The Golden State Warriors, coming off an easy blowout win over the LA Clippers, go on the road tonight to take on the Utah Jazz who are coming off a close home win over the Suns.
The Jazz are finding ways to continue reeling off wins and you really have to wonder how this team is going to do once they have the added nightly production of George Hill back in the lineup on a nightly basis. The Jazz are a premium defensive team but even they have to worry when going up against a team like the Warriors.
The Warriors pretty much just settled that they are far and away the best team in the Western Conference by destroying the Clippers last night at the Staples Center. The Warriors are putting up some insanely elite offensive numbers and at this point in the season are averaging an insane 120 points per game. The Warriors could be putting in a little more work on the defensive end but Curry and company are looking so adept at picking off every suspect pass that squaring up against opponents is almost unnecessary.
Take the Warriors to get the win and cover in this one as while I have a lot of respect for what the Jazz are doing right now I don’t think they have what it takes to win without Hill healthy.
