Utah Jazz vs GS Warriors by Rahul

The Warriors are averaging over 109 points per game over the course of the season, which is the highest in the NBA. They have now had 6 straight games with 110 points+ including against good defensive teams like Oklahoma, Indiana, Toronto and also including some poorer teams like Cleveland, Minnesota and Philadelphia in this run. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson have been the particular scorers for the Warriors averaging 45 points between the 2 of them; and when you watch the games, they come at a very easy pace. Additionally, they have had some great contributions from a number of players including Speights, Barnes, Green, Iguadola, Lee and now the returning Andrew Bogut.
The Jazz have been a pretty average team; but have only won 6 games at home so far and are staring at a 3rd straight loss after losing to the Thunder and the Rockets in their last 2 games. Despite their losses they have slowly learnt to keep games close with a +/- differential of only -3 points. However, their scoring ability keeps it only to 96 points per game with only Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors the scorers in double digits for them. In the previous meeting between the 2 sides, the Warriors had beaten them by 13 points; and look confident for another win tonight.
I am backing the Warriors to cover on a lower spread especially with Miami game taking place at home tomorrow.
