Utah is struggling without Donovan Mitchell
A while ago, Rudy Gobert was unable to take the court due to injury, and the team was struggling on defense. Now Donovan Mitchell is injured. The absence of their lead scorer is giving Quin Snyder's team trouble on offense. Utah has enough reserves from the first half to remain in the Western Conference's top-6, but their recent performance has been disappointing.
The Jazz come into their game against Brooklyn after a 108-104 home win over Denver. Prior to that, however, Utah had suffered 7 losses in 8 games/
Brooklyn is falling apart
After Kevin Durant was injured, the Nets, who already had a history of unstable play, fell apart. Brooklyn is coming into this game against Utah with a six-match losing streak. Steve Nash's team has already fallen to 6th place in the Eastern Conference standings. The balance is 29-22, and the Nets are only 1.5 losses away from falling out of the playoff zone.
Last game saw Brooklyn lose on the road to Sacramento, 101-112. The result of the match against one of the weakest teams in the Western Conference speaks for itself.
- Utah: Rudy Gobert, Joe Ingles, Donovan Mitchell will not play. Jordan Clarkson, Hassan Whiteside are questionable;
- Brooklyn: Kevin Durant, Joe Harris will not play. Lamarcus Aldridge is questionable.
Utah won 6 of the last 7 matches against Brooklyn.
