Can Utah right the wrongs from the last time they played?

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

After a crushing finish on Monday, the Utah Jazz get a chance for quick revenge against the New Orleans Pelicans.

For most of the game against the Pelicans the Jazz played well but couldn’t get stops when they needed them the most, including the last play of the game where victory was literally snatched from their fingers and the Pelicans stole the ball with seconds left and made a game-winning bucket to finish off the Jazz.

What to watch for

Will Jrue Holiday rip the heart from Jazz fan’s chest again?

Against the Jazz on Monday night Holiday was a monster scoring 30 points on 52% shooting while also dishing out 4 assists. He also played all-world defense on Donovan Mitchell and the other Jazz wings.

Holiday’s ability to impact the game on both sides of the ball is impressive and the major reason New Orleans is still playing good basketball.

Considering the circus that has surrounded Anthony Davis this year stemming from his trade request, Jrue Holiday has been a consummate pro and proven his value time after time. Can the Jazz overcome one of the most underrated players in the league?

It’s a tall task for Utah who can’t afford to give up another game against an opponent they are favored against.

This is the favorable schedule people have been talking about, the Jazz need to take advantage.
