Uniform Matchup:

Luckily for Denver, the league MVP is still healthy and just named the NBA’s Western Conference Player of the Month. He’s a dominant player, and when he’s in the game, they can win no matter who else is on the team.

The Jazz will look to Bojan Bogdanovic and Mike Conley to lead the team while Gobert and Mitchell are injured. Bogdanovic, in particular, has loved playing against the Nuggets. Since joining the Jazz, Bogdanovic has averaged 25.1 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in 10 games against the Nuggets. If he can take over again, Utah might have a chance.
