What to Look For

The Utah Jazz (17-14) starts their three-road trip against the Milwaukee Bucks (20-8) in pursuit of continuing their winning streak.

Utah is coming into Milwaukee after an exciting 132-129 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night. Milwaukee is ranked in the bottom half of the league in field goal percentage with 45.6% and free throw percentage with 73.7%. With Utah not much better in those categories, this may be the focal point for Utah.

Keys of the Game

Utah will need to utilize Milwaukee’s injuries. Without both of their stars, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, Utah will need to exercise the potential mismatch in the paint. Antetokounmpo being Milwaukee’s number one scorer, need to look for a new outlet such as Brook Lopez.

Injury Report

Milwaukee- Giannis Antetokounmpo: Out (knee), Khris Middleton: Out (knee), Joe Ingles: Out (ACL)

Utah- Johnny Juzang: Out (wrist), Collin Sexton: Out (hamstring)

Where to Watch?

Tip-off will be at 6:00 p.m. MT on AT&T SportsNet.
