Nuggets vs. Jazz: Denver goes for fifth straight win

Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE

The Denver Nuggets will try to keep their winning streak going on Monday night when they face the rival Utah Jazz.

The Denver Nuggets are in the midst of another hot streak, and they'll be hoping that they can ride that streak to a big win over the Utah Jazz on Monday night. They clobbered the New Orleans Hornets in their last game, 102-84, for one of their biggest wins of the season, and look like they're contenders to take over the Northwest Division if their hot streak can be extended further.

Denver downed the Jazz in their first meeting of the season, a 104-84 rout at the Pepsi Center. This time they'll be in Salt Lake City, another of a long string of road games for the Nuggets.

Mo Williams could be out for the Jazz for a second straight game, which would take some of the strain off of the Nuggets with one less playmaker on the court for Utah. Denver will go into the game with guns blazing, having rested their players during the big win over New Orleans and having a day off in the interim. Andre Iguodala was the leader of the pack during Denver's last two wins and is likely to get another 30-plus minute stay on the court against Utah as the Nuggets try and ride the hot hands.

The game will be at Energy Solutions Arena at 7 p.m. MT. It will be televised on Altitude 2.
