The Philadelphia 76ers have not won consecutive games since a February 13 win over the Charlotte Bobcats, following a win over the Cavs. On Friday, they will look to make it two straight against the Utah Jazz, who have won four of their last five.

The Sixers are coming off one of the most impressive wins of their 2011-12 season – a 32 point beatdown of the Boston Celtics – when the 2010 second overall pick, Evan Turner, played the best game of his career, scoring a career-high 26 points.

The Jazz are 19-19 overall, but 5-13 away from Energy Solutions Arena. They have however; won two straight road games, against the Cavs and Bobcats.

Utah is one of the better rebounding teams in the league, which has proven to be a weakness of the Sixers this season.
