Nuggets vs Jazz prediction

The Nuggets could obviously blow the doors off, as they're head and shoulders the better team. The Jazz aren't winning, covering numbers, and they have shutdown some of their best players. Markkanen, Clarkson and Collins likely won't play for the Jazz. Gordon is questionable for the Nuggets with a foot injury. The Nuggets beat the Jazz by 21 points about a month ago. With all that said, the Nuggets have been on cruise control for a while now as they do just enough to win, and they've covered just 4 of their last 10 games. The Nuggets also play the Timberwolves tomorrow, a game that could determine who gets the first seed in the West. This is a win and get out game for the Nuggets. Give me the Jazz and the boatload of buckets.
