Kawhi Leonard led the team with 28 points, seven assists, three rebounds, and three steals while Paul George tallied great numbers with 23 points, ten rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and four three-pointers.

Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz is still trying to find their rhythm as this team evened up their win-loss card at 2-2 to start the season. They fell to the Phoenix Suns in their most recent matchup by 11 points, 106-95. Donovan Mitchell led the charge with 22 points and six boards but shot a dismal 39% from the field. Rudy Gobert was on his usual double-double numbers but they needed more from Bojan Bogdanovic who only tallied 3 points in 28 minutes of gameplay. To add up to the bad luck, Jordan Clarkson went viral after shoving a referee and getting a technical foul out of it. The team has all positions filled up but it is just a matter of getting everyone on the right page.
