Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Danilo Gallinari had a team-best 19 points with eight rebounds and the Denver Nuggets tied a franchise-record with their 15th consecutive win, a 101-95 decision over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday.

Denver, which hasn't won 15 in a row since the 1969-70 season, was able to accomplish the feat despite missing starting guard Ty Lawson for the second straight game with a bruised heel.

Kenneth Faried came through with 17 points and nine boards, Andre Iguodala had 15 points with eight assists and Denver received 11 points apiece from Andre Miller and JaVale McGee in the team's 17th straight win at the Pepsi Center.

The Kings had a brief two-game winning streak snapped. DeMarcus Cousins scored a game-high 24 points and 15 rebounds, while John Salmons had 18 points in the setback.
