Jazz, to halt losing streak when they meet Cavaliers

The Utah Jazz are currently on a five-game road losing streak, and they want to end it when they meet the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road. This meeting will be on December 20, 2022, at 8:00 AM (GMT+8), as the Cavaliers host the Jazz. Jazz are coming from a devastating 123-97 loss against the Bucks on their last game. Cavaliers on the other hand are from a narrow 100-99 win against the Mavericks on their last fixture. However, during their previous 10 meetings, Jazz are the ones winning, with a record of 7-3.

The Cavaliers currently remain at the top four of the Eastern Conference, as they are currently with a record of 20-11. With that record, they are currently at the third of the Eastern Conference. At home, they are 14-2, so expect this team to really make use of their home advantage, which they are good at. As for the Jazz, they are at the eighth of the Western Conference, with a record of 17-15. Their away games though does not look good at all as they only won six of their 16 away games this season. This includes their five-game losing streak on their away games, but they are hoping to finally end that streak to improve their record.

Coming into this game, the Jazz have one thing in mind- to bounce back from their frustrating loss against the Bucks. Actually, before their loss against the Bucks, they are in a two-game winning streak. Their loss against the Bucks are their fifth straight loss on the road, but if they win in this match, it will be their third win in their last four games. The loss of their star players are what gives them the disadvantage on their previous matches. Now that they are slowly coming back, expect Jazz to play their game. Offensively, the Jazz are averaging 117.2 points per game. Defense on the other hand is one of their major concern, as they give up 116 points per game.

Lauri Markkanen is the one leading the Jazz with 18 points, and four rebounds on their last game. Malik Beasley on the other hand also chipped in 18 points and 3 rebounds on their last game. Collin Sexton on the other hand remains to be questionable for this meeting.
