The Jazz fell 97-95 to the Thunder on Monday night, failing to cover the point spread as a 5-point favorite. Alec Burks scored 13 points for the second straight game, shooting 4-of-7 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line with two rebounds and two assists in a season-high 25 minutes. Gordon Hayward also added 17 points in the loss, which was Utah's first in its last seven games.

Even though the Nuggets fell 111-108 at Minnesota on Sunday, that was just the team's second loss in its last six games. Emmanuel Mudiay is doubtful to play tonight after exciting Saturday's game and then was held out of Sunday's contest as well. That said, Gary Harris (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (knee) are both probable to play tonight.
