Predict the Score: Dever Nuggets @ Utah Jazz


Alright the current standings look like this:

Josh Haslam 16 points

Steven Jaynes 8 points

Cody Powers 7 points

Tyson Newman 6 points

King Jackson 5 points

Chase Anderson 3 points

Buckle Up Jazz  1 point

Robby Barlow 1 point

 

Tonight’s game is the first game in over a week that the Jazz will play at home.  Both home games have been competitive which I figure should continue tonight.  The Jazz have lost 7 straight and welcome in a struggling Denver Nuggets team.  The Nuggets (1-4) under new coach Brian Shaw have tried getting away from their high tempo game which has had season success over the past few years.

Although the Nuggets are losing games the Jazz have found a way to look the worst I’ve ever seen them.  All 4 games last week the Jazz got down by 20 points or more in making them look like the leader for Wiggins or Parker.  Outside of the core 4 the Jazz have had zero help and if that is going to change then the Jazz will need to have help from a very weak bench.

The good news for the Jazz is Trey Burke should be back shortly for the Jazz pending a doctor review later today.

Who knows for tonight though so I will just guess that Trey does not play tonight.

My Prediction: Denver Nuggets 97 Utah Jazz 98

Although the Jazz haven’t competed for a week the Jazz are home and the players will put in the effort or they will be booed off the court.  Threes will fall tonight too.  Jazz win!

Put your prediction at the bottom and give yourself a chance to win the prize at the end of the year.  I’m changing the format just a little.  Every point you have gives yourself a raffle ticket for the drawing that will be done in April.  Prize to be announced all star weekend.  Good Luck!

    I was sure of this… What a shame for Ty Corbin : his team is completly lost as he seems to be. He was sweating a lot at the end of the game, does he feel the wind of change coming ? I really hope so
