The Nuggets shot 54.1 percent from the field and won their sixth consecutive game.
Danilo Gallinari scored 23 for the Nuggets and Kenneth Faried scored 19 and chalked up 12 of Denver's 40 rebounds.
The game was tied 50-50 at halftime but Denver bounded away on an 11-2 run to start the third quarter and then snuffed out a fourth-quarter rally by the Kings with a pair of buckets by Andre Miller.
