The Utah Jazz are playing the better basketball at the moment and have some value as an underdog here, but it feels like the Nets are due for a bounce back showing after some disappointing results. When the Nets play up to their ability and are a bit motivated, they've blown the doors off some really good teams. We're not getting enough points to get off the Nets here. Give me the home team and the small chalk.
