The Denver Nuggets are only 2.5 games behind the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Northwest Division and looking to gain some momentum following back-to-back victories over the New Jersey Nets and the Miami Heat. This would certainly be the week to gain some ground, as the Nuggets play five games over the next seven days, including the first four games of a five-game road trip.
On Sunday evening, they will first need to deal with the Utah Jazz, as they host their division rivals at the Pepsi Center in Denver. The Jazz are just a half-game behind the Nuggets and have won seven of their last 10 games.The two teams faced off on December 28, in a game where Denver came away with a 117-100 win. They'll be hoping for a similar result on Sunday.
The game is scheduled to tip off at 8:00 PM ET. The television broadcast will air on Altitude and NBA League Pass.
