The Utah Jazz look to remain hot as they welcome in the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night.
The Philadelphia 76ers have become very familiar with losing streaks.
They’ll enter play on Thursday losers of 3 straight games and despite entering play with the worst record in the NBA, the entire team has a lot of optimism.
The 76ers come in off 102-100 loss to the Kings last time out, as Joel Embiid was the first to say that this team should be winning more games.
Embiid has been dominating the floor as of late, averaging 18.7 points per game while putting up 25 or more in 3 of the last 4 games.
PG Sergio Rodriguez has also been making quite the name for himself.
Rodriguez has shot 15 for 21 from the field over the past 2 games, which includes an 8 of 13 mark from behind the arc.
The 76ers enter play on Thursday just 2-9 SU on the road.
The Jazz have been one of the more surprising teams in the NBA this season.
Utah will enter play 6 games over the .500 mark and put an end to a 3 game losing streak as they took down the Lakers 102-100 last time out.
The Jazz have leaned heavily on their defense this year, which is tops in the NBA.
Utah has allowed just 95.3 points per game, as they are the best at suffocating outside shooters and do not allow anything easy at the rim.
One player to watch here will be C Rudy Gobert. The Utah C has 11 straight double doubles recorded after going for 12 points and 11 rebounds on Tuesday.
The Jazz have won 8 straight in this series.
