The Warriors’ quest for 73 wins continues Wednesday night against a red-hot Utah Jazz team that is fighting not just for playoff positioning, but for a spot in the postseason.
These two Western Conference squads tip off at 9:00 p.m. ET at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors can’t get cocky against this Utah squad.
Actually, let’s immediately retract that statement. The Warriors must get cocky against this Utah squad, because Golden State is at its best when it’s free flowing and playing with confidence.
It’s going to need to be at its best against a sneaky Western Conference opponent.
The key here is going to be what it always is for Golden State: Getting the Splash Bros splashing. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have become hands down the best backcourt in the NBA, and while we’ve seen how important a guy like Draymond Green is for this team’s success, we’ve also seen how far the Warriors drop when their shooting stars fail to live up to their well-deserved reputation.
Defensively, containing Rodney Hood will be a priority. The 23-year-old just lit up the Los Angeles Lakers for 30 points in just 29 minutes, and if he can come anywhere close to his shooting percentage against the Warriors (11-of-13 from the field, 8-of-9 from the three-point line), the Jazz will have a shot at taking down the best team in the NBA.
Utah is hot right now. Like, hot like Hansel hot.
Not only has this team won four of its last five (including its most recent 48-point blowout over the Los Angeles Lakers), but it’s successfully taken down eight of its last 10 opponents.
The Jazz are streaking at the right time, especially considering they were ice cold just a few weeks back.
At this point, it’s looking as if the Jazz have a better shot at making the postseason than the Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks — the two other teams fighting for the Western Conference’s final spots.
A loss to the Warriors wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world considering the level of competition, but a win would do wonders not just for positioning, but for their conference during the season’s home stretch.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Picking against the Warriors is a never ideal…but in this case, we’re doing it and feeling pretty good.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Utah ATS
The Warriors are just 1-5 ATS in their last six games playing on zero days rest. Utah is not only playing off a day of rest, but its core pieces didn’t play late into the Monday-night game that saw the Jazz take down the Los Angeles Lakers by an unbelievable 48 points.
Not only are we picking the Jazz against the spread, we’re doing the unthinkable and give Utah a win straight up against the No. 1 team in the Association.
