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.
ORLANDO: After another disappointing non-playoff season, the Magic didn't overhaul the roster as had become the norm the last several years. New president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman and general manager John Hammond preferred to tweak the roster instead, which hasn't generated much optimism that things will be much different this season. The most significant off-season addition was Jonathon Simmons, who came over from the Spurs and gives the Magic a defensive toughness and explosiveness from the guard position that has been missing. Jonathan Isaac, the Magic's No. 6 overall pick in June's NBA draft, is still not physically strong enough to be a starter, but his length, athleticism and willingness to play defense gives him a chance to make an impact off the bench. The only realistic hope that the Magic have of making the postseason for the first time in six seasons is that the bottom half of the Eastern Conference is equally flawed.
Struggling teams collide when Jazz, Magic meet

For two days, the Orlando Magic geared up and prepared to get over their disappointment from a difficult road trip.

For the Utah Jazz, the turnaround time from their latest disappointing showing is about 24 hours.

Two teams coming off frustrating performances get together Saturday night when Orlando hosts Utah.

Orlando returns home for the first time since beating the New York Knicks on Nov. 8 and is back after losing three of four on a Western swing. The Magic began the trip in promising fashion by hitting 13 3-pointers and shooting 52.4 percent in a 128-112 win over the Phoenix Suns on Nov. 10.

Then came the disappointment.

After beating Phoenix, the Magic trailed by as many as 30 in a 125-107 loss to the Denver Nuggets. That was followed by a 10-point loss to the Golden State Warriors Monday. The trip ended with Orlando blowing a 14-point first half lead in a 99-94 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Magic won't be home for long.

After facing Utah, they host the Indiana Pacers Monday before another four-game trip with stops in Minnesota, Boston, Philadelphia, and Indiana. Then if a second four-game trip isn't tough enough, Orlando follows it up by hosting Golden State and Oklahoma City, making the next 72 hours even more significant.

"It's critical that we get these next two games at home," center Nikola Vucevic said. "Right now, we're 8-7 and we need to stay above .500 before we go on this next trip. It's very important that we get these next two.

"It's two big games coming up and then we have another tough road trip, but that's part of this league. If you want to win in this league, you've got to get through like this. We have to find a way."

Orlando remains over .500 because it found a way early on by winning six of its first eight games. Starting with a double-digit home loss to the Chicago Bulls on Nov. 4, they are 2-5 in their last seven.

In those games, Orlando is averaging 101.7 points on 45.4 percent shooting and hitting 34.9 percent of its 3-pointers. In their first eight games, the Magic averaged 114.2 points, shot 48.9 percent and made 44.2 percent of their 3-point attempts.

"You learn every game about your group and I like the team we have. We have a good team," Orlando coach Frank Vogel said. "We knew this was going to be a tough trip -- we were hoping to get more than one win -- but we have to lick our wounds and get back on the winning track when we get home."

Meanwhile, Utah is more than two weeks into its struggles. Since Ricky Rubio scored 30 points in an overtime win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Nov. 1, Utah 1-7 in their last eight games and the injuries are continuing.

During the last eight games, the Jazz are averaging 100.1 points and shooting 41.8 percent. Defensively they are allowing 109.1 points on 48.7 percent shooting.

Already without Rudy Gobert (right knee), Joe Johnson (left wrist), Rubio (sore right Achilles) and Thabo Sefolosha (sore right knee), the Jazz fell to 0-6 on the road with a 119-107 loss to the Brooklyn Nets Friday when they trailed for the final 41-plus minutes.

"We were missing assignments defensively and once we got that down pat, we couldn't stay in front of nobody so that was uncharacteristic of us, but we've got one tomorrow to get this bad taste out of our mouth," said Jazz guard Rodney Hood, who scored 17 points. "We need a win bad."

Rookie Donovan Mitchell was the starting point guard for Rubio and he totaled 15 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds. Raul Neto also saw time at point guard and scored a career-high 22 points in 19 players.

"Obviously, right now we're battling with whatever healthy guys we have and just trying to do whatever to get a win," Utah forward Joe Ingles said. "I'm just sick of losing."

Rubio wasn't hurt on a specific play, but the Jazz are playing it cautious and he might be out again Saturday. Since the 30-point game, he is shooting 27.3 percent.

"He's had soreness in his Achilles and you want to be smart, especially with what we're dealing with," Utah coach Quin Snyder said before Friday's loss. "The last thing we need is Ricky to go out and try to show his toughness and play, which is what he wants to do."
