The Utah Jazz (30-19) and the Milwaukee Bucks (21-26) will be in action tonight at Vivint Smart Home Arena as they will tip-off at 7:00 PM. The Jazz will look to bounce back tonight with a win as they have lost 3 out of their previous 4 games. The Jazz will once again be without Derrick Favors for tonight’s game as he out officially due to “rest.” He practiced on a limited basis the last couple of days. He continues to try and get back to 100% after missing part of the season due to a bone contusion.
The Jazz will once again be challenged defensively against the Bucks. That has been a point of emphasis during practice these last 3 days. Utah Jazz Head Coach Quin Snyder talked about that as well as other thing s with the media this morning:
Giannis Antetokounmpo as well as Jabari Parker will present difficult challenges on defense for the Jazz. The Jazz will need to play well both defensively and offensively tonight. The media also caught up with Rodney Hood after shoot around. Here is the audio:
Gordon Hayward, Rudy Gobert, Rodney Hood, and George Hill will need to play well tonight. They will also have to show some more emotion on defense with Derrick Favors being out. The Jazz need to take advantage of their couple days of rest and get out to a quick start against the Bucks.
