SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz begin a five-game road trip against the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks.

Utah will play five games in seven nights from Monday, November 25 until Monday, December 2.

During that stretch, the Jazz will play four teams from the Eastern Conference including Milwaukee, Indiana, Toronto, and Philadelphia. The Memphis Grizzlies the lone Western Conference foe on the road trip.

The Jazz are currently 11-5 on the season and tied for the third-best record in the Western Conference. They are currently on a three-game winning streak and have won 7 out of their last ten games. However, they are also 3-4 on the road in 2019.

Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has been a tear to start the 2019-20 season. He’s fresh off a game where he scored 37 points helped Utah to its third consecutive victory.

Mitchell has led the Jazz in scoring in nine of their 16 games this season. He is averaging 25.9 points per game which ranks ninth in the NBA.

If the Jazz hope to come out of the upcoming trip winning three or more game, Mitchell will have to continue his spectacular play.

11/25 @ Milwaukee Bucks

Rudy Gobert missed the Jazz’s last game against the New Orleans Pelicans due to a left ankle sprain that he suffered against the Golden State Warriors.

The Jazz center is listed as questionable on Utah’s injury report for the team’s upcoming game against the Bucks.

Utah defeated Milwaukee 103-100 in their first meeting this season. The game was played in Salt Lake City on November 8. Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic hit a game-winning buzzer-beating three-pointer as time expired to lift Utah to the victory.

MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 30 points on 10-22 shooting. The Jazz held the Bucks’ star to 2 points in the first half before he erupted after the break.
