There are games you just can’t lose.

For the sake of the Raptors’ sanity, Saturday’s game against the winless Utah Jazz was one of those.

Whatever problems the Raptors are having pale in comparison to what Ty Corbin and the Jazz are going through.

Having allowed veteran big men Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap to leave via free agency in the off-season, the Jazz opened the year with 23-year-old Gordon Hayward as its longest tenured player.

This was by design. The plan is to build around the young core of Hayward, Enes Kanter, Derrick Favors and Trey Burke when he returns to health.

But in the meantime, there are going to be a lot of nights like Saturday evening at the Air Canada Centre when a team having problems of its own like the Raptors takes it out on the young pups still learning the NBA game,
