Utah was able to keep things close in the first half, as Denver only entered the break with a four-point advantage. However, the Nuggets were able to extend their lead and put the game out of reach in the third and fourth quarters, outscoring the Jazz 61-46 in the second half.
Gallinari scored 26 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field and went 11-of-12 from the free throw line. The forward also contributed five rebounds, three assists and one steal.
Beyond Gallinari, Andre Iguodala (18), Ty Lawson (14), Kenneth Faried (15) and Andre Miller (11) also finished the night in double figures. Faried would up with a double-double, as he also contributed 10 rebounds.
The Nuggets’ next matchup comes tomorrow when they travel to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers.
