Utah Jazz vs Denver Nuggets
The Nuggets will return home after a perfect 2-0 road trip as they will take on the Jazz on Saturday. The Nuggets are coming off a comfortable win against the Cavs while the Jazz wasn’t able to pick up a win against the Wolves. Game tips off at 9:00 PM ET.
Utah Jazz's Latest Performance :
The Jazz is off to a sub-par start as they are now 4-3 to start the season, Mitchell should be making his return after dealing with a hamstring injury if he isn’t able to get back healthy in time this would an open an opportunity for Dante Exum and O’Neale for more playing time. The Jazz is looking like they are going to shorthand against the Nuggets. Rudy Gobert should be good to go against the Nuggets in last game he scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in 34 mins of action. Playing against the Jokic will be a great challenge because they are considered two of the best big man in the league today. It will be hard for the Jazz to score because they are missing their best player but this Jazz team has a fighting spirit as they should keep the game competitive no matter who is on the floor.
Denver Nuggets's Latest Performance :
The Denver Nuggets are off to a flying 7-1 start to the season. After failing to make the playoffs last season by just a game this season they are playing with much more intensity and the will to win. They are coming off a fairly easy win against the Cavs who are struggling mightily. The Nuggets will be able to play against a tougher opponent in the Utah Jazz. Leading the way for the Nuggets in this win was not Jokic he finished with only 4 points in the contest. Instead, it was Hernangomez who scored a season-high 23 points including 5 threes. Before the game, coach Mike Malone said he was going to extend his rotation on a back-to-back set, and Hernangomez capitalized on his opportunity. Playing against the Jazz, Jokic will have to go up against Rudy Gobert this should be the matchup that everyone will be waiting to see. The Jazz moves the ball extremely fast and will look to attack Denver from the wing.

Against The Spread Selection: Denver Nuggets
My reason for the pick :

The Jazz will be missing their best player in Mitchell as look for Harris to take advantage of that and have a huge game for the Nuggets. This goes to show how valuable Mitchell is to this Jazz team.
