Gamenotes

Utah needs a victory to secure a winning record at home (currently 20-20 at ESA). ... The Nuggets are locked into the No. 5 spot for the upcoming playoffs. ... Denver defeated Utah in Salt Lake City, 103-101, on March 3, handing the Jazz their seventh-consecutive home loss at the time. The Jazz are currently on a five-game home losing streak. ... The Jazz will likely be without the services of injured players Andrei Kirilenko (knee), Raja Bell (foot) and Ronnie Price (leg), and Kyrylo Fesenko (thumb) and Mehmet Okur (back) are out. ... A win would lift the Jazz to consecutive victories for only the second time in Tyrone Corbin's brief head coaching stint
