Game Thread - Utah Jazz @ Toronto Raptors

New, comments

I'm willing to bet that most Jazz fans miss this game today. Had I not been running SLC Dunk, I would have got home this afternoon and not even have known that they played already. I think it happened to me though last year in a game against New Jersey that started early.

Anyway, it's a game on the road which means you can never tell what team is going to show up. The good news is that the Jazz haven't lost to them since Deron's been here. Utah has won 7 straight against the Raptors. You have to go back to a little over four years ago for their last loss.

As you know, the Jazz have a brutal remaining schedule that's even worse on the road. So they're going to need to pick up wins against teams like Toronto to give themselves a shot at moving up. We can't afford losses against lesser teams.

The Suns play the Spurs later today so we'll benefit either way with that one.

The Rockets host the Grizzlies.

And Denver heads to Sacramento.

We're not likely to get any help on those last two, so that places an even bigger importance on this game today.
