SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz posted four first-quarter blocks against the Orlando Magic as they jumped out in front early on.

As expected, Walker Kessler contributed to this number with two blocks.

John Collins added a block as Orlando guard Jalen Suggs drove into the lane for a layup.

Even Talen Horton-Tucker got in on the fun as he rose up in front of Wendell Carter Jr. and stuffed the big man.

Utah held Orlando to 36% from the floor in the first.

The Jazz led by four going into the second, 34-30.

Jazz Look For Back-To-Back Wins As They Face Ingles, Magic

The Utah Jazz will look to win consecutive games for the first time this season when they host Joe Ingles and the Orlando Magic on Thursday night.

The Jazz beat the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday to move to 2-3 on the season.

Orlando comes into Utah having lost back-to-back games in the middle of their four-game road trip.

The Jazz opened their two-game homestand with a blowout 133-109 win over the Grizzlies fueled by 23 points from reserve guard Collin Sexton.

Six different Jazz players knocked down multiple threes as the team shot a season-best 22-43 from downtown.

Sexton, Lauri Markkanen, and Jordan Clarkson each knocked down four threes in the win.

After hosting Orlando, the Jazz embark on a four-game midwestern road trip through Minnesota, Chicago, Indiana, and Memphis.
