SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH--No matter where the Cavs turned to defensively, there was no stopping the Utah Jazz from downtown as Utah's 19 three-pointers put the Cavs away early and in a commanding fashion 114-75.
Rudy Gobert led the rebounding category with 17 and the Cavs had no answers for anyone especially in the first half. Gobert also had 18 points, Mike Conley also with 18 points and Donovan Mitchell led all scorers with 19 points.
The lone positive for this game was the Cavs debut of Isaiah Hartenstein who was traded from the Denver Nuggets for JaVale McGee last week. Hartenstein led the Cavs with 14 rebounds. Cavs Head Coach JB Bickerstaff had this to say about Hartenstein:
Jazz currently have the best record in the NBA (35-11) and are considered championship contenders.
Cavs will head home to face the Philadelphia 76ers who currently have the best record in the East! Coverage begins this Thursday night at 6:05pm with Klaben Auto Stores Cavs Now with Greg Brinda follow by tipoff at 7pm on Newsradio WTAM 1100AM/106.9FM and the free iHeartRadio App.
