(AP) Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points to lead a balanced attack and the Denver Nuggets extended their winning streak to 15 games with a 101-95 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night.


Kenneth Faried had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Nuggets, who have won a franchise-best 17 straight at home.


And they did it while Ty Lawson (right heel) and Wilson Chandler (shoulder), two of their top players, were out with injuries.


It took until the final minutes to hold off the Kings, who got 24 points and 15 rebounds from DeMarcus Cousins.


John Salmons, who finished with 18 points, hit a 3-pointer with 16 seconds left to get the Kings within four points, but Andre Miller sank two foul shots to seal the win.
