The Utah Jazz seem to be in a free fall. They've lost three of their last four, and in those three losses they've gotten behind by 30 or more points. They are just 3-10 since longtime coach Jerry Sloan resigned and now are looking for a go-to player since Deron Williams was traded to the New Jersey Nets for Derrick Favors and Devin Harris.
Utah has allowed an average of 112.3 points over the last 10 games and has allowed its opponenets to shoot 50.9 percent from the floor during that time.
Those all seem to be good reasons to think the Sixers should be able to win this game tonight, but it might not be that easy. The Jazz is two games behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference and look at tonight as a must win if they are to stay in the hunt.
The Sixers are coming off one of their worst games of the season Saturday night, a 102-74 smackdown at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks. They haven't lost two games in a row since the middle of January.
