The Utah Jazz will hit the road on Sunday for a Northwest Division matchup in Denver against the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center.
The Jazz will be looking to end a three game losing skid after falling 111-102 to the Rockets in Houston on Saturday.
The Nuggets lost their fourth game out of the previous five to the Toronto Raptors in overtime 113-111 on Friday night.
Utah has been able to come away with a win in each of the five matchups between these two, including a 100-84 win the last time they were on the floor together.
It hasn’t been pretty as of late for the Utah Jazz.
They have fallen back to the .500 mark for the year after dropping three in a row to the likes of Memphis, Chicago, and most recently the Houston Rockets on Saturday.
Things won’t be any easier on Sunday playing in Denver in the second of back-to back games.
The Jazz found themselves down by 11 when they went into the locker room at halftime against the Rockets and couldn’t put together a long enough run to climb back into the game.
They were able to shoot over 51 percent from the floor while finding the basket on 12 of 27 from behind the big boy line.
Rodney Hood let the way for the Jazz on Saturday, finding cotton for 25 points in the losing effort.
The Jazz have struggled when it comes to putting the ball in the net and have only been scoring an average of 95.9 points a night this season.
A lot of that has to do with their lack of ability to rebound and create second chance opportunities, pulling in an average only 41.7 boards a game. They haven’t learned that winners share the ball and are only handing out 17.7 assists per game, currently the worst in the NBA.
The Denver Nuggets were allowed plenty of opportunity to come away with a win against the Toronto Raptors, but obviously didn’t have enough Gatorade in the jug.
The loss left the Nuggets with just a 1-4 record when playing on their own court this season.
They were only able to hit 47 percent from the field , but they played tight on defense holding the Raptors to just 45.7 percent. They couldn’t have hit the ocean if the beach was behind the 3-point line, only making 4 of 25 from behind the arc.
The 19 turnovers also played a major role in the loss.
