The Raptors are looking to close out their current road trip with a victory after losing at Denver. They really did not look good against the Nuggets.
Utah loves to welcome teams, they have yet to lose at home where they are most able to dictate the flow and tempo of the game.
It was ugly for Toronto in Denver. They had a couple of key players return from injury but they were never in the game losing by 18.
The contest was another struggle for PG Kyle Lowry. After back to back double-doubles including one triple double he was a non factor. Even though he is a vet I wonder if they are going to have to have a quicker hook with him because they do have depth at the position.
Still I don’t want to read too much into the Denver result given the location and situation. The entire starting 5 needs a mulligan for that effort and even the bench did not play much defense.
Toronto permitted Denver to make half of their three and any game where that happens is going to be a challenge. They are still trying to figure out the best combinations I think.
They got Jonas Valanciunas back from injury and he was 4-4 from the floor. They are going to need him to be more active in this matchup against one of the few elite defenders in the game in Rudy Gobert.
Utah has won three in a row, all at home. As long as they keep defending their house, literally, they will be a factor in the West. This is a great situation too as they get Toronto off a loss and just looking to get on the plane and get home. That is the way everyone will write it up.
The Jazz just beat the Blazers in OT. A couple of things stand out from that one. The first is that Rodney Hood was an o for – no points. The second was that rookie Donovan Mitchell scored 28 points. I like the promise of Mitchell but the jazz need Hood to be consistent. They won but not exactly by their formula.
Gobert patrolled the paint and scored 16 with 10 boards but I think they need more from him. Nobody on the Jazz played more minutes but 5 had more shot attempts. He needs to be a bigger part of the offense for this team to succeed long term.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
The question here is whether this Raptor team has rise above the obvious situational challenges. This is going to be about coaching and discipline as much as anything else. The fact that they lost could present an opportunity.
I think it will in terms of both motivation and evaluations. Look to back Toronto when this number first hits the market as I think it will move in the wrong direction due to overvaluing of the situation.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted
I actually fully expect them to win outright in this one. Utah will suffer their first home loss of the season.
