The Denver Nuggets were finally able to defeat the Utah Jazz giving them a current three game win streak.

After two games where the Jazz man handled the Nuggets this year, Denver finally gave Utah a taste of their own medicine. The Nuggets blew out the Jazz in front of the Pepsi Center crowd by a final score of 107-83.

Denver is starting to play consistent, stifling defense and it is a great sight. After holding the defending champions to 3-27 shooting from deep and under 90 points, the Nuggets followed it up by holding the Jazz to a horrible 32.1% shooting from the field. The potential defensively has been their all season long, it has just been a matter of getting things to click on that side of the floor.

The team is finally starting to gel and mesh together like many experts were saying at the beginning of the season and the results speak for themselves.

Granted, the Jazz did not actually play their best player, Rudy Gobert, in this match up. However, a win is a win, especially over a division rival and Denver is not going to complain about this outcome.

Jamal Murray showcased his potential to the max in this win as led the way scoring with 22 points on 60% shooting. He also did a solid job for a point guard rebounding the ball as he came away with eight boards.

Gary Harris was solid as usual as he finished with 15 points and also came away with five assists.

We are starting to get accustomed to Wilson Chandler again and in the good way, seeing him put up very efficient numbers which aid the entire team.

Next: Denver found their missing link

It was a great win at home and actually much needed as the Nuggets will need to take some momentum with them as the travel to Minnesota for a back to back in their next game.
