Having passed a test against one tough defense, the Utah Jazz face another Sunday when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland is the second of three straight opponents that rank in the Top 10 among NBA teams in defensive rating. Utah faced the first one in that gauntlet in Salt Lake City on Friday.
In the opening minutes of the Wizards' game against the Cavaliers on Friday night, Cleveland center Jarrett Allen scored 11 of his team's 13 points. Four of his five baskets were assisted by Darius Garland and three were on pick-and-rolls executed by them as a duo. When it was over, the Wizards had suffered a blowout loss, one in which they trailed by 36 points.
