Bet here and win
We must say that both teams should be fully prepared, since it was precisely for the game against Jazz at Toronto that defender Fred Vanvleet is scheduled to play. Utah has no serious injured players at all. Jazz already played in Canada, and on December 1, the team was put to shame there (110:130).
Nick Nurse’s wards, unlike their opponents, demonstrate a more pragmatic game. Only two defeats in the last 10 away matches clearly demonstrate this, moreover, at home they perform in a similar way and have about the same number of defeats. For the Canadian team it doesn’t really matter where to play, at home or away, which means the hosts of this meeting will definitely have difficulties.
All in all, Toronto are in terrible condition. In the last five matches, only three victories were won. The only plus for Toronto now is that the team with enviable constancy is gaining 100+ points. On the other hand, the loss of several leaders can cause irreparable harm to this team.
It is very important how Mike Conley will play in the upcoming match. This defender, who was taken on the eve of this championship so that he was the leader of the team, seems to have realized the importance of the situation. If we take the five-match winning segment, then Conley has 17.0 points per game and 5.4 assists. At the same time, he throws from afar with a delightful percentage of 43.8. Thus, we can say that Vanvleet should have a very serious opponent, who should ruin the game in attack.
Meanwhile, Utah the leader in terms of performance is Donovan Mitchell, who in terms of this segment a little bit went down, having only 21.6 points on average. In addition, Mitchell has only (+1,4) in utility.
In this context, it is very interesting to watch for Pascal Siakam, who, on the next day’s matches, has an average of 20.3 points, attacking mainly from under the ring. Here he will have to be constantly met by Rudy Gobert, who may well cope with a player from Cameroon.
