The Nuggets, who had an awful December (5-10), saw their own winning streak come to an end on Monday night when they were downed 103-118 by the Jazz in Salt Lake City. Denver, which had reeled off five straight heading into their meeting with Utah, shot just 26.9 percent from beyond the arc in the loss while the Jazz drained 55.7 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from long range.
The Nuggets have won four of their last six games against the Warriors; however, Golden State handed Denver an 89-81 loss when the two teams hooked up at the Pepsi Center on December 23rd.
