Raptors Look to Hit the Right Note Against the Jazz

New, comments

After Chicago ended the Raptors five game win streak, Toronto looks to get the good times rolling again versus the visiting Utah Jazz.

Team Records: Toronto, 7-2. Utah, 4-6.

Where to Watch: Sportsnet One has you covered at 7:30pm.

After a disappointing game against Chicago, the Raptors welcome the Utah Jazz to the ACC tonight.

The Jazz enter the ACC with a lackluster 2-4 road record but Toronto would be unwise to take the team lightly. Utah features a bevy of young players looking to breakout this year. On any night it could be Gordon "Huge StarCraft Fan" Hayward lighting it up, or the tall Derrick Favors wrecking the rim, or the taller Rudy Gobert mixing things up. Plus they have a Burke AND a Burks. Look out.

The Raptors meanwhile are looking to re-establish their credibility after a disheartening loss to the Bulls. While Utah isn't on Chicago's level, a solid statement win (and a shooting percentage from DeMar DeRozan over 40) would send a strong message.

Now, I just saw the movie Whiplash, and the JAZZ are in town, so let's hope this game hits the right tempo as we get to the comments.
