UTA vs NOP Dream11: In this inter-conference affair, the Utah Jazz takes on the New Orleans Pelicans. Utah is five games above the 50% win record while Pelicans are way below that. During the last meeting, the Pelicans beat the Jazz 98:97 in the last seconds. More information such as the last game stats, projected fantasy points, and the fantasy lineup will be provided here.
Utah is above the winning mark but the team hasn’t looked as clinical as last season despite returning with the same core. Mitchell’s scoring has been down recently while Clarkson is not playing with the same fire as the last season. Ingles has seen a reduction in his minutes but largely, the Jazz still is a sturdy outfit.
Pelicans look lost without Zion Williamson but have played some decent basketball recently. Ingram and Valanciunas have taken the scoring duties while Graham has proven to be an effective long-range scorer. Has New Orleans gained some much-needed steam?

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Jazz: What trajectory is Utah taking?
Recently, Jazz has lost two games during the closing moments and that has affected their otherwise stellar record. Utah’s defense doesn’t look tight as last season but it is still among the elite teams. With the core of Conley, Mitchell, Bogdanovic, O’Neale, Gobert, Clarkson, and Ingles, you’d believe the Jazz can still end up finishing among the top four teams in the Western Conference.
Pelicans: Zion defines them
With Zion Williamson out, the team has struggled at both ends of the floor. Williamson gave the team around 25-30 points, 8-12 rebounds, and 4-6 assists regularly last season and his presence surely makes a difference. Still, the team has won three out of the last five games, against teams such as Wizards, Jazz, and Clippers, who have a winning record. Is this a sign for change?
