Season series: Nuggets, 3-1. The Jazz won the last meeting on Feb. 6.
Comment: The Nuggets looked poised to lock up the No. 2 seed, possibly even challenge the Lakers for the one spot. Denver finished 18-11 after the All-Star break and slipped to the fourth seed. The Jazz went 21-10 in that same span to finish with the same record as their first round foes.
Benbow says: Jazz in 6. Denver's playing for ailing coach George Karl, but a Range Rover full of popcorn says Deron Williams and the Jazz pull it out.
