What channel is Raptors vs. Jazz on? Game preview, start time, injury report

One down, five to go.

On Thursday, the Toronto Raptors travel to Utah to take on the Jazz. It's stop two of a six-game road trip for the Raptors, which started on Monday with a tough loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

OG Anunoby continued his strong play in Toronto's loss to Portland, only 23 of his team-high 28 points came in the first half. Pascal Siakam was the team's second-leading scorer to the tune of 20 points on 7-for-15 shooting from the field.

In four games, Siakam is now averaging 17.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 32.3 minutes on the season. He's scored 20 or more points in back-to-back games and has one double-double.

The Jazz have hit a bit of a rough patch lately, losing four of five games following a 7-1 start, but they're coming off of a blowout win over the Philadelphia 76ers in which Bojan Bogdanovic scored a game-high 27 points and Rudy Gobert posted a 15-point, 17-rebound double-double.

Gobert also tied his season-high with four blocks in the win.

The Jazz enter Thursday's matchup with the Raptors ranking first in offensive efficiency (113.0) and 11th in defensive efficiency (104.1). The Raptors rank ninth in offensive efficiency (109.4) but have struggled defensively lately, resulting in them falling to 19th in defensive efficiency (108.8).

Utah's high-powered offence will be a good test for Toronto's defence.
