What you need to know about the Jazz

Utah has now dropped six of its last seven games after blowing a 13-point lead in the second half of a loss to Houston on Wednesday. The Jazz were up 22 points at Detroit on Jan. 10, but they blew that lead as well. Star big man Rudy Gobert has missed some time due to COVID-19 protocol, but he will be on the court for this game. 

Mitchell, who leads the team with 25.5 points per game, remains sidelined due to a concussion. The Jazz will need more from small forward Bojan Bogdanovic, who is scoring 18.0 points per game. Utah has won its last five home games against Detroit. 

What you need to know about the Pistons

Detroit will be looking to build on its last game against Utah, as it scored 78 points in the second half to erase a 22-point deficit and pick up a 126-116 win on Jan. 10. Guard Cade Cunningham and Saddiq Bey each scored 29 points in that win. The Pistons are coming off a 133-131 win over Sacramento, as guard Cory Joseph hit a mid-range jumper with 25.9 seconds remaining. 

Power forward Jerami Grant leads Detroit with 20.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. Cunningham and Bey are both averaging 15 points per contest. The Pistons have struggled away from home, winning just two of their last 16 road games.
