The Utah Jazz are one of the hotter teams in the league and have also been money making machines, but the Golden State Warriors have played improved basketball these last couple of weeks and are capable of an upset here and there when their roll players show up. The Warriors are more than capable of spending up the Jazz and making this game interesting. I'll take a shot with the Warriors and the points.
