Utah Jazz at Denver Nuggets
Monday, August 17, 2020 at 1:30 pm
The Jazz have played the Nuggets tough all season long, and although they did not win a game during the season series, I expect Utah to keep it tight yet again in game one of this series. Utah will be without Mike Conley, but I expect Jordan Clarkson to do just fine in replacing his minutes. Denver was one of the worst teams in the league in defending the three-ball, while Utah had the best three-point % in the NBA. Coach Snyder says he wants his team to shoot more threes in this game, and I think that alone will keep Utah a player in this game until the end. I would not be surprised if Utah wins this game outright, but to play it safe, grab the 4.5 points.
