But that doesn’t reflect how close of first-round series this could be between the No. 3 seed Denver and sixth-seeded Utah.The games were decided by a combined 11 points, including a double overtime thriller in the bubble where the Nuggets won 134-132. The Jazz could be short-handed after announcing Mike Conley left the bubble for the birth of his son. He will be subject to a quarantine upon his return.The Nuggets and Jazz are very similar in that both boast All-Star centers, electric guards and reliable supporting casts.
