This Friday will see an East vs. West showdown between two of the top teams in their respective conferences as the Washington Wizards travel to Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Jazz.
The Jazz took the last meeting between the two, winning 102-92 in Washington D.C. on February 26th.
The Wizards saw a four-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday. They fell 133-124 to the Clippers in Los Angeles. Washington is currently in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference.
The Jazz got their second win in a row with a dominant performance in Sacramento on Wednesday.
They defeated the Kings 112-82 in that game. The Jazz currently hold the 4th spot in the West.
Defense was nowhere to be found for either team in the Washington Wizards’ 133-124 loss in L.A. on Wednesday. The Wizards shot the ball well, especially John Wall who finished the losing effort with 41 points on 16 of 23 shooting.
The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the Wizards. They are only two games behind the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference and could still move up if they are able to get back on the winning track.
Washington has the 5th best scoring offense in the NBA, averaging 109.5 points per game. They are tied for 21st in rebounding with 43.1 and rank 6th in assists with 24 per contest.
Their defense continues to be the problem, and they allow an average of 107.2 points per game which ranks 22nd in the league.
John Wall leads the way for the Wizards with 23.4 points and 10.8 assists per game. Bradley Beal adds 23.1 points per contest. Markieff Morris and Otto Porter Jr. both contribute more than 13 points and 6.5 rebounds a night.
The Utah Jazz were the polar opposite of the Wizards in their 112-82 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday. It was the defense of the Jazz that was most impressive, although one has to take into account the fact that they were playing the Kings.
Utah was firmly in the 4th spot in the West, but the L.A. Clippers are only 1.5 games behind, and the Oklahoma City Thunder are only one game behind them.
The Jazz are 5.5 games behind the 3rd place Houston Rockets and unlikely to move up, but they need to stay on track to avoid losing their current positioning.
Averaging only 100.6 points per game, the Jazz rank only one spot out of dead last in scoring offense. They rank 17th in rebounding with 43.4 and 28th in assists with 19.8 per contest. However, they allow only 96.5 points per game which ranks 1st in the league in scoring defense.
Gordon Hayward leads the way for Utah with 21.8 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. George Hill contributes 16.9 points, and Rudy Gobert adds 13.8 points and 12.9 rebounds a night.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Both of these teams have been playing well as of late, and they both have a lot to play for. This will be an interesting battle of the high-powered Washington offense versus the stifling Utah defense.
The Wizards are probably the streakiest team in the league, so it is not a good sign that they lost their last game.
