The Utah Jazz face the. Milwaukee Bucks for the first time this season on Monday, January 7. Utah last played Saturday in a win over the Pistons. Milwaukee completed their back to back set succumbing to their main Eastern competition with a loss to the Toronto Raptors
Last season, the teams split their two games. The Jazz holds the all-time record having bested the Bucks in 53 of their 97 matches.
This match will complete Utah’s four game Eastern Conference road trip where the Jazz has accumulated a record of 1-2 so far with a loss in Toronto and wins in Cleveland and Detroit.
In their last match after falling behind 31-13 in the first quarter the Jazz went on to win each of the next three quarters. Four players scored in double-digits with Donovan Mitchell leading the way scoring 26 points.
The Jazz finished week 12 ranking 20th offensively, fifth defensively and ninth in net with a point differential of plus 2.2.
After a slow start to the season, the Jazz has rebounded with the best defense through the last 15 games.
Neither Dante Exum (left ankle sprain) or Thabo Sefolosha who had to depart the Pistons game with a right hamstring injury will play Monday versus the Bucks.
Grayson Allen (sprained right ankle) will be out for an indefinite period of time.
Entering the weekend Milwaukee sat atop the Eastern Conference and boasted the best win percentage in the NBA. The team they’ve battled all season (the Raptors) took the mantle back after defeating Milwaukee and Indiana in their own back to back weekend set.
Milwaukee can reclaim the top rung quickly since they’ve played four fewer games and has one less loss.
The Bucks are one of four teams (Raptors, Celtics, Nuggets) who rank in the top 10 of the three key categories of offense (second), defense (third) and net rating (1st) with a point differential of +9.2.
Milwaukee played their own back to back set beating the Hawks on Friday prior to the loss versus the Raptors. Although the Bucks weren’t pushed Friday by Atlanta they still looked fatigued Saturday.
MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo was incredible posting a line of 43 points, 4 assists, and 18 rebounds. Most surprisingly, Antetokounmpo made 3 of his 5 attempted perimeter shots (he’s made 15 total on the season).
The only Buck expected out in the match versus Utah is DJ Wilson who suffered a hip pointer Saturday.
