Looking to extend a two-game winning streak, the Denver Nuggets will face the Utah Jazz at Pepsi Center on Friday.
After losing their first three games of the season in unfortunate fashion, the Denver Nuggets have finally caught up to themselves and won two straight games. They'll look for a third straight win Friday night as they host the rival Utah Jazz at the Pepsi Center on national TV, with ESPN broadcasting the game.
Through five games, the Jazz are part of a three-way tie with the Nuggets and the Portland Trail Blazers for last place in the Northwest division. All three teams have gone 2-3 through the start of the year. Utah is coming off of a win against the reeling Los Angeles Lakers in their last game.
Friday's game for the Nuggets will be the first game of their second back-to-back this week, heading out to California on Saturday to face the Golden State Warriors.
Event: Denver Nuggets vs. Utah Jazz, Pepsi Center
Game Time: Friday, Nov. 9, 8:30 p.m. MT
