Friday January 26, The Utah Jazz travel to the Air Canada Centre to play the Toronto Raptors. Utah comes to Canada fresh off a win versus the Pistons. Meanwhile the Raptors added to their win column beating the Hawks, a team they’ve owned this season.
Last season, the Raptors swept the season series and this season already beat the Jazz in Utah. Moreover, the Raptors are 7-1 in the squad’s last eight games. The Jazz hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors 26 of their 42 matches.
The singularly talented Donovan Mitchell will headline the Rising Stars American Team at the All-Star Game. Donovan is giving Ben Simmons a run for his money as Rookie of the Year.
In any other season Donovan would be a hands down choice to win and before all is said and done those diametrically opposed to players being allowed to red shirt their rookie season and still win is sure to be a topic of focus.
In the win over the Pistons Mitchell (15 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds) along with Rudy Gobert (15 points, 8 rebounds) lead the Jazz’ scoring efforts and three others (Joe Ingles, Derrick Favors, and Joe Johnson) also scored in double digits.
Om the injury front Rodney Hood (leg) missed his third consecutive game and is questionable for Toronto. The spin on Hood is the Jazz may be shopping the shooting guard and are being cautious with this health.
Dante Exum (shoulder) Thabo Sefolosha (MCL – knee) each had what appears to be season ending surgery.
For the third consecutive time this season the Raptors beat the Atlanta Hawks with each occasion being coming at a convenient time. In the first meeting Toronto had just lost two winnable games (Pacers/Knicks) and outscored the Hawks 112-78.
The second meeting also followed back to back losses (Mavericks/Warriors). And this third game came as the Raptors were sliding having gone 3-4 in their last seven games.
All-Star reserve Kyle Lowry came one point shy of the entire starting unit score in double digits, but he was masterful in his choreography of the offense and did so in just 28 minutes.
And, while Jonas Valanciunas won’t join his starting backcourt at the All-Star Game, he’s produced arguably his best ten game stretch of his career.
Shockingly not one of OG Anunoby, Jakob Poeltl, Pascal Siakam or Fred VanVleet made the Rising Stars roster, despite being an integral part of the Raptors success.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Under is 7-3 in Raptors last 10 home games.
- Over is 11-5 in Raptors last 16 vs. Western Conference.
- Jazz are 0-9 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
- Favorite is 15-5 ATS in the last 20 head to head meetings.
