Who's Playing

Utah @ New Orleans

Current Records: Utah 28-12; New Orleans 15-26

What to Know

On Thursday, the New Orleans Pelicans are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 116.93 points per contest. They will take on the Utah Jazz at 8 p.m. ET at Smoothie King Center after a few days off. The Pelicans have some work to do to even out the 4-12 series between these two since November of 2015, but a win here would be a good start.

It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but New Orleans ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Monday with a 117-110 win over the Detroit Pistons. The team ran away with 63 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the victory.

Meanwhile, Utah strolled past the Brooklyn Nets with points to spare on Tuesday, taking the game 118-107. C Rudy Gobert and SF Joe Ingles were among the main playmakers for Utah as the former dropped a double-double on 22 points and 18 boards and the latter shot 6-for-8 from downtown and finished with 27 points. That's four consecutive double-doubles for Gobert.

Their wins bumped New Orleans to 15-26 and Utah to 28-12. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Pelicans and the Jazz clash.
