The Utah Jazz and Atlanta Hawks enter this contest with opposite goals for the season in mind. Utah, who got a taste of the playoffs a year ago, are looking to get back into the Western Conference’s top eight.
They currently sit in 10th place and 4.5 games behind eighth, but they just got their star center in Rudy Gobert back, which can only help their cause.
Atlanta, on the other hand, wants nothing to do with the playoffs, even in a watered-down Eastern Conference.
They currently sit at 13-32, tied with the Orlando Magic for the worst record out East, and are looking to collect ping pong balls and draft positioning once this season reaches its conclusion.
The Utah Jazz enter this contest scoring just 101.8 points per night. That number puts them at 26th in the NBA.
In terms of offensive efficiency, the Jazz still don’t have a lot going for them, but they do become more of a middle-of-the-pack group of players. They’re averaging 104.7 points per game, which puts them at 15th out of 30.
On defense is where Utah really makes a name for itself. So far this season, the team from Salt Lake City is giving up just 102.5 points per contest. That number is good enough for seventh in the NBA.
When looking at defensive efficiency, Utah takes a slight dip down to 14th in the league. So far this season, they’re giving up 105.4 points per 100 possessions.
The Atlanta Hawks enter this contest scoring 103.6 points per contest. That number puts them at 21st in the Association.
In terms of offensive efficiency, Atlanta is posting 103.8 points per 100 possessions. That number is only good enough for a one-spot dip in the rankings, putting them at 22nd in the NBA.
On defense, things haven’t looked much better for this rebuilding roster. So far this season, they’re giving up 107.8 points per game, which puts them at 23rd in the league.
When looking at defensive efficiency, Hawks opponents are scoring 107.9 points per 100 possessions.
That number is only good enough for 26th so far throughout the 2017-18 campaign.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
The Hawks enter this contest coming off a loss to the Bulls—and a bad one at that, dropping the game 113-97 at home.
Utah, on the other hand, got itself a nice win at home in its last outing over the Los Angeles Clippers, 125-113.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Jazz ATS
Although the line isn’t set for this game as of this writing, there’s plenty of reason to believe the Jazz are going to get a solid win.
They don’t have the offensive firepower across the entirety of their roster to make it a true blowout, but a near-double-digit win in a low-scoring game seems like the outcome we’re headed toward.
