- Injury Report: The Jazz have no injuries to report.
- The Sixers are 12-7 at home, while the Jazz are 12-9 on the road.
- Jrue Holiday vs. Deron Williams. It's always fun to gauge Jrue's growth by his matchups against the league's top point guards.
- Gordon Hayward vs. Evan Turner. A nice matchup of two rookies coming off the bench, who've both had their struggles.
- Everybody wish Derek a happy birthday!
