The Cleveland Cavaliers do not have much left to play for this season, but they will look to take on the current leader in the Western Conference, as they travel to Salt Lake City for this game with the high-flying Utah Jazz.
The Cavaliers suffered a pretty unfortunate and heart breaking loss last time out, as they fell to the Sacramento Kings by a score of 100 to 98 with De’Aaron Fox doing much of the heavy lifting on the opposing side with Fox putting up an impressive 36 points.
Just taking the loss was not the hard part for the Cavaliers, but the way it happened, as Harrison Barnes caught the ball from the baseline inbound and ended up draining a last second 3 pointer, so it will be interesting to see how the Cavaliers are able to bounce back off of that game.
Collin Sexton does remain the main source of offensive production here putting up 24 points per game and it does seem, especially watching him this year, that he is getting better with experience and I would expect him to be the Cavs starting point guard for many years to come.
The Utah Jazz really are the real deal this year, as they come into this game riding a 5 game winning streak and if they even bring their B-game into this matchup they will take care of the Cavaliers without much issue.
Just reading their stats you can see why they are where they are with 116.8 points per game on average which is good for 3rd in the league and only 108 points allowed on the other side of the court which is good for 5th overall in the league.
There is not just one guy to look out for with the Jazz either, as they have so many guys who can help them win, although Donovan Mitchell does stand out offensively putting up nearly 26 points per game.
The only important injury to look out for the Utah Jazz in this match-up is Mike Conley who is currently being listed as Day-To-Day with a right hamstring injury, but the Jazz will still be a prohibitive favorite even if Conley is unable to go despite Conley having an excellent season.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Even with the number where it is I still want to go with the Jazz here, as I have concerns about how the Cavs will score and defend on the interior with Rudy Gobert being one of the best defenders in the league and the Cavs not really having much of an answer on the inside.
That means Cleveland is likely going to need to rely on a solid shooting performance which I also doubt they can do, as the wing defense is also excellent for Utah and at the end of the day the Jazz have an explosive offense of their own which Cleveland will not be able to contain.
