Utah Jazz (0-6) at Toronto Raptors (2-4), 7 p.m.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Utah Jazz will try to get that elusive first victory Saturday night as they wrap up a four-game road trip against the Toronto Raptors.

The Jazz fell to 0-6 on Friday night in Chicago as the Bulls thumped them, 97-73.

The Jazz were expected to struggle this season as they decided to go with a youth movement. Although, the franchise hasn't started 0-6 since an 0-11 beginning to its inaugural campaign in New Orleans. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City in 1979-80.

"We can't feel sorry for ourselves, we just got to keep fighting," Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin said.

Utah fell behind by 12 after the first quarter and never really made it close Friday. The Jazz were 22 down after three and failed to score 20 points in three of four quarters.

Gordon Hayward paced Utah with 15 points. Derrick Favors and Alec Burks scored 10 points apiece. Rookie big man Rudy Gobert pulled down 12 rebounds in 15:38 of action.

The Raptors were sent to a loss Friday night when they fell in Indianapolis to the undefeated Pacers, 91-84. It was the third loss in a row for the Raps, who have yet to score 100 points in a game.

Toronto hung tough with the league's best team, but the second and third quarters were a disaster. During that 24-minute stretch, the Pacers outscored the Raptors, 50-27. Toronto finished strong to make it a game, but none the less, it was a third consecutive defeat.

"We have to be able to put together a full game," said forward Rudy Gay. "There are spurts when we play as good as any team in the league. But we let up just a little bit and they were able to come back and take advantage of that."

Gay scored a game-high 30 points, while Amir Johnson had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Kyle Lowry also netted 12 for the Raptors, as DeMar DeRozan only managed six points on a woeful 2-for-15 shooting night.

The Raptors only shot 39.5 percent from the field against Indiana, which is one of the NBA's best defensive units.

The Jazz won both of last season's matchups, including a triple-overtime thriller in Toronto. Utah is 14-1 in its last 15 against the Raptors and 9-2 in Toronto.
