Nuggets hope to avoid fade route vs. Kings

For three quarters Wednesday night, the Denver Nuggets looked like a team ready to take the next step.

They controlled the Utah Jazz, leading by as many as 15 points and moving the ball. Then it all came apart. From late in the third quarter to late in the fourth, the Jazz outscored Denver 33-7 to turn a 10-point deficit into a 16-point lead. The Nuggets lost by 10 but the bigger question is whether they lost their confidence.

Denver (0-1) gets to show how it can respond when it hosts the Sacramento Kings in its home opener Saturday night. Paul Millsap, the Nuggets' big free-agent signing of the summer, will play his first meaningful game at Pepsi Center since joining the team. He had a solid debut with 19 points and six rebounds but couldn't get the Nuggets over the top in a 106-96 loss to Utah.
