Nuggets are now 33-18 in the Western Conference.
The Denver Nuggets extended their winning streak to nine games with a 111-103 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.
Danilo Gallinari led the way with 19 points, nine rebounds and two blocked shots, helping the Nuggets to move to 15-2 since January 2.
The Italian small forward was helped out by several of his team-mates, including Kenneth Faried (17 points), Andre Iguodala (14 points) and JaVale McGee (13), with no less than eight players for the Nuggets finishing in double figures.
Kyrie Irving led the Cavaliers in scoring after posting up 26 points, six rebounds and seven assists. However, that wasn’t enough for the home team to stop a Nuggets side on their longest win streak since a 10-gamer back in March 2005.
The Nuggets dominated in the paint, outscoring the Cavaliers 62-32 while taking advantage on the fast-break which saw them collect 19 points.
After the game coach George Karl questioned how none of the players on his roster picked up an All-Star invitation, but was keen to stress his men are fully focused on shocking the world by becoming the first team to win a championship without an All-Star in their line-up.
The Nuggets now head to Boston on Sunday to take on the Celtics, while the Cavaliers continue their seven-game home stretch when the Minnesota Timberwolves visit on Monday night.
