Look for the Jazz to block a lot of shots in Boston. Utah is one of the better teams in the league in blocks per game and Boston is near the bottom.

Gordon Hayward has gotten some key blocks in games so far, but the real player to watch in this game is Derrick Favors.

Favors is averaging four blocks per contest in the last three games and 2.5 per game for the season. He also averages 4.97 blocks per 48 minutes, third in the NBA.

Jazz fans are hoping for a block party in Boston.
