Sunday, January 10th the Utah Jazz will face the Detroit Pistons for the first time this season. The Pistons last played Friday defeating the Phoenix Suns 110-105 in overtime. Meanwhile, the Jazz routed the Bucks 131-118 also on Friday.
The Jazz holds the all-time record between the teams with 65 wins in 100 meetings. Last season, the teams played twice with Utah winning both matches and have a current eight-game win streak versus the Pistons.
When Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic are hitting their shots the Jazz becomes much more dangerous which is what happened on Friday as they rolled over the Bucks.
This version of the Jazz is their best and no doubt gave Mike Budenholzer pause over his defensive scheme choices to protect the paint as a priority over the perimeter.
The issue, of course, is there are games when the shots don’t fall and in those scenarios, if the Jazz isn’t driving or committed to defense they struggle to win.
Couple that with the fact Jordan Clarkson tends to be the only consistently reliable reserve player for Utah which makes them vulnerable especially if any of the starters get hurt.
In the win versus the Bucks, Donovan Mitchell led the scoring with 32 points. Mike Conley registered a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds while Rudy Gobert was one point shy of earning his own (9 points, 14 rebounds).
Jordan Clarkson (26), Bojan Bogdanovic (20), and Royce O’Neal (18) were the other double-figure contributors.
Derrick Favors (knee) is probable for Sunday, Joe Ingles (Achilles) is questionable. Jarell Brantley (undisclosed) and Juwan Morgan are out indefinitely.
Although the Pistons have just two wins this season their two wins came against two of this season’s top=rated teams – – the Celtics and Suns.
This past offseason the Pistons didn’t put up much of a fight to keep Christian Wood who had improved substantially last season.
Instead, their focus was on forward, Jerami Grant who had improved his stock during the Western Conference Finals as arguably one of Denver’s big three (Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray).
Grant had previously demonstrated his 2-way ability but by joining the Pistons is getting an opportunity to have a greater role in the offense to better showcase his overall skillset.
In the last two games, Grant took full advantage of his new role setting a new career-high in scoring with 31 points against the Bukcs and replicated that feat versus Phoenix via a double-double that also offered 10 rebounds.
In the latter match, Blake Griffin also notched a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds. Delon Wright (16), Mason Plumlee (12) and Saddiq Bey (10) were the other double-digit scorers.
Rookie Killian Hayes suffered a labral tear in his hip that will keep him out for an indefinite period.
