Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Utah Jazz vs Philadelphia 76ers
The 76ers will welcome the Jazz to Wells Fargo Center as they are coming off a loss against the Magic while the Jazz will look to bounce back after losing to the Mavs by 50 points. Game tips off at 7:00 PM ET.
Utah Jazz's Latest Performance :
The Jazz will look to bounce back in a huge way after losing their last game by 50 points against the Mavs. They were only able to score 9 points in the 4th quarter. There are scores and scores of horrifying statistics about the Jazz’s lack of scoring from this game, but this one stood out to me the most: the Jazz scored only three points on the possessions after 20 Dallas turnovers. The Jazz failed to move the ball in this game and that end up to be costly for them. Mitchell was only able to score 10 points he was only on the floor for 25 mins as he will look for a better performance against the Sixers. Gobert chipped in with 10 points as well it goes to show how bad the Jazz was struggling. Jae Crowder made just 2-of-12 shots it is now two games in a row that he has struggled shooting the ball. The Jazz will have to forget this game and head back to the drawing board and focus on the next game because there is nothing they can do now but learn from their mistakes and assure that they won’t have another 50 point blowout.
Philadelphia 76ers 's Latest Performance :
The Sixers will be searching for their first win with Butler on the team after failing to do so in their first game together against the Magic. The Sixers led by as many as 16 points early in the fourth quarter, but the Magic quickly turned the tables by ripping off 21 points in a row. Jimmy Butler in his debut scored 14 points while shooting 6-for-12 from the floor. Joel Embiid delivered his latest dynamic performance Wednesday, posting the first triple-double of his career. He tallied 19 points (6-20), 13 boards, and 10 assists. JJ Redick scored a team-best 22 points, while Wilson Chandler, in a starting role, enjoyed a productive evening, adding 14 points (6-10) and four rebounds. It is just a matter of time that everyone on the Sixers will be on the same page. Playing against the Jazz who are just coming off a 50 point loss against the Mavs will give the Sixers the confidence that they need to pick up the win at home.
