SALT LAKE CITYJazz forward Kelly Olynyk buried a deep three-pointer to give his team life late in Utah’s game against the Chicago Bulls.

The Jazz hosted the Bulls at Vivint Arena on Monday, November 28.

With 7:15 left to play, Olynyk stepped into a 27-foot jumper that sailed through the cylinder.

Olynyk’s big bucket cut Chicago’s lead to 98-94.

Midway through the quarter, the Gonzaga product had 17 points on 6-9 shooting, including 4-7 from downtown. He also had three rebounds, three assists, one steal, and a block during his first 26 minutes on the court.

This season, Olynyk is averaging 12.7 points per game on 55.4 percent shooting, including 47.1 percent from deep. Olynyk also averages 4.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.6 blocks, and 1.3 steals in 28.0 minutes per game.

Utah’s game against Chicago is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA League Pass, and KSL Sports Zone.

Bulls vs. Jazz

The Jazz have struggled after their brilliant 10-3 start to the season. The team has just two wins in its last nine outings and has lost two of its last three in Salt Lake City.

At 12-10, the Jazz have played the most games of any team in the NBA and will have an opportunity to get back to their winning ways with eight of their next nine games at Vivint Arena.

Despite returning home, the Jazz schedule offers very few easy wins over the next two weeks.

After welcoming the Bulls on Monday, the Jazz next eight games will be against teams with records of .500 or better.

On top of Markkanen’s injury, both Mike Conley (knee strain) and Rudy Gay (finger sprain) have been ruled out.

The Jazz are Winless over the last four games without Conley in the lineup.

Despite dropping a game on Friday night to the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Bulls bring considerable momentum with them to face the Jazz.

Chicago had won consecutive games over the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks, two teams considered to be among the few elites in the NBA, before narrowly losing to the Thunder in overtime.

The Bulls are also looking to overcome a series of injuries as they prepare to face the Jazz.

Guard Lonzo Ball has yet to appear in a Bulls uniform this season and will not play against the Jazz while defensive dynamo Alex Caruso is listed as questionable with an ankle injury.
