Utah Jazz Betting
It took extra minutes for the Utah Jazz to be defeated as the reformed New Orleans Pelicans took them down, 138-132. Donovan Mitchell had 46 huge points in this game to go with six rebounds. Bojan Bogdanovic provided the added firepower with 26 points while Rudy Gobert had 17 points, 14 rebounds and 3 blocks before fouling out. Jordan Clarkson came off the bench with 15 points while Joe Ingles chipped in with 12. It was a long night for the Jazz and it quite showed that without Gobert manning the paint, they are very much vulnerable. Against the Kings who do not have a legitimate center as of the moment, they will look to maximize Gobert’s presence in the paint.
