What to Know

The Denver Nuggets and the Utah Jazz will face off in a Northwest Division clash at 9 p.m. ET May 7 at Vivint Smart Home Arena. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

The Nuggets strolled past the New York Knicks with points to spare on Wednesday, taking the matchup 113-97. It was another big night for Denver's center Nikola Jokic, who posted a double-double on 32 points and 12 rebounds along with six assists. Jokic's night made it three games in a row in which he has scored at least 30 points.

Meanwhile, Utah was completely in charge on Wednesday, breezing past the San Antonio Spurs 126-94 at home. With the Jazz ahead 66-42 at the half, the game was all but over already. Among those leading the charge for them was point guard Jordan Clarkson, who had 30 points in addition to six boards.

The Nuggets are expected to lose this next one by 4.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 4-2 against the spread when expected to lose.

Denver is now 44-22 while Utah sits at 48-18. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Denver enters the contest with a 48.50% field goal percentage, good for fourth best in the league. But the Jazz have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 44.60%, which places them second in the league. We'll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
