The Utah Jazz will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers as they start a difficult road trip. For Utah, they’re starting to get players back that have been gone with injury. John Collins is back and coming off the bench playing more backup center. It worked in their last game and, with the Cavaliers missing some of their frontcourt depth, it may work again if the Jazz do it again.

That’s the thing that is becoming the story of this season for the Jazz (outside of all the trade rumors swirling). Will Hardy is slowly evolving this roster of misplaced parts into a competitive team. Yes, there’s night where they’v been blown out against teams that can take advantage of their weaknesses, but Hardy has put together multiple variations to give advantages to the Jazz. On defense their running all sorts of variations like zone, box and 1, and man while offensively it’s a different starting unit almost every nigh. We’ll see what the Jazz do tonight!
