What to Know
After a five-game homestand, the Utah Jazz will be on the road. They will square off against the Toronto Raptors at 7:30 p.m. ET Friday at Scotiabank Arena. Utah needs to shore up a defense that is allowing 117.11 points per contest.
The Jazz found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 143-118 punch to the gut against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. Utah was down 117-88 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. A silver lining for them was the play of shooting guard Collin Sexton, who had 22 points and five assists in addition to five boards.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the matchup between Toronto and the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday was still a pretty decisive one as Toronto wrapped it up with a 112-98 win at home. Power forward Pascal Siakam continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, dropping a double-double on 37 points and ten rebounds along with seven dimes.
Utah is expected to lose this next one by 8. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 15-5 against the spread when expected to lose.
The Jazz came out on top in a nail-biter against the Raptors in the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month, sneaking past 131-128. The rematch might be a little tougher for Utah since the squad won’t have home-court advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
