Utah Jazz achieved its ninth win after beating Washington Wizards (127-116) in the NBA, while Denver Nuggets scored a remarkable victory over the Los Angeles Clippers (114-104).

Four players contributed to Utah's victory: Croatian Bojan Bogdanovic (31 points), Jordan Clarkson (23 points), French Rudi Goubert (21 points with 14 follow-ups) and Joe Inglis (20 points) to raise their team balance to 27 victories compared to 12 losses in second place in the region West behind the Los Angeles Lakers. The victory is the fourteenth for Utah in his last 15 games. The Wizards top scorer was Bradley Bell with 25 points. Bradley was absent from his team's last five games due to injury. Utah's victory was not easy because he turned 15 points behind the third quarter to a victory thanks to Clarkson specifically, who scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half.

The Denver Nuggets scored a remarkable victory over the Los Angeles Clippers (114-104) and clinched the third position in the Western Group, while the loser fell to fifth. Although the Clippers Kahohe Lennard scored 30 points, Leo Williams 26 points and Montreux Harel 25 points, they were unable to give the victory to their team, knowing that Paul George missed the team due to injury. It was the turning point in the second quarter that Denver ended with a difference of 15 points. Nuggets relied on team play with a score of seven players between 11 and 20 points, most notably Serbian Nikola Jokic.
