             === Jazz search north of the border for first win ===
 
 (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.
