The Utah Jazz and the Toronto Raptors will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at Air Canada Centre.

ABOUT THE JAZZ (22-14): The Raptors began their road trip in Utah on Dec. 23 and handed the Jazz a 104-98 loss in which the backcourt combo of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan burned them for a combined 60 points. Utah won four straight following that loss but all four were against sub-.500 teams, and the schedule got much tougher with Boston kicking off a stretch of four of five games against winning teams. The Jazz are patiently awaiting the return of point guard George Hill, who sat out the last two games with a concussion and a lip laceration and remains day-to-day.

ABOUT THE RAPTORS (23-11): Toronto had not suffered a double-digit loss before falling 121-111 at Golden State and 110-82 at San Antonio on the trip, and the only silver lining in Tuesday’s loss was that Lowry only logged 29 minutes and DeRozan 32. Lowry, who averaged 31 points on the first five games of the trip and went 6-of-7 from 3-point range in a win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, slumped to a season-low six points on 2-of-9 shooting on Tuesday. “I just missed some shots,” Lowry told reporters. “All my 3’s, besides one, I thought were good shots. Honestly, I just missed shots. I don’t think they took me away from getting to where I wanted to get to.”
