Washington and Utah are in the midst of a battle for the playoffs in their respective conferences.
Both teams have battled with the lower seeds and continue to bounce in and out of playoff positioning.
Utah currently sits in 9th in the West and Washington sits in 10th in the East.
The Wizards sit in 10th place in the East and look to close the gap on that 8th seed as they are just 2.5 games out.
Washington has stumbled however, losing 3 straight games, which is something they simply cannot afford to do. With the playoff race on and the Wizards now fallen behind even more, extended losing streaks with just a month to go in the season can really push a team out of a race.
Washington opened their current 3 game road trip as they fell to Portland on Tuesday to start things off. The Wizards have gone just 14-16 SU on the road this season and concede over 105 points per game, which has been the major problem for them.
Getting stops, especially down the stretch of games, which could end up being the key in this one.
The Jazz jumped Houston and looked like they were going to take off and stay in playoff positioning in the West.
However since then, things have fallen off a bit. The Jazz now trail by 3 full games as they sit in 9th place. Back to back losses have really set them back and allowing that to snowball into a losing streak is a must avoid here.
Especially with this one being at home. Utah has gone 19-13 SU at home and that’s been thanks to their stellar defensive effort. The Jazz have allowed only 94 points per home game, as they really slow the pace down and use a lot of pressure to force turnovers.
Utah could add a little more depth with SG Rodney Hood set to return after missing the game against Golden State.
