The Utah Jazz (19-13) will be hosting the Philadelphia 76ers (7-23) tonight, and they'll be without 'The Process' and many others of their young stable of potential studs. The Jazz, on the other hand, are finally getting healthy. Only two guys will be missing tonight from their regular rotation.

Team Breakdown:

Jazz are good on offense and defense and play slowly. Philly is the worst offensive team in the league. But hey, they will crash the boards. Sometimes that's all it takes.
