When: Monday November 25, 2019, 8:00 PM EST (Tueday. 1:00 AM GMT)
Where- Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee
Utah Jazz will be playing a series of five away games in the next eight days, starting with a trip to Milwaukee on Monday. They will be coming into the game on the back of two home victories against the Warriors and the Pelicans.
In their 128-120 win over the Pelicans, Donovan Mitchell returned 37 points along with seven rebounds and five assists. Bojan Bogdanovic contributed with 28 points, five assists and five rebounds.
For the Bucks, last season’s MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is carrying his form this time around, and will be an important figure in the team throughout the season. He registered a double double in the Bucks last game against Detroit, with 28 points and 10 rebounds.
The Bucks have the 2nd highest scoring offense in the league, while the Jazz have the 2nd best defense in points allowed per game. The Bucks have won seven games in a row now- four of them coming away from home. But Utah will take confidence from the fact that the last NBA game the the Bucks lost was against the Jazz, who have won eight of the last ten games between the sides.
Injury updates & team news-
As per the latest injury reports from Utah Jazz, Ed Davis and Nigel Williams are listed as out of Monday’s game with a left fibula fracture and a right toe sprain respectively, while centre Rudy Gobert is questionable with a left ankle sprain.
The Buck do not have any major injury concerns. Ersan Ilyasova, who did not feature against Pistons, is listed as day-to-day, while Kris Middleton is yet to recover from his quadriceps injury picked up earlier this month.
The Jazz will be looking a repeat of what happened at Utah, but the Bucks seem to have a good chance to extend their winning run to eight games
