CLEVELAND -- If you believe in scheduled losses, Saturday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers sure looks like one for the Utah Jazz.
To wit: The Jazz are smack in the middle of a brutal six-game road trip. Yes, Utah beat the Boston Celtics 107-95 on Friday, but then had to fly two hours to play a rested Cavaliers team that has been home and beating teams there all week.
The Jazz had dropped four straight before the win over the Celtics, but lost its two starting bigs -- Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors -- to injuries in the first half. Favors (stitches above his eye) would be more likely to play Saturday than Gobert (left knee injury).
