The Washington Wizards play host to the Utah Jazz at the Capital One Arena on Saturday night.

The Utah Jazz have been in great form as they’ve won 10 of their past 12 games and they will be eager to build on their current six-game win streak after blowing past the 76ers in a 118-96 road win on Thursday. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 22 points and six assists, Rudy Gobert added 17 points, 21 rebounds and two blocks while Bojan Bogdanovic and Hassan Whiteside each scored 14 points. As a team, the Jazz shot 47 percent from the field and 15 of 40 from the 3-point line as they poured in 34 points in the second quarter to take the lead into halftime, before pulling away in the fourth quarter where they held the 76ers to just 20 points. It was a real balanced offensive effort as eight players finished in double figures in scoring.

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in a rut as they’ve lost four of their past six games, but they will be looking to build some momentum after outlasting the Pistons in a 119-116 overtime road win on Wednesday. Kyle Kuzma led the team in scoring with 26 points, seven rebounds and four assists, Bradley Beal added 25 points on 10 of 19 shooting while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Wizards shot 47 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they squandered a 13-point lead in regulation, before making up for it in overtime where Kuzma drained the game-winning 3-pointer with just 0.6 seconds remaining.
