While Utah continues to fight for a spot in the West, the Raptors continue to miss opportunities at the Cavaliers.
Utah currently sits in 9th place in the West, 0.5 game out of the 8 seed as they continue to bounce back and forth with Houston.
Toronto has fallen back to 2.5 games behind Cleveland for the 1 seed, after beating them Friday to cut the lead down.
Utah is picking the wrong time to go cold.
The Jazz have dropped 3 straight and 6 of 8 overall as they have fallen behind Houston and sit in the 9th seed. The Jazz inconsistent play has come from the point guard position as they simply cannot find a true PG that can handle the ball and be a legit scoring threat.
The road has been a major problem for Utah. The Jazz have gone just 9-19 on the road this season and they’ll have that tested to start things off in March. Utah will play 10 of their first 14 games in March on the road, which will clearly make or break them in the playoff race.
These teams last met on 11/18 and it was Utah who got the better of the matchup, with a 93-89 win.
The Raptors sent a message to the Cavaliers on Friday night with a come from behind win and it looked like this would be a race to the finish.
However, Toronto tried to be sneaky and rest Kyle Lowry on Sunday against Detroit and still manage to steal a win. Well that plan failed mightily as they fell to Detroit 114-101. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers had lost in Washington, which would have been a full game picked up by the Raptors had they won.
The Raptors defense was noticeably different without Lowry in the lineup. They allowed Detroit to shoot 57.7% from the field, as the guards really dominated for the Pistons.
The Raptors also made a roster move after the loss. Toronto waived F Anthony Bennett on Monday and signed F Jason Thompson. Thompson was waived by the Warriors, making him a free agent.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
The Raptors are clearly a much different team without Lowry. The good news out of all this, he did actually get the rest he certainly needed.
They’re still right there, just 2.5 back and with Utah’s struggles on the road, things should be relatively easy for the Raptors.
