Warriors vs. Jazz Pick

NBA Predictions: Is under going to hit for Warriors at Jazz? 4/10/18

The Utah Jazz are second in the NBA in defensive efficiency, while the Golden State Warriors aren't too shabby either on defense as they rank 10th. Will a pair of strong defensive teams lead to the under hitting when they meet tonight in Utah?

Utah one of NBA's best stories

The Jazz can get overlooked sometimes because they don't play in one of the NBA's bigger markets, but remember back in October when everyone figured this was surely not a playoff team and perhaps a potential draft lottery team? They had just lost their biggest star in Gordon Heyward in free agency and let George Hill get away as well. Additionally, a lot was going to be counted on from first round draft pick Donovan Mitchell.

Instead, Utah is firmly in the Western Conference Playoffs after clinching last week as they have continually proven prognosticators wrong. The Jazz are currently holding onto home-court advantage with the fourth seed and have two games remaining, but must keep winning with three other teams breathing down their neck.

Durant, Warriors not in top form 

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr called out his team a few games ago after a 126-106 blowout loss at the Pacers. That only led to a 126-120 home defeat to the Pelicans the next game. The Warriors technically righted the ship last game via a 117-110 victory at the Suns, but beating NBA-worst Phoenix without some of its top players is hardly an accomplishment. Without point guard Steph Curry for probably the entirety of the first round of the playoffs, Golden State will have to dig deep and heep their head coach's advice that effort leads to results.
