The Utah Jazz look for a monster victory after splitting their last 10 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 95.5 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 93.2 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Gordon Hayward is averaging 17.7 points and 2.8 assists while Alec Burks is averaging 15.1 points and 3.9 rebounds. Rodney Hood is dishing 3.1 assists and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 10.8 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 74 percent from the free throw line. The Jazz have allowed less than 100 points in 10 of their 15 games this season. The Utah Jazz have won seven of their last 10 home games. Derrick Favors is questionable due to personal reasons.
The Warriors are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Jazz are 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 vs. Western Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Jazz have a great defense and are a lot better than people give them credit for. However, the Warriors are on another planet and Utah simply doesn't have the horses offensively to keep up, especially if Favors doesn't play. Have to side with Golden State here.
