The Jazz are hot winners of 7 of their last 8 games, including their last 4, and their only loss in that span was a 7-point home loss to the Warriors.
The Warriors have the best record in the NBA and they have won 8 of their last 9 games including their last 4. This game pits the Warriors, who have the highest scoring team in the league, against the Jazz, who are allowing the fewest ppg.
In their last games the Warriors beat the Portland Trailblazers 135-90 and the Jazz beat the Memphis Grizzlies 82-73.
The Jazz only rank 24th in points per game, but 1st in opponents’ points allowed.
In their win over the Grizzlies in their last game the Jazz showed their killer defense holding Memphis to a FG% of only 30.1%. They shot 45.5% from the floor.
The Warriors are a great 3-pt shooting team and the Jazz need to defend the perimeter like they did in the Memphis game where the Griz only made 2 of their 23 3-pointers.
Gordon Hayward went for 22 points in the win over the Grizzlies and Rudy Gobert went for 21 points and 12 boards. Gobert is averaging a double-double for the season and he has been putting up big games in the Jazz win streak.
The Jazz have four players that are averaging at least 12 ppg and Hayward and George Hill are both averaging at least 20 ppg. However, Hill has been sidelined with an injury and he will not play in this game.
The Jazz have failed to cover the spread in their last 5 games facing the Warriors in Golden State.
This season the Jazz are 8-5 on the road.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors rank 1st in the league in points per game and 18th in opponents’ points per game.
The Warriors totally dominated the Blazers in their last game winning by 45 points and they shot 58.6% from the floor and held Portland to 39.5%. Golden State outscored the Blazers by 18 points in the first quarter and they went into the half with a 25-point lead.
Kevin Durant had a big game against the Blazers going for 35 points and the other 2 of the new Big 3 in Steph Curry and Klay Thomson combined for 35 points.
All 3 had a FG% of over 50% and while the Jazz will not keep them from scoring they have to keep them from shooting a solid FG%.
This is only the 2nd meeting of these 2 teams this season.
The Warriors are in their house in this game and in the last 7 games between these teams the home team has covered the spread 6 times.
The Warriors are 11-2 at home this season.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
The Warriors had failed to cover in 5 straight games before doing so in their last game in the blowout win over the Blazers.
