The Wizards have won two of their first three games on his five-game road trip and want to continue to build on the camaraderie that has begun to form in recent weeks. They will have a reunion with former Wizard Josh Howard, who signed with Utah after two injury-plagued seasons in Washington. Shelvin Mack will face his former Butler teammate Gordon Hayward for the first time.
Utah (14-14) has lost five of its past six games but remains one of the league’s best teams at home, with an 11-5 record. The Wizards won the last meeting at Energy Solutions Arena last season, pulling out a 100-95 overtime victory over the Jazz on March 28.
