The Utah Jazz just can't possibly lose tonight, against the Philadelphia 76ers. Well, they could. It's possible if we're being honest. But let's be real, the Jazz have 6x more wins and are at home, and they absolute should not lose tonight. Yes, the team will be without Derrick Favors, Rudy Gobert, Alec Burks, and Dante Exum. So it's going to be tough. But I still like how Gordon Hayward gets off at home, and Rodney Hood is coming along. Philly isn't a great team. Also, we have Matt Harpring, I think. (N.B. He also played for Philly)

Philly will be playing without Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor. So, yeah, be excited for Nerlens Noel vs. Trey Lyes, basketball fans! The good news is that Richaun Holmes will play. He's fun.

Meh. Gordo better drop 30 on these guys. And frankly, we're going to need every single point.

Go Jazz Go!
