The Utah Jazz have been the class of the Western Conference this year, which nobody saw coming, but they are getting the job done with a mix of skill and fundamentals and it now will be quite interesting to see just how far this team can go.
Utah is not only 29-10, but they are also 25 and 13 against the number which means they are playing great, but also means they have been significantly undervalued in terms of the betting market. Donovan Mitchell remains an outstanding player coming off of his absurd performances last year in the bubble averaging close to 25 points per game on excellent efficiency statistics.
The one guy who has made a big difference this year for the Jazz is Rudy Gobert, as he is starting to really earn that giant contract he got, as he has taken his game to a new level elevating this team in the process. Their last game was especially impressive, as they picked up a comfortable enough victory over the Boston Celtics who are no joke here in 2021.
The Jazz need that win against Boston as well, as they had only picked up victories in 2 of their last 5 games, and the last thing this team wants is to lose it’s seeding after working so hard to get to the top of the standings.
The Washington Wizards have been quite poor this year, but they have been especially bad as of late only picking up 1 win in their last 7 contest. When you start looking at the stats it makes sense how they could lose so many games so convincingly as well, with the Wizards allowing over 120 points per game and rely far too much on Bradley Beal to carry this team to every win with outrageous shooting performances.
They have had a brutal strength of schedule though, with 2 games against the Bucks recently and unfortunately things get no easier here as the Jazz play a fundamentally sound overall game which is the exact opposite of Washington.
The biggest problem for them here might be trying to defend and score on Rudy Gobert, as he has been extremely good this year and the Washington Wizards have been one of the worst teams in the league in terms of interior defense.
In terms of injuries the Wizards are relatively healthy for this time of the year, but they will still be without Thomas Bryant who was having a solid season and Ish Smith who can also make important contributions when on the court.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
The Washington Wizards can hang with plenty of teams this year, but I do not think the Jazz are one of them, as they present so many matchup problems like the Rudy Gobert example. The Jazz will be highly motivated to continue rolling, as it would be huge for the franchise to win the first seed in the West.
The Washington Wizards also have a game against Sacramento the previous night, so I feel like that game could take a lot out of them leaving them in a rough spot with a team like the Jazz the next day.
