Boston Celtics vs Utah Jazz
The Jazz will welcome the Celtics to Vivint Smart Home Arena as they are coming off a win against the Mavericks while the Celtics were able to take down the Suns on the road. Game tips off at 9:30 PM ET.
Boston Celtics's Latest Performance :
The Celtics were able to end their two-game losing streak against the Suns. The Celtics will travel to Salt Lake as Gordon Hayward will get ready to play his old team for the first time since he went down. His teammates will realize how important is this game so they will be playing at their best against the Jazz. Hayward should have a great game against his former club. Kyrie will continue his impressive scoring as he is averaging 22 points in the last five games. The Celtics got all the pieces to contend for a championship this season their main focus of the regular season is to keep everyone healthy. Rumors coming from the Celtics camp is that Roizer wants to be traded because he is unhappy with his playing time and deserves a bigger role. If he does get moved in the next few days this means we will get to see Smart running the point something we haven’t seen in a long time.
Utah Jazz's Latest Performance :
The Jazz snapped their three-game losing streak against the Mavericks. Leading the way for the Jazz was Donovan Mitchell he made his return from his ankle injury. He finished with 23 points, five rebounds, and seven assists and had one memorable dunk. He wasn’t the only player doing the scoring in this game as Alec Burks was Utah’s second-leading scorer with 18 points, including 4-of-5 shooting from behind the arc as he took advantage of a Dallas defense that was willing to let him shoot. Rudy Gobert was back to his impactful best as a defender, finishing with 17 points, 10 rebounds and a season-high four blocks, he altered most of Dallas shots making them shoot 45 percent from the floor. Playing against the Celtics would mean a return for Hayward since he went down to an injury. It will be a great duel between Kyrie and Mitchell in this game as well. Mitchell production hasn’t dropped since his rookie campaign the Jazz found the right player to lead the franchise.

Against The Spread Selection: Boston Celtics
My reason for the pick :
The Boston Celtics should be able to edge out the Jazz on the road in this game. The Celtics team basketball will play a big part in this game. Hayward will be glad to return to Utah as he will light up the scoreboard to remind the Jazz team about the good times that they had together. The Celtics got too many weapons on their team as the Jazz will have to rely on Mitchell to their go-to player and he is returning from his ankle injury so it will make the task even harder.
