What you need to know about the Jazz
Last Tuesday, the Jazz lost to the New York Knicks 118-103 for their second consecutive loss. Collin Sexton scored 22 points and doled out seven assists in the loss, while John Collins posted a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.
However, it was an off-shooting night for Lauri Markkanen, who went 5-for-14 from the floor and finished with 14 points and five rebounds. Markkanen is averaging 23.5 points and 8.7 rebounds this season, and Utah will need a much bigger performance from the Fin on Thursday. See which team to pick here.
What you need to know about the 76ers
Meanwhile, the 76ers’ recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Tuesday after their fourth straight defeat. They fell 119-107 to the Golden State Warriors. The 76ers’ loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of Tobias Harris, who dropped a double-double on 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Furkan Korkmaz who scored 19 points.
Reigning NBA MVP Joel Embiid suffered a knee injury in the contest and finished with 14 points and seven rebounds over 30 minutes. Embiid has already been ruled out for Thursday’s contest, and the 76ers will have a huge hole to fill, as Embiid is averaging 35.3 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists this season. Philadelphia also has a host of other injuries to deal with as Tyrese Maxey (ankle) and Nicolas Batum (hamstring) are questionable, while De’Anthony Melton (back) is out. See which team to pick here.
