OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Danilo Gallinari scored five of his 21 points in the final 36 seconds and the Denver Nuggets closed with an 11-0 run to beat the Golden State Warriors 107-101 in double overtime on Saturday night.

Andre Iguodala added a pair of late free throws and the Nuggets, who didn't arrive in the Bay Area until 3:30 a.m. following a late flight from Utah, held on for their fourth consecutive victory after opening the season 0-3.

Kenneth Faried added 18 points and 17 rebounds, while Iguodala had 19 points for Denver.

Klay Thompson led Golden State with 23 points, but the second-year guard missed a 3-pointer with 25 seconds left. Carl Landry added 22 points and nine rebounds off the bench, but the Warriors went scoreless over the final 2:47.
