Clarkson helps Jazz to 5th straight, beat Nuggets 109-105

DENVER (AP) The game had a certain intensity - not necessarily playoff intensity, Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic cautioned, but definitely a tension.

They always do when these two fierce Northwest Division rivals take the court.

Reserve Jordan Clarkson scored 23 points, Donovan Mitchell added 18 and the Utah Jazz beat the Nuggets 109-105 Sunday night in their first meeting since a thrilling playoff series last season that Denver captured in seven games.
