Friday, November 16 finds the Utah Jazz meeting up vs. the Philadelphia 76ers as they enter the second month of the 2018-19 regular season. The Jazz continues to struggle to find a balance and to reclaim their once dominant defense enter the night having lost to the Dallas Mavericks. Meanwhile, the new look 76ers witnessed Jimmy Butler’s debut but failed to capitalize losing to the Orlando Magic.
Last season, the 76ers swept the season series, however the nine previous games the Jazz won. The Jazz holds the all-time record having bested the 76ers 54 of their 97 matches.
The Mavericks laid a serious beat down on the Jazz in their last game. Utah struggled to score amassing a measly 68 points in total while giving up 118.
This might not seem like that big of a deal, however it was the Mavericks who delivered Utah this loss. Only three players on the Jazz managed to score in double digits. Ricky Rubio led the way with 11 while Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell scored 10 points.
This game was a microcosm of the issues the Jazz have endured all season. No longer are they sneaking up on teams and their once superior defense is under severe scrutiny with the new officiating rules.
Raul Neto (right hamstring injury) and is likely to remain out of the lineup until the end of November.
The new big three of Philly took to the court as Jimmy Butler made his debut in the starting rotation. He produced 14 points, 2 assists, and 4 rebounds. It will take time to integrate, but the initial outing pointed to how Butler may have to adapt possibly more than initially expected.
Clearly, the direction of the 76ers seems to be to go through Joel Embiid as he took most of the clutch time shots in the loss. Butler has historically been the primary option, but it seems he’ll be second or third option behind Embiid and Ben Simmons.
Justin Patton (multiple right foot surgeries) who was part of the trade package is expected to miss extended time. Zhaire Smith (left foot Jones fracture/thoracoscopy to fix an allergic reaction from a food product ) no timetable for return.
