The Jazz’s last game didn’t go exactly how we, as fans, imagined it would. Excitement was high, we were finally going to see Mike Conley with Donovan Mitchell in the backcourt. Unfortunately, without Rudy Gobert and Joe Ingles the Milwaukee Bucks were just too much.
Tonight provides a perfect opportunity for the Jazz to regroup. The Jazz will face Zion Williamson and former beloved Jazz player, Derrick Favors tonight in New Orleans. The Pelicans are undefeated in the Preseason. They beat the Bulls on Wednesday with a strong game from Zion. He finished with 29 points, while shooting 93% from the floor! Most of his shots came from in the paint. Derrick Favors played 21 minutes and scored 9 points. While the Jazz have gotten smaller this season after bucking the trend the last few years with Gobert and Favors, the Pelicans large front court could prove hard for the now smaller Jazz.

Favors on his favorite on-court memory in Utah: "Winning Game 6 against OKC. That was when the team just came together, we fought hard. It was a crazy environment, and we stuck together. We were picked to lose that series."— Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) October 11, 2019

Game Thread Ground Rules
Welcome to the SLC Dunk Game Thread.
Dunkers know how this thing works, but for you lurkers ready to make the jump to Dunker, we have a few guidelines. Remember to follow our community guidelines (no swearing, trolling, excessive use of Jerry Sloan’s name in vain, no personal attacks, no debates about Utah liquor laws, etc.). Remember to have fun. Anyone who dare blasphemes that Tim Duncan was a Power Forward (this means you, Pounding the Rock), Ben Simmons can hit threes, Gordon Hayward should not be booed, Exum Island isn’t a 5-Star resort, Donovan Mitchell is Monta Ellis 2.0, men should never cry, or John Stockton is not the best point guard of all-time will receive an automatic ban. Just kidding. But seriously.
