Utah Jazz Team Report – November 6

=== Utah Jazz Team Report – November 6 ===

(Sports Network) – The Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets play the first of a home-
and-home set tonight, as the squad meet at the Pepsi Center.

The Jazz and Nuggets will play once again on Monday at the Delta Center. The
Northwest Division rivals will also play on February 8, 2005 at Denver and on
March 30th, 2005 at Utah.

Utah tries to start a campaign with three straight wins for the first time
since 2000-01, when it opened the season with five wins in a row.

On Friday, Keith McLeod posted his first career double-double with 17 points
and 10 assists, leading the Jazz to an easy 102-80 victory over Golden State
at The Arena.

McLeod was 7-of-8 from the field in 28 minutes for the Jazz, who opened their
season with a convincing 26-point win over the Lakers on Wednesday. Carlos
Boozer added 16 points and nine rebounds and Andrei Kirilenko scored 14 in the
win. Bell and Matt Harpring each chipped in 11 points.

In 2003-04, Denver won three of the four meetings between the two squads. Utah
has won five of eight and 10 of the last 14 contests in this series. The Jazz
have lost two straight at Denver.
