Golden State Warriors
A few weeks ago, it looked like the Warriors would pose a serious threat to the Phoenix Suns’ reign in the Western Conference. Despite of the fact the Californians had Klay Thompson back in their squad, the Warriors did not get the number of wins they expected in their last 10 matches and they saw their rivals from Phoenix getting distant in the Western table.
The team lost matches against teams that currently do not occupy a high position at their divisions such as the Pelicans and the Pacers. On Jan. 6, the Warriors, who have one of the best attacks in the league, could not score more than 100 points during their 101-96 defeat in New Orleans. Additionally, in the following game, the Warriors were not able to score more than 100 points once again, this time playing at home against the Cavaliers.
Last Thursday, the team not only lost to one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference, but they also allowed their rivals, who do not have a very dangerous offensive system, to score 121 points on them. In addition to this bad statistic, the Warriors, who carry the title of having the best home record in the league, lost to the Pacers, a team with a poor road record, at home.
Stephen Curry, the Warriors’ point guard, and Draymond Green, the Warriors’ center, continues to lead the Warriors to the top of the Western Conference. Curry has one of the best points per game average in the league, 26.4 PPG, as well as one of the best three-pointers averages in the NBA. Green is very important to the team defensively, as he has the highest number of rebounds and blocks on the team.

The Jazz arrives at the Chase Center this Sunday followed by a negative sequence in their last five matches. The team lost matches against direct opponents for a higher position in the Western Conference standings such as the Los Angeles Lakers, and to teams who do not have any high expectations this season like the Houston Rockets.
Despite the fact as being ranked as one of the best offenses in the league, the Jazz comes from a sequence of games where this label did not come into practice. For example, in two out of their last five matches, the Jazz was not able to score at least 100 points against their opponents, with one of the games being at the Vivint Arena.
Another bad statistic for the Jazz is the fact their defense was not efficient as well, as they allowed teams considered as one of the best in the offense rankings to score a high number of points against them. For example, the Cleveland Cavaliers occupy a position in the top-10 worst offenses in the league, as they have a 107.5 PPG average. However, against the Jazz last week, the Cavaliers scored 111 points against their rivals and beat the squad from Utah at home.
Donovan Mitchell, Jazz’s shooting guard, and Rudy Gobert, Jazz’s center, continue to be the top players in their squad this season. The 25.5 PPG average gives the credential to Mitchell to have one of the best points per game average in the league and the best on his team. Defensively, Gobert has done an impressive job, as he has the highest rebounds per game average in the league, as well as the highest number of blocks in the squad.
Golden State Warriors vs Utah Jazz Odds and Prediction: Game Prediction
Warriors vs Jazz lean to be one of the best matches this Sunday and the fans can not wait to finally see two of the best teams in the league this season collide once again.
Despite the fact the Warriors come from a negative sequence of games, their squad is still better than the Jazz’ squad and this can be considered an advantage for them this weekend. Also, the Warriors have the best home record in the league and, even though they will face a dangerous team, their opponents will arrive at the Chase Center followed by a poor sequence of matches. So, the Warriors are favorites this Sunday and they will keep their chase to the Phoenix Suns alive.
