The NBA is kicking off the season with an 11-game schedule that begins on Monday evening. The Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets face off in a Western Conference matchup that is one of the most anticipated games. The defending champions are 3-0 going into this match, whereas Utah is 1-2.
To maintain their winning streak for the current campaign, the Denver Nuggets need to win one more game. The Denver Nuggets are trying to get off to their initial 4-0 beginning since the 2018–19 campaign. The Denver Nuggets are scoring 53.2% of the time to average 118.3 points, while giving up 43.4% of the time to opponents. Jamal Murray is averaging 20.7 points plus 1.7 rebounds. In addition to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s 2.3 rebounds, Michael Porter Jr. is the 3rd player to score in double figures.
With 25.5 points per game, 12.5 rebounds, and 9.0 assists per game, Jokic looks set to an MVP-caliber start for the Nuggets. The fact that he is virtually averaging a triple-double every game is absurd.
To return to a .500 record, the Utah Jazz are searching for their initial road victory. Six of the Utah Jazz’s previous seven away contests have ended in losses. In terms of shooting percentage, the Utah Jazz average 112.7 points on 44.2% of their attempts and giving up 124.7 points from 50.4%. Jordan Clarkson averages 14.7 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, while Lauri Markkanen averages 24.3 points with 8.3 rebounds. The third player to score in double figures is John Collins, while Collin Sexton pulls down two rebounds.
Following the Jazz’s inability to make any significant off-season acquisitions, expectations that are low are leaving a lot of individuals questioning their heads in disbelief. The front management acquired Taylor Hendricks (9th), Keyonte George (16th), as well as Brice Sensabaugh (28th) as the only acquisitions via the draft.
