The Charlotte Hornets aim to rebound from a dismal performance as they face the Utah Jazz on Saturday following a disappointing loss to the Houston Rockets. Coach Steve Clifford emphasized the need for the team's right attitude and intensity, particularly after a second-half collapse against Houston, where they were outscored 83-51.

Clifford stressed the importance of maintaining concentration and playing well throughout the game, acknowledging the demanding nature of the league. Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz broke a three-game losing streak with a victory over the Washington Wizards, highlighting the challenges of winning on the road in the NBA.

Jazz coach Will Hardy emphasized the significance of road wins while acknowledging the difficulty of playing away from home. Utah forward Kelly Olynyk echoed the sentiment, emphasizing the team's need to return to their style of play and execute effectively on both ends of the court.

Forward John Collins provided a significant contribution for the Jazz with 22 points and 16 rebounds, marking a strong performance in his debut season with the team. Collins, formerly of the Atlanta Hawks, looks to maintain his impact as the Jazz strive for consistency and success on the road.
