It's time for the Utah Jazz to play again, hosting the Detroit Pistons this time. Detroit won the first game of the season series, and it's now up to Utah to even the score. It should be a good game because, well, the Jazz may just actually be that much closer to being healthy again. I'm weary of all the injuries.
