Tonight is, clearly, the Jeff Withey revenge game. Okay, maybe that's a very minor story-line tonight as the Utah Jazz host the New Orleans Pelicans. It's going to be a battle where the talented All-Star front court of the Pelicans go to battle inside (and out) against the non-stars from the Jazz. Don't think they didn't have this game circled.

It's also the third game in four nights and second night of a back-to-back set for both teams. It could be sloppy in the middle 3rd quarter as legs get really tired.
