One thing each Utah Jazz player should wish for this Christmas season

Christmas is around the corner, which brings good bad news for the Utah Jazz. The good news is they will be home for Christmas and get to spend the holiday with their families. The bad news is that they weren’t invited to play on the big day for the NBA on National Television.

Last season they got to face off against the Portland Trail-Blazers on the 25th on ABC, which was the first time in my memory the Jazz were selected to play on Christmas. Given how good everyone thought this team was going to be back in August, I thought the Jazz had a chance of playing a little more on national TV.

Instead the Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans will be playing on the big day. Both teams are at the bottom in the Western Conference, and neither Zion Williamson or Stephen Curry will be suiting up for this one

Fortunately for Utah, the Christmas day bye should be a good opportunity to refuel and replenish after their three game road trip in the south. They will certainly need it as they have been playing their starting guys upwards of 30 minutes in games that go down to the wire.

I made a list of one thing every Utah Jazz player needs to have this Christmas, excluding the three players bouncing back and forth from the G-League. Without any further ado, let’s get started.
