The Denver Nuggets won their ninth game in a row on Saturday.

Danilo Gallinari had 19 points and nine rebounds to lead the Denver Nuggets to a 111-103 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.

Eight different Denver players scored in double figures, including JaVale McGee, Andre Miller and Wilson Chandler who had 13, 10 and 10 points respectively off the bench.

Kyrie Irving led the Cavaliers with 26 points but shot just 10-of-24 from the field. Alonzo Gee added 20 points on a perfect 8-of-8 shooting from the field, but Cleveland shot just 44.0 percent from the floor as a team.

The Nuggets overcame their 20 turnovers by shooting 50.0 percent from the field and outrebounding the Cavaliers by eight (46-38).

The loss snapped Cleveland's three-game winning streak. The Nuggets have now won nine games in a row, which is the longest current winning streak in the league. Denver is currently fourth in the Western Conference standings and trails the Los Angeles Clippers by one game for third.
