Utah Jazz 2017-18 Week 10 Outlook, Predictions

The Cavaliers made six more free throws than the Jazz.

While they defeated the Celtics in the game Gobert was injured on Friday night, it won't get any easier.

It's worth mentioning that Utah's Derrick Favors and the rest of the squad filled in well last time Gobert missed time.

Gobert missed 11 games with a bone bruise in his right knee earlier this season. Jonas Jerebko could also see a boost in playing time. Utah came into the week on a three-game losing streak, but were fortunate enough to have three days off to prepare for what had largely been a hapless Chicago Bulls team in a contest that many believed would snap Utah's losing streak. The problem with that is Gobert is the team's best player, and they are already struggling just to be in the hunt for the eighth spot in the Western Conference.

The Jazz are now at the bottom of the Northwest Division, and although the competition is rather fierce, their rivals are not playing much better, and I wouldn't exclude Utah as the division winners, at least not yet.

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert may miss another month after he was diagnosed with a sprained PCL in his left knee as well as a bone bruise.

Once again, rookie Donovan Mitchell stepped up and led the team in scoring with 26 points at Quicken Loans Arena. Ben Simmons is the clear favorite to receive the prestigious award at -1100, and it is no wonder considering that Simmons is among the top 15 players in the National Basketball Association right now.
