The Denver Nuggets will host the Utah Jazz as the teams meet for the first time since playing to Game 7 in the Disney bubble.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Nuggets winning two out of three. The Jazz holds the all-time record having won 115 matches of the 198 played.
When Donovan Mitchell’s shot is falling the Utah Jazz becomes a complete team. That opens up the perimeter for Bojan Bogdanovic and Mike Conley.
Factor in Rudy Gobert manning the paint on both sides of the hardwood and they become a matchup nightmare. When Mitchell’s shot isn’t falling teams simply play him to shoot and the Jazz become a middle-tier squad.
Through the initial four games of the season Mitchell was shooting a meager 34.1 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from the perimeter.
Through the next eight games, Mitchell found his rhythm shooting 47.1 percent from the field and 45.1 percent from deep.
On Friday, the Jazz got the better version of Mitchell as he scored 26 points and connected on six of his ten 3-pointers. Rudy Gobert delivered a double-double of 15 points and 13 rebounds along with four blocks.
Bogdanovic scored 17 while Mike Conley chipped in with 15 as they combined to shoot 5 of 9 from the perimeter.
Jordan Clarkson continues to put up Sixth Man stats with 16 points. seven rebounds. and four assists while George Niang scored 10 as the other double-figure contributor.
Joe Ingles missed the last two games with a sore Achilles and is questionable for Sunday while Juwan Morgan is out indefinitely in the health and safety protocol program.
Nikola Jokic is averaging a triple-double this season and collected another in the win versus the Warriors. It consisted of 23 points, 14 assists, and 10 rebounds.
Jamal Murray served up 17 points, nine rebounds, and six assists while Will Barton added 17 and Paul Millsap chipped in 12 points.
The loss of Jerami Grant, Mason Plumlee, and Torrey Craig in the offseason has affected the Nuggets, particularly defensively.
Integrating players into those roles will take time and subsequently, Denver boasts a .500 record through 12 games.
The group expected to pick up much of the slack is Michael Porter Jr., Bol Bol, JaMychal Green, PJ Dozier, and Monte Morris.
The latter trio was a factor in the win versus the Dubs as Green contributed 15 points and nine rebounds while Morris and Dozier scored 11 and 10 points respectively.
Gary Harris (personal) missed the last two games and is questionable for Sunday. Michael Porter Jr. is out indefinitely dealing with health and safety protocols.
Greg Whittington has a left knee sprain that will keep him out indefinitely.
