The Denver Nuggets haven't experienced much fun in Salt Lake City in recent seasons. The red-hot Nuggets aim to change their luck on Wednesday when they look to halt a seven-game road losing streak against the Utah
Jazz.

Utah had its season-best six-game winning streak snapped on Monday when it suffered a 109-104 home loss against the Portland Trail Blazers.The recent strong play by the Jazz has been fueled by star guard Donovan Mitchell, who scored 36 points in the loss to Portland.Mitchell has scored more than 20 points in each of the past nine games and is averaging 29.8 points during the stretch.
