SALT LAKE CITY – Rookies Brice Sensabaugh and Taylor Hendricks are starting to find their groove at the NBA level after spending much of the season playing with the G-League’s Utah Stars.

The Utah Jazz are hosting the Donovan Mitchell-less Cleveland Cavaliers at Delta Center on Tuesday, April 2.

One game after hitting five threes and scoring a career-high 22 points against Sacramento, the former Ohio State Buckeye hit three straight third-quarter threes, leading a 9-2 run to help the Jazz within striking distance of the playoff bound Cavs. Sensabaugh has 17 points and five threes to lead Utah.

Fellow rookie Taylor Hendricks made two threes in the second half and scored 11 points in 18 minutes.

The Jazz trail 83-70 with 4:30 left in the third quarter.

Jazz, Cavs Banged Up Late In Season

The Jazz will host the Cavaliers to snap a season-worst nine-game losing streak.

The streak is tied for the fifth-longest in franchise history and their longest since the 2014-15 season, the first year of the Quin Snyder era in Utah.

Lauri Markkanen (shoulder), John Collins (back), and Jordan Clarkson (SI) remain out for the Jazz against the Cavaliers.

The Jazz haven’t won a game since beating the Atlanta Hawks on March 15 in Salt Lake City.

After a solid start to the year, the Cavaliers have been playing sub-.500 basketball over the last month.

Since March 2, the Cavaliers are 6-10 in their last 16 outings and own the ninth-worst offensive rating and the seventh-worst defensive rating.

With seven games left in the regular season, only one game separates the third-seeded Cavaliers from the fifth-seeded Orlando Magic in the standings.

Cleveland has the ninth-easiest remaining schedule in the NBA.
