NBA FREE PICK: Take the Utah Jazz. According to the latest NBA trends, the Jazz are 4-0 against the spread in their last 4 home games and 5-2 against the spread the last 7 Saturday games. The Warriors have a new backcourt in Nate Robinson and Klay Thompson thanks to the trade of Monta Ellis to Milwaukee and an injury to Stephen Curry. They may also get newly-acquired Richard Jefferson for this game but it doesn’t matter. The Warriors are basically tanking this season for a better pick. Utah should abuse the Warriors down low by going to Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap. Utah is also a different team at home and the Warriors should be fatigued thanks to a short bench.
