In their last games the Warriors beat the L.A. Clippers 115-98 and the Jazz beat the Phoenix Suns 112-105.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors rank 1st in the league in points per game and 20th in opponents’ points per game.
In their big win over the Clippers the Warriors shot a solid 47.7% from the floor and their D held L.A. to 39.6% shooting.
While Golden State did not have a great nigh shooting the 3 they did not get off to a good start outscoring the Clippers by 18 points in the first quarter and they dominated inside with 20 more points in the paint (58-38).
While 2 of the big 3 in Steph Curry and Kevin Durant did not have big scoring nights and struggled with their shots Klay Thomson went for 24 points and Draymond Green went for 22.
Curry and Durant combined to miss 12 of their 13 3-pointers with Curry going 0/8 from deep.
This is the Warriors first match up with the Jazz this season.
The Warriors are 10-1 on the road this season.
The Jazz only rank 23rd in the league in points per game, but they have the league’s best defense only allowing 95.5 ppg. You can be sure that defense will be tested tonight by the dynamic offense of Golden State.
In their win over the Suns the Jazz shot 49.3% from the floor and allowed the Suns to shoot 46.4%.
Gordon Hayward has been on fire as of late and he went for 28 points in the win over the Suns. Rudy Gobert had a career high of 22 points in the game and also grabbed 11 boards.
The Jazz have to play better interior D in this game than they did in the Phoenix game allowing the Suns to score 54 points in the paint.
Hayward and George Hill are both averaging 20 ppg. Hayward is a SF and the other top 2 scorers for Utah are guards, so Golden State has to play solid D on the perimeter.
This season the Jazz are 7-4 at home.
