Gonna be a tough night defensively for Bojan Bogdanovic if he has to guard Jarrett Allen on the blocks like that – 3:43 PM

Donovan Mitchell and 7-foot Lauri Markkanen are matched up on both sides – 3:41 PM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Last time the @Utah Jazz faced Jarrett Allen he had 19 points, 18 rebounds, three steals, and two blocks on 8-9 shooting and was a +20 in a huge Nets win.
So they’ve probably got to have better success against him today if they want to win. – 3:38 PM

Surprising number of people wearing Jazz jerseys here in Cleveland today. Even saw two buddies rocking old-school Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson unis. – 3:21 PM

Utah will begin putting Rose Bowl tickets on sale tomorrow.
I wonder how long it takes to exhaust the initial allotment.

Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah is likely to finish No. 11 in the CFP rankings based on what’s been released thus far.
Utes finished 11th in 2019, too. – 2:36 PM

The lone Utah-Ohio State meeting all-time.
Sept. 27, 1986: Ohio State 64, Utah 6.
Could be a factor on New Year’s Day. – 2:28 PM

In honor of Cavs Kids Night, our #CavsKidsClub Jr. Reporter DJ Lily Jade got to ask Coach a question during his pregame media availability…
He’s a big fan of Blue Ivy’s dad 😂 pic.twitter.com/GOrELLx1G92:22 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Hassan Whiteside is OUT this afternoon in Cleveland against the Cavaliers. Not a great time to lose your second center. Rudy Gobert will be the only big for the Jazz against the biggest and best-at-being-big team in the league.
Tall order – 2:17 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
As Quin Snyder was discussing the Jazz having to deploy Rudy Gay some at the 5 with Hassan Whiteside out, he noted “it’s ironic that it happens today when we’re going against three 7-footers.” He said opportunities have been limited to work on it, but they anticipated the need. – 2:16 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
No Hassan Whiteside today for the @UtahJazz. – 2:05 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Hassan Whiteside is out for the Jazz this afternoon. – 2:03 PM

Hassan Whiteside is out tonight – 2:01 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Bickerstaff said the biggest benefit of having Ricky Rubio is that his willingness to accept a bench role “allows me to hold everyone accountable. … He’s a starting PG in the NBA — on a good team. If he’s willing to do that, there’s no reason for anyone not to sacrifice.” – 1:52 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Cavs coach JB Bickerstaff says he’s concerned about the Jazz’s sheer quantity of good 3-point shooters, but is happy with the adjustments Cleveland has made the past few games to limit opponents’ 3 attempts. – 1:49 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Not exactly the best slate of NFL games in the early window. Good things Cavs-Jazz starts in a couple of hours! – 1:39 PM

The daily challenge of the NBA is awesome
Friday Jazz played #4 defense, which switched the pick and roll more than any team in the NBA
Today Jazz play #3 defense and they switch at one of lowest rates and play almost exclusively drop big with amazing length – 11:04 AM
David Locke @DLocke09
Utah Jazz are a 4.5 pt favorite today in Cleveland. Jazz offense is #1 in the NBA and Cleveland defense is #3
Jazz have won 7 of 9. Cleveland has won 4 straight. Tip off is at 1:30 mtn

If the playoffs started today the Knicks would be out of the play-in tournament. I could see drop off from Cleveland and maybe Washington but East has more depth than West this season. pic.twitter.com/ene65qtsa59:53 AM

NEW: We’re about set for a Utah-Ohio State Rose Bowl after Michigan beat Iowa last night to win the Big Ten.
