This first round game of the seven game series see the Jazz traveling to Oakland to face the Warriors.
The season series was won by the Warriors 2-1, with an average final score of 103-92. The Warriors had won 7 in a row before losing on April 10th.
Utah comes into this series as severe underdog against the buzzsaw Golden State Warriors. Gordon Hayward stepped up big time in round 1 and will look to continue his stellar play in the second round.
Hayward averaged over 27 points and 8 rebounds against the Clippers, a series I expected him to struggle in due to his poor numbers in the regular season.
Don’t expect Hayward to do much against the Warriors long defenders in game 1.
George Hill looked completely outmatched against Chris Paul in the first round. Paul almost averaged a double double the entire series and Steph Curry is always in the MVP discussion.
If Hill can keep Curry under 25 points in any game during the series I will be shocked.
Rudy Gobert has a height advantage against Draymond Green but don’t expect a double double from him in game 1.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors made easy work of the Trailblazers in the first round. They put up a 45 point first quarter in the final game of the series and to expect the offense to slow down would be stupid.
Steph Curry finished the series with 34 and 37 point games, and I expect him to get 30 in game 1 against the Jazz backcourt.
Kevin Durant should dominate his matchup against Gordon Hayward, and his efficient shooting should lead to at least 25 points in game 1.
Klay Thompson is always an option to have a game changing hot streak, and facing Rodney Hood and Joe Johnson on the wing should make it an easy night for the sharpshooter.
