The Jazz have shot their way to the top of the NBA charts 15-1 in the last 16 games when they are welcomed to the limping Boston Celtics on Tuesday night. < Boston will be understaffed again, but the Brad Stevens crew have shown real strength with five games on this trip. We'll see what they can conjure up against Utah as a 4-point underdog.

At 19-5, Utah fends off both the Lakers and the Clippers for the top spot in the west, while the 12:10 Celtics as 4- Seed remain stable in the east.

Utah is known for its defense capability, anchored by annual DPOY nominee Rudy Gobert, and they haven’t missed a beat in this category this season. The Jazz occupies third place in the defensive standings, leads the league in defensive rebound and keeps the teams at 105.7 per night on the third lowest point per game.

People like to put him in a drawer as a team defender stuck, but Rudy Gobert can also be a big bans.

They also occupy sixth place in blocks and are the top 8 in limiting second chance points. In short, it’s hard to score against jazz, and they’re mostly one-off possessions.

However, the biggest improvement is Utah’s offense, especially long-distance shooting. They lead the league with three points per game and drill 17 money balls a night. The Jazz are shooting it up at the second best clip in the league and joining the Clippers as they are only teams over 40%. But they also lift at a high volume and only follow Portland in attempts per game in over 42 competitions.

Donovan Mitchell scores 23.5 points per game, one of six Utah players to double-digit points this season. Jordan Clarkson has become a super scorer and is in the running for the sixth NBA man of the year with 17.5 points per game, while Gobert does better than 13 points and 13 points a night.

Utah could for that Fall undercut as point guard Mike Conley suffers from a thigh injury on a daily basis.

Aside from one home game against the Lakers, Boston played seven out of eight games, and the Jazz game will be the fifth in a row before it goes down Returns home. Although Boston has had a calf injury without Marcus Smart in the last four games and a knee injury without Jaylen Brown in the last two games, Boston stayed afloat, switching between wins and losses.

They beat the Golden State before losing a narrow one to the Sacramento Kings. Boston wiped itself off and took a win against the LA Clippers, but ran out of steam in the next game against the Suns in Phoenix.

The only constant though was Jayson Tatum’s game. He’s been the top scorer for the Celtics in the last six games, and he’s progressing at 27 points a night (ninth in the NBA) in Boston while adding 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists, and with 41.9% firing from a distance.

The good news is Brown could be in the lineup on Tuesday, but for the Celtics to make real noise, Kemba Walker will have to go back to All-Star caliber. Walker was knocked down by a knee that paused him earlier in the year. He only played nine games averaging 15.9 points, but shot a terrible 35.7% off the field and 30.9% behind the bow.

One way for the Celtics to acquire additional possessions is to go into this one first class defensive rebounding team to penetrate. Boston is eighth in offensive rebounds of a game, so Utah’s front will definitely get a test from Tristan Thompson and Co. But it probably doesn’t matter if Boston can’t contain Utah’s long ball game. They’re the eighth worst in 3-point gunnery defense, leaving teams to score with a 36% hit rate.

While Boston is going to be a game, I think they fade the track and the jazz keeps making that sound.
