SALT LAKE CITY –Β The Utah Jazz will face the 76ers in a homecoming game for the talented Philadephia roster.

The 76ers return home after playing their last four games on the road, while the Jazz travel to Philly after playing in Minnesota last night.

The Jazz have won five games in a row during their latest hot stretch, while the 76ers are winners of three straight.

Jazz Face Tough Turnaround

The Jazz face the 76ers in a tough turnaround after playing in Minnesota on Wednesday night.

After a slow first that saw the Jazz leading the Timberwolves 60-5 at the break, the Jazz outscored Minnesota 76-45 over the final two quarters to run away with an easy 136-104 win.

Donovan Mitchell scored 36 points, tying a career-best four-game streak scoring at least 30 points.

Meanwhile, the Jazz became the first team in NBA history to hit at least 30 threes in three consecutive games, and have hit a staggering 111 deep balls during their five-game win streak.

76ers Return Home, Finally

Though it’ll be a quick turnaround for the 76ers who played Wednesday night in Charlotte, the Philadelphia roster will be happy to finally be back home.

Including last night’s 110-106 win over the Hornets, the 76ers have played 10 of their last 12 games on the road, resulting in a 6-6 record during their tough road stretch.

Philadelphia has won four of their last five games, but the contests have been decided by a combined 15 points total, with no margin greater than five.

The Sixers have struggled offensively during the stretch recording the NBA’s 23rd best offensive rating over the last five games, but have the league’s fifth-best offense during the same period.

Joel Embiid and Seth Curry have carried Philadelphia over the last five games averaging 26.4 points, and 13.2 rebounds per game.

Curry has averaged 17.6 points per game and both players are shooting better than 40 percent from three.


The Jazz and 76ers will tip-off at 5 pm MT and can be heard on 97.5 and 1280 The Zone Sports Network. The game will be televised on AT&T SportsNet and FuboTV.
