The Jazz are 27-12 on the season and in third place in the Western Conference standings.

Donovan Mitchell has appeared in 38 games this season for the Jazz. The high-flyer is averaging 24.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists while shooting 46.1 percent from the field, 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 84.2 percent from the free-throw line.

The Jazz are still playing without point guard Mike Conley, who has been out since Dec. 19 due to a hamstring injury. Utah acquired shooting guard Jordan Clarkson from the Cleveland Cavaliers to improve its bench play with Conley out.

Conley has only played in 22 games this season. He’s putting up 13.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.6 assists. The Jazz will need Conley to play like he did last season with the Memphis Grizzlies if they want to make some noise in the playoffs. Conley averaged 21.1 points per game for the Grizzlies during the 2018-19 campaign.

The Jazz have lost to the Houston Rockets in back-to-back postseasons. Mitchell, who has career averages of 22.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists, is the best player in Utah and eager to lead the team to a championship run.
