The Utah Jazz start off their four game road trip tonight against the Boston Celtics. Boston is playoff bound, and Utah is trying to climb their way back up there still. It's a historically important franchise sitting at #3 in the East up against a team still searching for a modern identity that's under .500 right now. Utah and Boston. Two very different clubs.
