Utah Jazz Vs Milwaukee Bucks Game Preview: Start time, channel, how to watch

Jazz travel to the Fiserv to meet Giannis and the Bucks

NBA: Utah Jazz at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Off the back of their sixth road win of the year, a victory against an Embiid-less 76ers, the Utah Jazz travel to Milwaukee to meet the Bucks at the Fiserv Forum.

The Jazz look to have a clean bill of health moving into the game whilst the Bucks will be without Damien Lillard (personal reasons), Cam Payne (concussion protocol) and the long term-injury to Jae Crowder (left adductor surgery). After fantastic performances last time out, Lauri Markkanen, Collin Sexton and John Collins will hope to continue this into Milwaukee and finish this three-game road trip in style.

Ridding the demons of the Boston Celtic’s loss on Friday, the Jazz are aiming for consistency in a stop-start season that sees them sat at 17-20. The Bucks are in a slump of their own, winning just one of the last four games - falling to the Houston Rockets.

With Lillard’s absence, the Jazz will likely see significant minutes for former Jazz player Malik Beasley. A key part of Team 49, Malik was traded as part of the deal that saw Conley and Vanderbilt leave with the 2027 Lakers pick coming the other way. Hopefully we won’t see his patented shimmy.

Playing against one of the best teams in the NBA will be a tough ask for Will Hardy’s Utah Jazz, however so far in his tenure, Hardy’s teams perform best when underdogs!
