What to Know

The Utah Jazz will head out on the road to face off against the Washington Wizards at 7:00 p.m. ET on Thursday at Capital One Arena. Both teams have had a bumpy ride up to this point with three consecutive losses for the Jazz and five for the Wizards.

It’s hard to win when you don’t work as a unit and rack up 14 fewer assists than your opponent, a fact the Jazz found out the hard way on Tuesday. They suffered a bruising 153-124 defeat at the hands of New Orleans. The Jazz were down 115-91 at the end of the third quarter, and things only got worse from there.

The Jazz’s loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of Collin Sexton, who scored 22 points along with seven assists, and Simone Fontecchio who scored 18 points.

Meanwhile, Washington came up short against Minnesota on Wednesday and fell 118-107.

Despite their defeat, the Wizards saw several players rise to the challenge and make noteworthy plays. Deni Avdija, who scored 24 points along with six assists and six rebounds, was perhaps the best of all. As a matter of fact, that’s the most points Avdija has scored all season.

Utah now has a losing record at 22-23. As for Washington, they bumped their record down to 7-36 with that loss, which was their seventh straight at home.

Thursday’s match is shaping up to be a scrappy contest: The Jazz have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 46.5 rebounds per game (they’re ranked second in rebounds per game overall). It’s a different story for the Wizards, though, as they’ve been averaging only 40.2 rebounds per game. Given the Jazz’s sizeable advantage in that area, the Wizards will need to find a way to close that gap.

Going forward, the Jazz are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by eight points. For those looking to play the spread, keep Utah in mind: they have a solid 27-18 record against the spread this season.
