The Golden State Warriors invade the Delta Center to do battle with the Utah Jazz on Thursday night. Here’s a Warriors vs Jazz Prediction.

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors have been on a tear lately as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after coming up short to the Clippers in a disappointing 130-125 loss last night. Stephen Curry continued his red-hot form with 41 points and five assists on 15 of 31 shooting, Brandin Podziemski added 25 points with seven rebounds and eight assists while Jonathan Kuminga chipped in with 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Warriors shot 45 percent from the field and 18 of 47 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Clippers right from the start and looked to be in full control when they led by 15 points in the third quarter, but they took their foot off the gas and it cost them in the fourth quarter where they leaked 44 points to suffer one of their more painful defeats of the season.

Utah Jazz

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been in a major slump lately as they’ve lost six of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after getting routed by the Lakers in a 138-122 loss last night. Collin Sexton led the team with 18 points on eight of 15 shooting, Jordan Clarkson added 17 points with five assists off the bench while Lauri Markkanen chipped in with 16 points and eight rebounds. As a team, the Jazz shot 48 percent from the field and 14 of 45 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in control when they poured in 41 points in the second quarter to keep pace with the Lakers, until the third quarter where they got outscored by 38-23 to trail the rest of the way. The Jazz just weren’t good on the defensive end as they allowed the Lakers to shoot over 57 percent from the field and they just had no answer for the Lakers’ duo of Anthony Davis and Rui Hachimura who combined for 73 points.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have won eight of their last 10 games as home underdogs on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • The Jazz have covered the spread in nine of their last 10 games as home underdogs on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • Nine of the Jazz’s last 10 home games on the second leg of a back-to-back have gone OVER the total points line.

Golden State Warriors Team Facts

  • The Warriors have won each of their last 10 games as favorites against opponents who are on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • The Warriors have failed to cover the spread in each of their last seven games against Western Conference opponents following a loss.
  • Each of the Warriors’ last six games as road favorites have gone UNDER the total points line.

Warriors vs Jazz Prediction

The Warriors are playing some of their best basketball of the season and they should’ve definitely beaten the Clippers last night, so I still like their chances against this slumping Jazz team who just got routed by the Lakers for their sixth loss in their last eight outings. Sure, the Jazz are certainly capable of getting the win here, but the Warriors are the team with all the momentum and I think they can bounce back from last night’s loss with a narrow win and cover in this spot.
