The Golden State Warriors travel to Salt Lake City to battle the Utah Jazz tonight.
The Golden State Warriors had their five-game win streak snapped on Tuesday when they fell to the Bulls by 113-111 in overtime. Klay Thompson led the way with 30 points on 13 of 27 shooting, David Lee added 24 points off the bench while Stephen Curry added 21 points and nine assists but shot just nine of 23 from the field as the Warriors narrowly fell to the Bulls. Defensively, the Warriors did a nice job of holding Derrick Rose to a poor shooting night of 13 of 33 from the field and 11 turnovers, but with the game on the line, Rose delivered the dagger with a stepback jumper with just seven seconds left on the clock. Despite the loss, Golden State are still a league-best 36-7 on the season and 21-2 at home.
Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have lost seven of their last 10 games overall and will be looking to avoid a third straight loss after falling to the Clippers by 94-89 on Wednesday. Enes Kanter had a strong game of 21 points and 11 rebounds while Derrick Favors added 18 points of his own, but poor production from the Jazz's guards meant was too much to overcome against the Clippers who have players like Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford. With the loss, Utah drops to 16-30 on the season and 8-14 at home.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games against a team with a losing record and 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games, while the Jazz are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following a loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record.
Head to head, the Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall and 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings in Utah.
Plain and simple, the Warriors should have no problem beating the Jazz by double digits, especially since they've already beaten them easily twice this season.
