The Jazz have never won the NBA championship and they are hoping to go all the way and clinch their maiden title this season.
While Nuggets are also looking to clinch their maiden NBA championship this term despite having defensive problems.

Through eight games in the 'bubble', Nuggets opponents have buried 44.8% of their 3-point tries and their coach Michael Malone is unhappy with his defence.
“We have the worst defense in the bubble, so we haven’t seen much progress in any area in regards to anything defensive related."
“Communication, transition, pick-and-roll, 3-point, whatever you want to call it," Malone said on Denver Post ahead of the playoffs.
