The Denver Nuggets rolled over the Utah Jazz 107-83 on Tuesday at Pepsi Center. Denver limited Utah to 32.1 percent shooting as it earned its third win in a row. Here are five observations from the game.
1. Denver doing it with defense
The Nuggets have done a 180 on the defensive end since head coach Michael Malone called them out following a Dec. 6 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. Since the Nuggets allowed DeMarcus Cousins and Co. to rack up 123 points, they’ve started to make a habit of keeping opponents under the 90-point mark. Tuesday’s game marked the fifth time in 10 contests Denver held the opposition to 89 points or fewer.
