Philadelphia 76ers vs. Utah Jazz news
Referencing Land of Basketball’s statistics, these teams have played one another 103 times during the regular season all-time. The Jazz are 56-47 versus the 76ers. Though, in the past three head-to-head meetings, Philadelphia is 2-1 against Utah. On Mar. 3, 2021, the last time these teams faced off, the 76ers won 131-123 at home in overtime. Additionally, Philadelphia is 6-4 versus Utah in the team’s previous 10 head-to-head contests.
Leading into tonight’s interconference matchup, Jazz forward Rudy Gay participated in his first full practice with the team on Monday. There is no timetable for his return, but basketball analysts are predicting that he could make his return by December. In the 2020-21 NBA season, with the Spurs, Gay averaged 11.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game in 63 games played.
Rudy Gay went through his first full practice with the Utah Jazz yesterday. Behind the scenes, though, Gay long ago became a part of the team, thanks in part to the curse-laden, trash talk-filled shooting sessions with Joe Ingles that Quin Snyder arranged. https://t.co/h5coolJvUN

Furthermore, last Saturday, in the 76ers’ 118-113 road loss versus the Pacers, forward Tobias Harris led his team in scoring, putting up 32 points in 35 minutes of action. Guard Tyrese Maxey contributed 24 points, 2.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 43 minutes played as well.

Upon further review of the box-score game statistics, the Sixers out-rebounded the Pacers 46 to 37. However, they were outscored 58 to 42 in the paint.
