The Utah Jazz should be one of the most confident teams in the Western Conference right now. The Jazz last beat Oklahoma City, to go up 3-1. Tonight, the Thunder have their backs against the wall, and all the pressure is on the shoulders of the big three. Look for this game to either make of break the Thunder’s season.
In game four, the Jazz were a team poised to beat the Thunder. Oklahoma City on the other hand, looked out of sync.
The Utah Jazz are one game away from advancing to the NBA Western Conference Semifinals. Utah destroyed the Thunder in game four. The Jazz played like a focused squad to end the the first half, and the energy was also strong in the second half.
The Jazz got a strong outing again from Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell had 33 points in the 17 point blowout win. The Jazz shot 45.1 percent from the floor and 35.3 percent from three point land in game four at home.
Defensively, the Jazz have owned the Thunder the last three games. Oklahoma City has scored no more than 102 points in those matchups. The Jazz led the NBA in points allowed this year for a reason.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder are on the ropes. The team that some thought would be a possible Western Conference Finals participant, is fighting to their season. Oklahoma City let their pride get in the way in game four. The Thunder (especially Russell Westbrook) allowed emotions to run a bit high.
Westbrook got into foul trouble early, and was never the same. He went 7 of 18 for 23 points. Carmelo Anthony looked worse. He was 5 of 18 from the floor and 0 for 6 from three point land. He finished with 11 points. If the Thunder get another showing from their stars like they did in game four, the Thunder might as well book vacation now.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
The Utah Jazz are looking like the much better team in this matchup. Look for another big game from Donovan Mitchell. He is proving to be one of the better players in the West. If The Jazz can play defense like they have the past three games, Utah will advance early.
The Thunder look like the Lakers did against the Pistons in the 2004 Finals. OKC has the names on the roster, but they just aren’t showing up in big moments. If the Thunder are unable to move the ball effeciently against the Jazz defense, this one will be over in five games.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Jazz +3.5
Take the Jazz to close out the series on the road. Oklahoma City is going to need a huge game from Russell Westbrook, but it won’t be enough.
