Five Things to Watch
1. Keeping the momentum going. Tuesday was by far the Bulls' most impressive victory of the season, thrashing a healy Trail Blazers team by 23 on the road. But it's still just one game on this six-game trip for the Bulls, and it'll mean little if the Bulls don't make the most of their remaining five games. They have a good chance to do it against a shorthanded Jazz team, but these were the kinds of games a year ago the Bulls lost.
2. An encore for Jerian Grant. Tuesday night's MVP was Jerian Grant, who scored 18 points in his first start for the Bulls. It seems like there's a chance Rajon Rondo misses tonight's matchup in Utah, meaning we'll get a chance to see if Grant can continue to stay aggressive, work well with Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade and play aggressive defense against a tough Utah backcourt.
3. Stifling defense. As Insider Vincent Goodwill wrote on Wednesday, the Bulls are really stepping up defensively. Going one step further, the Bulls are currently No. 9 in defensive efficiency. Utah has been a middle-of-the-pack offensive team, though they're more comfortable at home and Gordon Hayward is getting on a roll. This is a great test for the Bulls' defense after locking down Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum on Tuesday.

4. Taking advantage inside. Derrick Favors is dealing with a bone contusion in his knee and will miss Thursday's game. Yes, Utah still has 7-footer Rudy Gobert inside, but without Favors the Bulls should be able to win the frontcourt battle on both ends of the floor.
5. Battle of the stars. Jimmy Butler is on fire and Dwyane Wade is playing well with rest. Those two will go head-to-head with Hayward, who has scored at least 20 points in five of his six games this season. He's looking to bounce back after an ugly game against the Grizzlies on Tuesday. Butler will draw the assignment of slowing him down, and it will be a fun one to watch.
