DENVER, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Danilo Gallinari canned seven of his 11 shots from the field en route to 26 points Sunday and the Denver Nuggets breezed past Utah 101-91.

Gallinari was deadly from the free-throw line as well, connecting on 11-of-12 free throws for the Nuggets, who won for the fourth time in six games.

Kenneth Faried also helped Denver's cause with a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds.

Utah, meanwhile, managed only 35.9 percent shooting from the floor in losing for the sixth time in nine games.

Paul Millsap led the Jazz with 15 points and seven and Gordon Hayward popped in 14 points off the bench for Utah.
