What to watch for

How will the shorthanded Jazz fare?

Who will provide scoring for the Jazz with Lauri Markkanen and Jordan Clarkson out? John Collins, Keyonte George, and many others will need to step up in their place. The potential return of Walker Kessler may provide some much-needed defense for Utah. George and Kessler haven’t had much chance to play together yet, so this can be a good test of their chemistry.
