UTAH: The Jazz could be challenged to secure a second consecutive playoff berth, which would mean back-to-back postseason appearances for the first time this decade. While the West got deeper, the Jazz lost their lone All-Star in Gordon Hayward and second-leading scorer in George Hill. That means Rodney Hood enters his fourth season on a contract year with much more responsibility on his shoulders. When Hayward and Hill left they took a combined 38.8 points per game with them and the Jazz didn't sign any true scoring threats. Hood, a slick-shooting lefty, has his sights on the most improved player award. Utah will remain one of the best defensive teams in the league with Rudy Gobert as the anchor, but scoring will be difficult.
CLEVELAND: There's a chance that LeBron James could end up being as motivated as ever this season, fueled by Kyrie Irving's trade demand and coming off a season in which he finished fourth in the MVP voting. Despite losing Irving, the Cavs remain the class of the Eastern Conference and it's hard to imagine any team denying them a fourth straight Finals appearance, particularly with Boston having suffered a major blow with the season-ending injury Gordon Hayward suffered in the season opener at Cleveland. Isaiah Thomas is expected back from his back injury by year's end, but his return could end up complicating things for head coach Tyronn Lue, who must keep everyone happy with their playing time. Kevin Love's move to center should open floor space for James, Dwayne Wade and Derrick Rose. James can opt out of his contract next summer and become a free agent and his future plans will hover over the Cavs all season. But back with Dwayne Wade, he and the Cavs seem to be in a happy place.
Odds against Jazz in matchup vs. Cavaliers

CLEVELAND -- If you believe in scheduled losses, Saturday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers sure looks like one for the Utah Jazz.

To wit: The Jazz are smack in the middle of a brutal six-game road trip. Yes, Utah beat the Boston Celtics 107-95 on Friday, but then had to fly two hours to play a rested Cavaliers team that has been home and beating teams there all week.

The Jazz had dropped four straight before the win over the Celtics, but lost its two starting bigs -- Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors -- to injuries in the first half. Favors (stitches above his eye) would be more likely to play Saturday than Gobert (left knee injury).

Favors passed concussion protocol, while ESPN speculated that Gobert may have suffered an MCL sprain. Coach Quin Snyder told reporters Gobert, who's already missed time with a knee injury this season, had a "sore knee."

"It was an excellent effort and we managed to continue to try to do the things we felt we had to do to win the game, no matter who was out there," Snyder said. "Obviously Ekpe (Udoh), with Derrick (Favors) and Rudy (Gobert) out, did a terrific job. Ricky (Rubio) was great and it was good to see Ricky in the moment and competing. This group has got character and they're going to compete no matter the circumstances and they did."

The Jazz were led Friday by Rubio's 22 points. Jonas Jerebko and Rodney Hood scored 17 apiece off the bench, and rookie Donovan Mitchell scored 17 despite a 6-of-18 shooting performance.

Utah hasn't won a game in Cleveland since March 5, 2012. And LeBron James is averaging 30 points at home against the Jazz over the last three seasons.

The Cavs remain the NBA's hottest team with wins in 16 of their last 17 games. They've also won 10 straight at home, and James is averaging a triple-double in those games (29.6 points, 10.1 rebounds, 10.2 assists).

"He's the best player in the world, he better (carry us)," Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "He's going to carry a team. That's what he's been doing his whole career. But we got a lot of guys that are playing well and chipping in and helping him. ... A lot of guys are chipping in, playing well and that's what we need: a total team effort."

Perhaps Cleveland's biggest surprise has been the play of 36-year-old point guard Jose Calderon, who's 12-2 overall as a starter this season. He's averaging 12 points and shooting .66.7 percent (12 of 18) from 3-point range over his last four games, with 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals.

"First of all he's a true professional," James said. "And that's what we have around here. Guys that show up, no matter when they're number's called, they're just ready to go. But at the end of the day, it takes a little time to get into a new system and this is a new system for him."

Tristan Thompson is expected to return for a few minutes against the Jazz, according to cleveland.com, following his late scratch before Thursday's win over the Lakers due to left calf soreness. He has missed 20 games this season because of the injury.
