Nuggets-Jazz Preview

(AP) -- Resurgent defensive play has been the difference for the Utah Jazz of late, as they've won back-to-back games since last week's sloppy performance against the Denver Nuggets.

The Jazz can exact some revenge Wednesday night as they try to salvage a four-game series split with the visiting Nuggets.

Utah (33-41) ranks as the NBA's stingiest team with 94.9 points allowed per game, and it's gone 29-7 when allowing 96 or fewer. The Jazz beat Oklahoma City 94-89 on Saturday and Minnesota 104-84 on Monday after allowing an average of 102.8 points during a four-game skid.
