Tonight the Utah Jazz wrap things up with their six game home stand (loss, win, win, win, win) by hosting the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks and Jazz have quite a history together. A few players played for both franchises, like Blue Edwards, Larry Krystkowiak, and the man in the picture above -- Jay Humphries. Can you name any others off the top of your head? Speaking of heads, the Jazz will need to keep theirs in this game. Milwaukee doesn't have as strong a record this season, but are still more than capable of winning a game on the road. They are long, young, athletic, and 'kind of' healthy. One thing the Bucks and Jazz both share is that they are both streaking, just in different directions. Utah will be going for their fifth win in a row tonight, while Milwaukee wants to avoid their fifth loss in a row.

Another similarity is that they are both also-rans when it comes to popularity.
