*All statistics, rankings, standings and records are accurate as of this writing at 5:00 p.m. ET on Monday, Jan. 23.
The Utah Jazz enter this contest with a lot of momentum on their side.
They’ve won six straight, and when you look back further, they’ve compiled seven wins in their last eight outings and won 11 out of their last 14.
(Note: The Jazz have a Monday contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder that has not been played as of the time of this writing)
On the year, Utah is posting 99.7 points per game, which is only good enough for 26th in the NBA. But when you consider this team’s slow pace, it makes their top-notch offensive efficiency something worth celebrating.
Defensively, this group allows just 95.3 points per contest.
That number is good enough for 1st in the league, and while a slow pace certainly contributes to that standing, an elite defensive efficiency is proof that even in an up-tempo environment, Utah can play the role of enforcer.
The Denver Nuggets don’t have the same kind of momentum on their side that the Jazz do, but they’ve found a decent amount of success dating back to their last six games.
They’ve won four out of those six contests, but the problem is that two of their last three have been losses.
On the year, the Nuggets are scoring 109.8 points per contest. That number is good enough for fourth in the league.
Defensively, this squad is struggling to keep up. It’s giving up 111.3 points per night, which is only good enough for 28th in the NBA.
For those doing the math in their head, you can’t stop now — we’ve got you covered.
That’s a net negative of 1.5 points per outing.
Utah, on the other hand, nets a positive 4.4 points per contest.
Proof that fewer points doesn’t have to equal less success.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The line has shifted in this one over to the Nuggets, but we’re not buying it.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Utah ATS
When the Jazz are healthy, very few teams in the league can compete with them.
As it turns out, the Jazz are healthy entering this contest…and Denver is not (nor will it ever be at any point the rest of this season) one of those teams that’s going to challenge for a win against the spread, or straight up.
