I was shocked to see the Jazz a road favorite, even if it was against Atlanta a couple of days ago. The Hawks ended up winning the game easily, 104–90.
No doubt the return of Rudy Gobert had something to do with the the oddsmakers’ favorable view of the Jazz. Gobert started, played 28 minutes and scored six points while grabbing ten rebounds.
The problem was that everybody else in the starting lineup struggled to play alongside the high-profile center.
Donovan Mitchell found less space to attack and Ricky Rubio the same thing. As a result, Joe Ingles didn’t get as may open looks as he’s used to with a smaller lineup on the floor.
Things could return to more of a small-ball look with the trade deadline two weeks away.
Gobert probably won’t go but Derrick Favors might. I think it makes sense the Jazz deal him but it’s hard to find information about who wants him and how much they would be willing to give up.
He isn’t a starting player for a championship team but he’s a darn good reserve. Utah would be prudent to get something in return for sending him to a playoff team.
FiveThirtyEight’s prediction for the Pistons is still fairly good. Nate Silver and his co-workers have Detroit with 40 wins, which would be good enough for the eight-seed.
As thing stand now, that looks optimistic. But Reggie Jackson won’t be out forever; he’s working his way back week by week. The Pistons could sure use another rotation player, not a big acquisition but a guy who can come in and stabilize that second unit with some playmaking and leadership.
The only rumor I’ve read about for Detroit involves Kemba Walker. I’m not sure what Detroit gives up to land Walker, or why it wants to make a splash for a guy who won’t do anything except make them a little more difficult for one of the big fish in the Eastern Conference’s first round of the playoffs. Detroit is still very much in a rebuilding situation. If it cashes in its assets too soon, it will prove to be a useless exercise.

This was a process of elimination. I don’t like either of these teams at the moment and cannot possibly imagine backing either, regardless of what kind of number the oddsmakers throw out there.
This is a clear stay-away.
