The Celtics have lost two in a row as I write now. That losing streak will most likely be over by the time they get to Salt Lake City to play the Jazz.
Boston continues its current five-game road trip with a game in Phoenix on Thursday night, which means this game will be the second of a back-to-back road games.
Neither of the Celtics’ current two losses are much to be ashamed about. Boston lost in the final seconds in Indiana and then in Denver on a night Jamal Murray scored forty-eight points after the C’s opened up a huge lead in the first quarter.
Gordon Hayward scored just eight points in Denver and it’s been a slow process in getting back to speed after missing all of last season with that gruesome ankle injury.
His 10.1 points per game in the first ten games represent his lowest scoring output since he scored just over five points per game as a rookie in 2010-2011.
The former Jazz star won’t score nearly as much as he did at his peak in Utah when he averaged twenty a game for three consecutive seasons but you have to think he’ll be efficient, which he hasn’t been thus far. He’s shooting just over forty percent.
Utah snapped a four-game losing streak and won its first home game of the season on Wednesday night in Salt Lake City with a 117–102 win over Dallas.
Donovan Mitchell returned from an ankle injury to score a team-high twenty-three points, dish out seven assists and corral five rebounds.
Everything seemed to fall back into place for Utah on this night. With their alpha dog back, the Jazz’s role players looked more comfortable. Alec Burks scored eighteen off the bench and Jae Crowder had fourteen.
Rudy Gobert didn’t have to score but he did. He had seventeen points and ten rebounds. He’ll have a heck of a time finding a way to protect the rim while Al Horford attempts to stretch the floor.
It’s been a rough start for the Jazz but its still 5–6, just as it’s been a bit of a slow start for the Celtics, who are 6–4. Both of these teams will be in it at the end in their respective conferences.
