Wednesday, January 23 finds the Denver Nuggets facing the. Utah Jazz as they meet for the second time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Saturday the Nuggets registered an easy victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Utah last played Monday hosting the Blazers in a tightly contested game they eventually lost.
Last season, the teams split the series and the Nuggets took the initial meeting this year. The Jazz holds the all-time record having bested the Nuggets in 112 of their 192 matches.
After holding the top spot in the Western Conference for most of the season the Nuggets got soundly beaten by Golden State last week as they promptly reclaimed the top ladder rung.
Still, the Nuggets have navigated a good portion of the season missing key players and are finally getting most of them back on the court. Even Isaiah Thomas is expected to make his season debut around the All-Star Break.
Six Nuggets scored in double-digits with Nikola Jokic recording another triple-double (19 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists) and Jamal Murray leading the way scoring 26 points.
Juan Hernangomez (abdominal strain) is questionable for Wednesday. Thomas (hip) as mentioned should be back mid-February while Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) and Michael Porter Jr. (back) are both out indefinitely.
Tough loss to the Blazers considering how close the game was and how many players the Jazz are missing particularly in the backcourt and on the wing.
Still, prior to the loss, the Jazz had won six straight behind two key factors. First, Donovan Mitchell seems to have adjusted to how teams will defend them and the Jazz have found their top level defense again.
In the loss to Portland, six Jazz players scored in double-digits with Mitchell leading the way (36 points).
Raul Neto (left groin strain), Tony Bradley (minor surgery to repair his right knee), Dante Exum (left ankle sprain) and Thabo Sefolosha (right hamstring strain) are all expected out until February.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Odds are off as of posting. The Nuggets have improved on the road this season but still are just one game above .500. Conversely, the Jazz started the season off struggling to win on their home court, but have fixed that issue posting a 13-9 record.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Jazz take care of home court, but Nuggets cover.
Gobert will need to deal with Jokic, but the Jazz should take this one at home and it may be one of those old fashioned low scoring battles.
