Golden State @ Utah
Current Records: Golden State 13-12; Utah 14-12
This Wednesday, the Golden State Warriors are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 116.12 points per game. They will take on the Utah Jazz at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday at Vivint Arena. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, the Warriors nows face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.
Golden State came up short against the Indiana Pacers on Monday, falling 112-104. What made the defeat an especially bitter pill for Golden State to swallow was that they had been favored by 12 points coming into the contest. Point guard Stephen Curry wasn’t much of a difference maker for Golden State; Chef Curry played for 37 minutes with 3-for-17 shooting.
Meanwhile, Utah was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 116-111 to the Portland Trail Blazers. Despite the loss, Utah had strong showings from center Jarred Vanderbilt, who had 16 points along with seven rebounds, and small forward Lauri Markkanen, who had 21 points in addition to six boards.
Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a win. The teams are out to make things right after dropping matches they were expected to win, so stay tuned to see which team bounces back.
