The Denver Nuggets evened their season record at 3-3 with a 104-84 win against the Utah Jazz on Friday.

After trailing by one point at the end of the first quarter, the Denver Nuggets dominated the second quarter on their way to a blowout 104-84 win against Utah on Friday.

The Jazz led 27-26 after the first quarter, but Denver stormed back in the second quarter outscoring Utah 27-11. Kenneth Faried led the charge for the Nuggets, scoring nine points while pulling down six rebounds in the second quarter. The big second quarter gave Denver a 53-38 halftime lead.
