What to Look For
With Utah needing a change in the wins department, expect to see new lineups from Will Hardy. Chicago will utilize their size and ability to drive to the hoop with players like Zach LaVine. Utah will also look to utilize Collin Sexton who has been a focal point for this team since Mike Conley’s injury. Though Utah is a two-point favorite, they manage to still allow more points per game than Chicago with 115.6 PPG.
Key for the Game
Chicago has a top-five rebounder in Nikola Vucevic and a top-15 scorer in DeMar DeRozan. Utah will need to utilize the mid-range jumper of DeRozan and bring more size to compete with Vucevic. Expect to see some experimental lineups with Walker Kessler and Udoka Azubuike to help get some boards.
