PHI vs UTA Dream11: Utah Jazz round-off their eastern Conference road-trip with a game against one of the giants of the East, Philadelphia 76ers at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia. The Jazz lost the last game, while the Sixers are on a three-game winning run heading into this match.
Philadelphia 76erss: The Sixers rolled over Indiana Pacers 119-116 to extend the winning run to three games. With the win the Sixers improved to 14-6 on the season and stayed 5th in the East. They trail leaders Milwaukee Bucks by three games, who now boast the best run in NBA following Los Angeles Lakers 100-114 defeat at home to Dallas Mavericks.
Philadelphia remains one of the hottest team in the East and are expected to pose the biggest challenge to Bucks and Giannis Atnetotokounmpo's ultimate ambitions of winning the east.
Utah Jazz: As mentioned, Utah are on the road these days and will play its final of the five away games against the Sixers. But it has been a dismal return on board following just a win in those four games, including the chastening 130-110 against the Toronto Raptors.
That said, the Jazz are 12-8 on the season and remain 6th in the Western Conference set-up.

Joel Embiid: The big Cameroonian is the face of the franchise. He is the leader of the pack and is deadly on both ends of the court.
Points Per Game: 22.8
Rebounds Per Game: 12.3
Assists Per Game: 2.8
Steals Per Game: 0.9
Blocks Per Game: 1.4
Tobias Harris: The former Los Angeles Clippers superstar is more than Embiid's sidekick in the team, for his offensive numbers are too good for that tag.
Points Per Game: 18.7
Rebounds Per Game: 7.1
Assists Per Game: 2.8
Steals Per Game: 1.1
Blocks Per Game: 0.8
Ben Simmons: More than an impact player. Can pop up with big numbers:

Rebounds Per Game: 6.9
Assists Per Game: 8.4
Steals Per Game: 2.3
Blocks Per Game: 0.6

Rebounds Per Game: 5.1
Assists Per Game: 3.7
Steals Per Game: 1.4
Blocks Per Game: 0.3
Bojan Bogdanovic: A must-have considering he offers a very good return for this relatively low price on Dream11. The big Serbian is averaging 21.5 points per game and is the 2nd best offensive player for the Jazz this season.
Philadelphia 76ers: Josh Richardson is listed as doubtful for Utah Jazz game as he nurses a muscle injury. Kyle O-Quinn missed the last game due to a calf injury but has been upgraded to questionable before the next game. Both the players will be monitored before the game. No other injury problems.
Philadelphia 76ers squad: Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris, Al Horford, Trey Burke, Zhaire Smith, Raul Neto, Matisse Thybulle, Mike Scott, James Ennis, Furkan Korkmaz, Jonah Bolden
