Big trade that brought Melo to NYC shocked New Yorkers who forgot the Big Apple had an NBA team.

Wednesday at Raptors, 5 p.m., FSN

Toronto hurt Utah re: the Nets' lottery pick by losing twice in England. Beating Raptors will only hurt more.

Friday at Timberwolves, 6 p.m., FSN

Wild guess: Kevin Love will get a double-double, cause that's what he does, in a T-Wolves' loss, cause that's what they do.

Saturday at Bulls, 6 p.m., FSN

Here's hoping Devin Harris and Tyrone Corbin don't get into a halftime tiff when the Utah Jazz visit the Chicago Jazz.

Who's Hot:

Andrei Kirilenko

Mr. Versatility has shot 59.4% with 16.3 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 4.3 apg in last six

Who's Not:

Earl Watson

Tough-luck point guard has stitches in his mouth for second time this season.

The BIG stat

12: By beating Sacramento in overtime on Saturday night, the 2010-11 Jazz took themselves out of the running to overtake the 1981-82 Jazz for the franchise's all-time home losing streak. Utah ended its current skid at seven straight at EnergySolutions Arena. In '82, the Jazz fell 12 straight times at the Salt Palace.
