Jazz crush Nuggets in the Salt Palace1 comment on this story
It had been nearly two weeks since the Utah Jazz had been in the Salt Palace, and they were obviously happy to be back home. How obvious? You could ask the Denver Nuggets that question, but you should probably ask from a distance.
As far as the Nuggets must be concerned, their 130-99 defeat in the home of the Jazz on Wednesday night is one of the primary reasons hypnotic therapy was invented. Remembering nights like this one could be dangerous to your basketball future.
The Jazz didn't play a game, they played a highlight film. In the first (decisive) half, they made 30-of-42 shots from the field, 13-of-14 from the free-throw line and outrebounded the dumbfounded Nuggets 30-13.
