UTA vs PHI Dream11: Two teams who had a strong start to the season but have lost a bunch of games lately will meet up here. In this match, the Utah Jazz hosts the Philadelphia 76ers in a cross-conference affair. Utah has lost four of the last five games while the Philly squad is on a four-game losing streak.

Jazz has returned with the same core as last season. Mitchell is the offensive while Conley, Clarkson, Bogdanovic, and Ingles can rain it down from long-range. Gobert and O’Neale form a formidable forward pairing and the team has disciplined players on both ends.

76ers have been missing Joel Embiid for the last four games and have lost all of those games. While Forward Tobias Harris has been stellar while the guard depth of Curry, Maxey, Milton, and Korkmaz has produced, the team is missing Joel Embiid. Center Andre Drummond has hoarded 15 rebounds or more in each game lately but that hasn’t been enough.

Host: Utah Jazz
Visitors: Philadelphia 76ers

Match Timing: 17 November, @ 08:30 AM
Venue: Vivint Smart Home Arena

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Jazz has lost a bit of its tune
Jazz is one of the top squads in the league but has struggled in holding teams down recently. But bigger than the defensive troubles have been their usually well-oiled offense that has faltered late in games. Clarkson does average 15.1 PPG but offensive inconsistencies have plagued while Joe Ingles’ offense has disappeared a bit. Conley has been a tad down too and O’Neale is not producing earlier which is why the offense has taken a hit

Sixers defense is worse without Embiid

Sixers have become a poor defensive squad in absence of Joel Embiid. While Drummond has been a fighter, he is not an anchor like Embiid, because of which the team has given 115 points or more in their three losses. Offensively, the team does have a plethora of options but it is the defense that needs fixing for the visiting team.
