Game #30 -- Utah Jazz (7-22) @ Charlotte Bobcats (13-14) December 21, 2013, 5:30 p.m. -Time Warners Arena, Charlotte North Carolina TV: ROOT Sports, RADIO: 1280 AM / 97.5 FM

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Al Jefferson will face his former team, the Utah Jazz for the first time since signing with the Charlotte Bobcats. Al Jefferson played three seasons with the Utah Jazz in a time of transition for a normally stable team. Jefferson carried the team for the three years he was with the Jazz including leading them to the playoffs his second year with the team. While Jefferson was with the Jazz he took the young bigs, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter, under his wing. Knowing that he would eventually be leaving the team because of Favors and Kanter he was still a good mentor and only spoke highly of them and the team.

While the Charlotte Bobcats and the Utah Jazz are heading in different directions, tonight should be an exciting game. Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors vs. Al Jefferson and Trey Burke vs Kemba Walker should not disappoint.
