Tonight the Utah Jazz play their third game in four nights, on this four game road trip. After beating the Memphis Grizzlies, and nearly stealing one against the Boston Celtics this game almost has to be a win. Seriously. Philly has 13 wins, and 8 of them have been at home. Though, they are only 8/21 at home, while the Jazz are 11/20 on the road. Last game they started Isaiah Canaan, Jason Richardson, JaKarr Sampson, Luc Mbah a Moute, and Nerlens Noel. If the Jazz lose this game it's not going to be a fun time.

Philly is 2nd worst in the East right now, and have lost three straight games. They are horrible. Alec Burks is out. RObert Covington is questionable. Joel Embiid is out. And Tony Wroten is out.

Also, it's Friday afternoon. I want to hang out outside and do stuff. So this is the preview.
