*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Thursday, March 30th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Friday, March 31st.
The Jazz remain in the hunt for a play-in seed sitting in 12th as of this posting. They’re 1.5 games back of the 10th and final play-in seed with six games remaining.
Road games are problematic for Utah who are 14-24 away from home and 5-5 through the last 10 games.
On the positive side, Utah averages the sixth most points per game with 117.2 while they shoot 47.3% from the field and 35.7% from the perimeter ranking 18th and 19th respectively.
Equally important, Jazz opponents score 117.8 points which ranks 24th while shooting 47.5% from the field and 36.4% from deep ranking 17th and 18th.
To summarize the injury report:
- Kelly Olynyk, C (questionable—illness)
- Lauri Markkanen, SF (downgraded to OUT —hand)
- Collin Sexton, PG (OUT indefinitely—hamstring)
- Rudy Gay SG (downgraded to OUT —back)
- Jordan Clarkson PG (downgraded to OUT —finger)
Delivering the Bucks’ most lopsided loss of the season will serve to add confidence to the Celtics who also gain the season tiebreaker between the clubs.
In spite of the thumping, Boston can’t read too much into the win because Milwaukee was playing the second game of a back-to-back set.
What Boston should be focusing on is how they allowed a Wizards team without Bradley Beal or Kyle Kuzma in the lineup to beat them by 19 points the game prior so instead of narrowing the gap to 1.5 games that loss equates to a 2.0 game lead for Milwaukee.
On the positive side, Boston claims the second-best point production averaging 118.3 points per game. In terms of efficiency, they shoot 47.6% from the field and 37.8% from the perimeter ranking 14th and sixth respectively.
Presently, opponents average 111.8 points per game which rank sixth. Celtics opponents are limited to 46.4% from the field and 34.9% from the perimeter with both efficiency categories ranking fifth overall.
To summarize the injury report…
- Danilo Gallinari, SF (OUT indefinitely — ACL)
- Payton Pritchard, PG (OUT— heel)

Free Utah Jazz vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
The copious injuries for the Jazz could just be bad timing – – OR — it could mean the front office is taking an overly cautious approach in order to drop into the lottery.
The latter might seem far-fetched but Danny Ainge didn’t tear the roster apart for the privilege of participating in a one-game play-in match. In contrast, the Celtics will attempt to win out and hope the Bucks lose two of their final five matches.
Although the Jazz are 10 games below .500 on the road they’re identity is to never give up and they have the rest advantage — so take the points.
