Utah lost at Phoenix last night, absorbing a 117-113 loss and the Jazz are trying to bounce back, which could happen, considering they are a perfect 5-0 at the Vivint Smart Home Arena this season when unrested. These two met opening day this season with Utah starting its impressive season off on the right foot with a 120-100 victory at the Moda Center in Portland, when the Jazz held a massive 59-40 rebounding edge, and held the Blazers to 40% shooting. Blazer leader Damian Lillard and sidekick CJ McCollum combined to make just 11 of 31 shots in that game (4-of-15 on threes). Lillard is coming off one of his worst games of the season, scoring just 11 pts (2nd-lowest of the season after the nine he had against the Jazz), making only 2-of-14 shots. Utah, however, is 18-6 against the points at home and hasnโ€™t minded playing without rest, so would lay it.
