MILWAUKEE -- Kenneth Faried was called out for his timid play, dared to be more aggressive and take over games. That challenge came not from his coaches or teammates, but from members of his family. "My family came up to me and said, Hey, do what you are paid to do and that is play basketball," Faried said. "Stop worrying about everybody else, stop being nervous, stop being timid and play your game." Farieds high-energy play has been the driving force behind his recent hot streak, including a 26-point performance to carry the Denver Nuggets past the Milwaukee Bucks 101-90 Thursday night. Wilson Chandler scored 15 while J.J. Hickson added 14 points and 10 rebounds in a matchup of two teams left short-handed by deals they made before Thursday afternoons trade deadline. But Faried made the difference for the Nuggets, who broke a five-game losing streak. "Its good to feel what its like to get a W again," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. "Its been awhile for us." Faried, the No. 22 overall pick in the 2011 draft, has been impressive this February. Coming off a 21-point, 10-rebound performance against Phoenix, the forward also scored a career-high 28 against the Los Angeles Clippers earlier this month. "My mother challenged me," Faried said. "My father even stepped up and said, Play your game and do what you do." From opponents, one word keeps coming up: motor, motor, motor. "He has a 757 motor, man," Bucks guard O.J. Mayo said. "Hes not the tallest, but it comes down to energy and effort. He has one of those motors, man." Added Bucks coach Larry Drew, "If you dont match it, hell gobble you up. And thats what happened tonight." Caron Butler scored 17 for the Bucks, who have not won two straight games all season. Ersan Ilyasova had 14 points and 11 rebounds. "We just seemed like we never got into a rhythm," Drew said. "I thought every time we seemed to try to put together a little bit of a push, we just never seemed to sustain a rhythm." With Denver leading 78-67 going into the fourth quarter, Milwaukee got within five points on John Hensons dunk off an alley-oop from Giannis Antetokounmpo, plus a pair of jumpers by Caron Butler. But the Nuggets responded with a 12-2 run, including a powerful two-handed putback dunk by Faried, and put the game away. "Motor," Bucks forward John Henson said of Faried. "Thats his game, thats how he gets his money. His motor." Earlier in the day, Denver sent disgruntled guard Andre Miller to Washington, getting back forward Jan Vesely from Washington in a three-team deal that also involved Philadelphia. Miller hasnt played since he got into a verbal altercation with Shaw earlier this year. Shaw said before the game that "nobody wanted to have the situation come down to what it came to," and the deal would be better for both sides. The Bucks sent guards Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour to Charlotte, getting guard Ramon Sessions and forward Jeff Adrien in return. Left with remarkably short benches, the Nuggets used eight players in Thursdays game, and the Bucks used nine. Milwaukee played Antetokounmpo at point guard at times. Milwaukee even brought back O.J. Mayo, who had missed 10 games because of a combination of illness and conditioning issues. Mayo scored 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting in 23 minutes, but had an odd moment when he appeared to be caught tying his shoe on defence while the Nuggets had the ball in play. "Sorry about that," Mayo said. "Just trying to stay safe." Overall, Drew was pleased with the play of Mayo -- a player the Bucks will be counting on the rest of the season. "I thought he did a really good job," Drew said. "I saw some really good energy in him." NOTES: Shaw confirmed before the game that JaVale McGee had surgery. McGee sustained a stress fracture of his left tibia in November. . Bucks guard Brandon Knight was a game-time scratch because of a right heel laceration. . Shaw said before the game that he couldnt comment on a potential trade of forward Jordan Hamilton to Houston for guard Aaron Brooks. New York Giants Jerseys . "All he says is, its crazy," DeMar DeRozan told reporters following Torontos win over the Pistons Wednesday. The Raptors longest-serving members, Johnson and DeRozan have had two coaches and 56 different teammates in five seasons with the club, all without appearing in a single playoff game. Eli Apple Jersey .C. -- Al Jefferson said he feels like hes playing the best basketball of his 10-year NBA career. http://www.nygiantsfanaticshop.com/Blac ... ml?cat=871.

Phoenix originally signed Barbosa to a 10-day contract on Jan. 8 after Eric Bledsoe injured his knee and then signed him to another 10-day deal.MADRID, Spain -- Olympiakos and Bayer Leverkusen reached the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday, with either Juventus or Galatasaray set to join them after their match in Istanbul was abandoned because of a snowstorm. Match officials stopped play after 31 minutes, ruling the field was too dangerous to play on. The last hour will now be played on Wednesday, kicking off at 3pm local time (1300 GMT). Olympiakos beat 8-man Anderlecht 3-1 to advance, edging out two-time champion Benfica, whose 2-1 victory over Paris St. Germain was not enough. Leverkusen won 1-0 at Real Sociedad to finish behind Group A winner Manchester United, which beat Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0. Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score nine times in group play as the Portugal forwards 26th goal of the season helped carry Real Madrid to a 2-0 victory at Copenhagen to wrap up Group B. "Were first in the group, the team played very well on a very bad pitch," Ronaldo said. "I scored a goal and Im happy that I can help the team." Manchester City finally managed to secure a victory over a European heavyweight, coming from behind to win 3-2 at Bayern Munich to end the defending champions record winning streak at 10 games. City fell one goal shy of taking Group D over Bayern on head-to-head results after the clubs finished tied on 15 points. Bayern charged into a 2-0 lead by the 12th minute at the Allianz Arena before David Silva began the rally with a 28th-minute goal. City was inspired by the Spain midfielder and, after Aleksandar Kolarov equalized from the penalty spot, James Milner side footed home a low screamer to secure the win in the 62nd. "This is a very important result for us," City coach Manuel Pellegrini said. Back in Manchester, Phil Jones scored in the 67th minute at Old Trafford as United continued to find its form in Europe while it struggles domestically. Uniteds victory helped Leverkusen, which won through Omer Topraks second-half goal, as it condemned Shakhtar to a place in the Europa League after finishing third in the group. Benfica joins Shakhtar in Europes second-tier competition despite rallying from Edinson Cavanis 37th-minute opener for Group C winner PSG. Lima converted a penalty on the stroke of halftime and Nicolas Gaitan scored from Maxi Pereiras diverted cross in the 58tth, but the result wasnt enough for the Portuguese team because of the result across the continent in Greece.dddddddddddd Javier Saviola scored two goals for Olympiakos but was shaking his head in the 50th with the score at 1-1 when Anderlecht goalkeeper Silvio Proto saved his penalty. Saviola made up for that miss eight minutes later after swiveling to stab home his second for 2-1. "Everything counts more in the Champions league: scoring, winning, celebrating," Saviola said. "So this is a great moment." Proto stopped another penalty before being the third Andrlecht player sent off three minutes into stoppage time. Substitute Alejandro Dominguez beat outfield player Aleksandar Mitrovic -- who filled in for Proto. After a slow start, Madrid is certainly showing its mettle as a title favourite. The team extended its unbeaten run in all competitions to nine games, despite Ronaldo also having a second-half penalty saved. Luka Modric got nine-time champion Madrid going with an exquisitely taken shot from just outside the area in the 25th, and Madrid never looked back with Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema running the attack. "Today I wanted to score, like every game. Every goal is important to help the team win and today it was extra special to break the record," said Ronaldo, who had been sidelined over two weeks with a hamstring injury. "But I dont think about records. The principal objective is to win trophies." Madrid topped Group B with 16 points. Juventus needs just a draw against Galatasaray to advance, while the Turkish club needs a win. Also in Group D, substitute Tomas Wagner volleyed home a 90th-minute winner as Viktoria Plzen sealed its place in the Europa League with a 2-1 victory against nine-man CSKA Moscow. Ahmed Musa headed CSKA ahead in the 65th but Daniel Kolar nodded home an equalizer after Alan Dzagoev was red carded. CSKA midfielder Pontus Wernbloom was sent off moments after Wagner ensured coach Pavel Vrbas last Champions League game in charge of the club before he takes over the Czech Republic was a memorable one. Each of the eight football grounds unveiled a banner that read "Madiba, The World Will Never Forget" before kickoff in honour of former South Africa president Nelson Mandela, who died on Thursday at age 95.
