Jazz vs. 76ers

The Jazz have a quick turnaround as they fly from Washington to face the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 76ers have had a slow start to the season 1-4, before bringing their record to a more respectable 6-7.

Philadelphia split a two-game series with the Hawks where they struggled mightily to score in Atlanta before earning a victory back at home.

James Harden has missed the last four games for the 76ers with a foot injury and won’t return for several weeks, and the team misses his offense.

Philadelphia has the 15th ranked offense through three weeks of the season and 11th ranked defense.
