Denver Nuggets vs Utah Jazz (By: Umicuma)
Home side is again at the good run and they did showed quality in big Western derby against direct rival from Oklahoma. They seem to be confident at the moment with 21 of 22 previous home victories (defeat only from Champion Golden State), and no loss since All Star break. However, Denver will have real test tonight when face another good rival from the Conference. Utah is secure in playoff position practically from the start and they have squad which is able to beat any side in the competition.
Visitors have won previous duel against Denver, in the game with incidents among players on the court. It resulted with Denver main player Jokic banned for one match and fined with money. There will be tension between players tonight for sure, and since host did have similar duel with Oklahoma, Utah may deal with it better in this one. Team from Salt Lake City will miss few players, including Raul Neto, Rubio, but leading ones are in top of the form. Denis Mitchell with Rudy Gobert are one of the best playmaker - center duo in the league. Filled with good support at the arc, where Favors is bringing power, Utah should be able to match Jokic and Milsap under the basket.
Utah should be more fresh for this duel and if manage to lower the score of the game, they have chance to break Denver winning run here+
