

The fifth overall pick in this year's draft, Dunn was 10 of 18 from the field with five rebounds, three steals and two assists. Dunn took over late, scoring 10 of Minnesota's 12 fourth-quarter points, but it wasn't enough as a 9-0 run early in the period gave the Nuggets a comfortable lead.

Adrien Payne totaled 17 points for Minnesota (0-1) despite shooting 6-for-20 from the field. Point guard Tyus Jones finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists.

Both teams struggled from the foul line and from long distance, shooting less than 67 percent from the free-throw line and less than 22 percent from 3-point range.

Emmanuel Mudiay had 23 points, eight rebounds and six assists to lead Denver (1-0). Gary Harris scored 22 and rookie Jamal Murray had 14 points and six rebounds. Fellow rookie Juancho Hernangomez finished with 13 points and seven rebounds.

The Nuggets face the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. The Timberwolves play Sunday against the Toronto Raptors.
