Donovan Mitchell led Utah with 37 points on 12-of-26 shooting including 6-of-13 from 3-point distance plus 7-of-7 at the free throw line. He also accounted for seven rebounds and five assists.

Bucks ease past Pistons
Milwaukee improved to 13-3 overall and 5-1 at home Saturday night with a 104-90 victory over Detroit. The Bucks led 54-47 at halftime and outscored the Pistons in every quarter of the contest. Giannis Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee with 28 points on 12-of-22 shooting including 1-of-3 from 3-point range plus 3-of-9 at the free throw line.

NBA Betting Trends
The Jazz are 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games. Utah is 1-4 ATS in its last five games versus the Eastern Conference.
The Bucks are 0-4 ATS in their last four games versus the Western Conference. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
Utah does not know if it will have Gobert available tonight, which would be a major blow. But the Jazz do have a fantastic history against the Bucks as they have covered 26 of the last 34 meetings. Milwaukee is tough of course, but the Jazz play good defense even without Gobert manning the middle and if Mitchell or Bogdanovic get hot they can keep up with anyone. I'll take the points here with Utah.
