through 3 quarters
There is only a quarter left between the Utah Jazz and the victory they were meant to achieve before tonight. Neither team has the game up, but Utah leads 82-77 over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Point guard Mike Conley has led the way so far for the Jazz, with 18 points and six assists as well as seven boards. One thing Utah has against them is the foul issue: Rudy Gobert, Royce O’Neale, and Rudy Gay all made fouls.
New Orleans is counting on the performance of center Jonas Valanciunas, who has 21 points in addition to six rebounds. A double-double would be Valanciunas’ third in a row.
New Orleans wasted 88% of the time when it was down before the fourth quarter of this year, so this one looks pretty much over
Utah @ New Orleans
Current records: Utah 26-10; New Orleans 13-23
What there is to know
The Utah Jazz have enjoyed the comforts of home in their last two games, but now they have to hit the road. They will face the New Orleans Pelicans at 8 p.m. ET Monday at the Smoothie King Center. The Jazz should win again but hope to live up to expectations this time around.
Utah fell to the Golden State Warriors last Saturday, losing 123-116. Center Rudy Gobert put in a good effort for the losing team with a double-double with 20 points and 19 rebounds.
Meanwhile, New Orleans was supposed to have a hard time last Saturday, and that’s exactly how it turned out. 2022 “greeted” them with a 136-113 beating thanks to the Milwaukee Bucks. Shooting goaltender Nickeil Alexander-Walker just couldn’t get the ball rolling, playing for 26 minutes with a 4-for-16 shot.
This next competition looks promising for Utah, which is favored by 10 points. This might not be the best time to face Utah ATS as they’ve let punters down in the last two games in a row.
Utah is now 26-10 while the Pelicans are 13-23. The Jazz are 6-3 after losing this year to New Orleans 9-13.
