The Utah Jazz will take on the Denver Nuggets in game 4 of the first round NBA playoffs this season. Here we look at the Match Preview and TV Schedule for the game.
The Jazz will take on the Nuggets tonight in game 4 after a statement victory in the previous game. The Jazz thumped the Nuggets in one-sided contest as they ran away victorious with the scoreboard reading 124-87 at the end of the game.
Jazz gave one of the best postseason displays in recent years as the Nuggets looked clueless. Gobert bossed Jokic completely as the Nuggets offense could not kick on during the entirety of the game.
The Nuggets won the first game of the series but the Jazz came out victorious in the next two games to go up 2-1. Jokic and co. will look to bounce back tonight after a humiliating loss in game 3 and will look to contain the in-form all-star Donovan Mitchell and work their way around defensive machine Rudy Gobert.
Mitchell has been dictating Jazz’s offensive play and will need to be contained. On the other hand, Jokic has a massive task on his hand to get past Rudy Gobert. If Jokic finds it tough to score tonight, the Nuggets could very well find themselves 3-1 down in the series.

Nuggets vs Jazz preview
All eyes will be on the Nuggets to see how they bounce back after such a heavy loss wherein nothing seemed to go their way. The duo of Jokic and Murray managed to outscore the Jazz in the first game of the series. Both looked clueless in game 3 but will hope to get back on the winning side tonight. Jokic was contained by defensive juggernaut Rudy Gobert and looked out of ideas.
Michael Porter Jr and Jamal Murray need to help out Jokic offensively, as Gobert will be on the Nuggets star all game long. If Murray and MPJ can find their stride, we could be in for a close encounter.
The Jazz bounced back strongly after their tough loss in game 1 as they outplayed the Nuggets with the all-star duo of Mitchell and Gobert playing their parts well. The Nuggets have failed to stop the pick-and-roll play of Mitchell and Gobert and it has hurt them massively in the series so far.
Starters from both teams would be well-rested for this game, as a blowout win last time round meant 4th quarter had reserves playing. Hence, expect both teams to come out strong from the onset.
Nuggets expected starting line-up: Jamal Murray, Torrey Craig, Michael Porter Jr., Paul Millsap, Nikola Jokic
Jazz expected starting line-up: Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley, Joe Ingles, Royce O’Neale, Rudy Gobert
