In good health and with the schedule finally turning in their favor, the Utah Jazz face the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night at EnergySolutions Arena.

The Jazz have played more road games (19) than any team in the NBA. But they play five of their next six games — and nine of their next 13 — at home

Asked if the players notice when favorable stretches of the schedule arrive, Gordon Hayward smiled.

"We definitely look at it," he said. "We definitely know when we’re at home. You have to take advantage of your home streaks and this is definitely one of them. It starts tonight. We have to make sure we come out and play well."

With the possible exception of rookie point guard Trey Burke, the Jazz will be 100 percent against Charlotte.

Burke rolled his ankle in Friday’s 105-103 win over the Lakers. He struggled in Saturday’s 98-90 loss to the Clippers, when missed 10 of his 14 shots and uncharacteristically committed six turnovers.

Asked about the condition of his ankle after the Jazz’s shoot-around Monday morning, Burke said,"It’s O.K. It’s fine. It’s a little sore. But it didn’t really bothered me the other night" in Los Angeles.
