NBA Wednesday Night Action: Jazz vs. WarriorsPublished December 23, 2015 by Sol FH
Jazz vs Warriors live at 03:30 GMT: Can the Jazz win three straight for the first time this season? It will take a miracle.
The Utah Jazz have not won three games straight this season since April 1, and that may remain the case, as they travel to California to face the league leading Golden State Warriors tonight. The Warriors may have lost its first game of the season, but no one has beat them at home in the last 30 games straight, and they are an amazing 49 out of 50 in Oakland.
Utah beat the Nuggets and the Suns in back to back games, which was the fifth time this year that they have won two-straight, but facing Steph Curry and the blazing Golden State Warriors is an entirely different game, and odds are that the Jazz will go home with yet another road loss. Utah is in 8th place in the Western Conference with a record of 12-14. They face the defending NBA Champions coming off a big win against the Bucks, the same team that handed them their only loss this season. The Warriors will be looking at tonight’s game as a training scenario for their massive Christmas match-up against the Cavaliers for the first time since beating them in the NBA Finals last year.
The last time these teams face one another was on November 30 in which Curry lead a fierce Warriors’ comeback in the fourth quarter to victory 106-103 in Salt Lake City. Curry scored 10 points in the final six minutes of the game in true MVP style.
Utah’s defense has been like a wall over the last two games, holding both Denver and Phoenix to 39.2% shooting and 25% on 3’s. Speaking about his team’s defensive success, Head Coach Quin Snyder related, “When we're precise and committed on defense, usually good things happen the rest of the game. Usually we take care of the ball and do things like that."
