The Utah Jazz travel to Wisconsin to take the court against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Jazz have been playing well. Winning six of their last eight games. The six game win streak got the Jazz above .500 for the first time this season, but have since dropped two in a row. The Bucks are three games above .500 this season, and recently beat the Detroit Pistons, 104-100.
Last season, both teams took the court against each other three times. The Jazz swept the season series, 3-0. Utah won their most recent meeting 121-108 this year in Utah.
The Utah Jazz are a .500 ball club right now. A lot of the Jazz recent wins have to do with the play of rookie, Donovan Mitchell Jr. His play has propelled him into the rookie of the year conversation. Donovan is averaging 17.5 points and started 18 games this year.
Aside from the emergence of Mitchell Jr, Rodney Hood has been the Jazz leading scorer this season. He is averaging 17.7 points per game on the year. Derek Favors is played solid as a third scoring option, averaging over 12 points per game.
The first time the Jazz and Bucks faced each other, was earlier in the season. Utah got the 13 point home win. Donovan Mitchell had 24 points on 9 of 16 shooting. Rodney Hood also did damage for the Jazz, dropping 21 points off the bench.
Defensively, the Utah Jazz are allowing 99 points per game this season. Good enough for fourth in the NBA. The length and athleticism of the Jazz lineup has a lot to do with why the team is so good on defense. Rudy Gobert is averaging 2.3 blocks per game this year.
With Gobert protecting the rim, and Mitchell playing light’s out recently, the Jazz could get ready to start another streak.
The Milwaukee Bucks are 13-10 this year. The Bucks have won four of their last five games, and most recently beat the Pistons by four points at home. The Bucks shot 49 percent from the field, and 36 percent from three point land in the win.
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks in scoring in the first game against the Jazz. He had 27 points and 13 rebounds. Milwaukee shot 53 percent from the floor and 38 percent from three point range. Turnovers were a big factor for the Bucks. They had 17 in the loss at Utah.
On the defensive side, the Bucks are allowing 104 points per game. Good, but not great. Ranking the Bucks 12th in points allowed this year. The addition of Eric Bledsoe in the backcourt, is one of the reasons Milwaukee had improved defensively. Bledsoe is averaging 1.9 steals per game this year.
