If you haven’t been paying attention to NBA trends of late, the spread is this game is going to come across as quite shocking. But in reality, it makes perfect sense.
The Utah Jazz have been one of the hottest teams in the league since the All-Star break and have just clinched their second-straight playoff appearance. The Golden State Warriors are still dealing with injuries, including Stephen Curry, who could miss the entire first round of the postseason.
The question here is whether seven points is too much against a Warriors squad that is still considered the title favorites in most circles.
This game should be better than the spread indicates.
Golden State Warriors
The Sacramento Kings enter this contest averaging 113.9 points per night. That number is good enough for 1st out of 30 teams so far this season.
Defensively, Golden State drops to 17th in the league, allowing opponents to drop an average of 107.3 points per night.
In terms of defensive efficiency, however, the team is 8th, as it gives up just 104 points per 100 possessions. The reason for the raw points-per-game numbers being so high is that this team runs the fifth-fastest pace of any team in the league.
In terms of offensive efficiency, the Warriors also rank first in the league—tied with the Houston Rockets. Both squads are scoring 112.7 points per 100 possessions as the season winds down.
The Utah Jazz enter this game scoring 104.1 points per night. That number is good enough for only 19th in the NBA.
In terms of offensive efficiency, Utah is 16th, scoring 106.2 points per 100 possessions.
On defense, Utah is as good as ever. The squad gives up 100.1 points per nigh,t which is good enough for second in the league, and it’s just as good when looking at defensive efficiency.
This season, the Jazz are allowing opponents to score just 101.9 points per 100 possessions. That number is good enough for second, just behind the Boston Celtics.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Between Curry being out, Golden State’s defensive efficiency and Utah’s slow, steady pace, this would should be a tight game when it’s all said and done.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Golden State Warriors ATS
We agree the Jazz should be and are the favorites, and will likely get the win straight up. But thinking this one could be decided by more than seven points is discrediting what the Warriors are capable of—even without Curry at their disposal.
