Utah Jazz vs Brooklyn by Marci

Utah-Jazz
VS
Brooklyn
Another single from me from NBA. 2nd best defending team in the elague plays against one of weakest teams in the league which became even weaker last week when they bought out contract from 7 time all star Joe Johnson who will now be joining Miami Heat. Utah is currently 9th in West and this win here would tie them with Houston for 8th place (final spot for playoffs) and Brooklyn is 2nd worst in East with no chance to get better.

 

Now without Johnson they will have to rely most and only on their star center Brook Lopez who is averaging around 20 points per game and that is one of biggest reasons why I play under on such high stake. Brook Lopez is great tall center and is overall consistent with few bad games, but problem for him and Brooklyn in this game is that they are playing against best team in protecting paint, even better centers than Brook was stopped under 15 and 20, in last 10 games when Gobert and Favors were playing they conceded little less than 33 points (17 from centers (that is all centers who plays not only starting).

 

That means that they will have to make a lot of 3 pointers and that really isnt an option for this Brooklyn without Jack and Johnson, they have 34,5 3point percentage (6-17 per game) and that was with Johnson who was actually their best shooter. Now instead of him is Bojan Bogdanovic who wasa best scorer in win last game against injury riddled weakest team in the league Phoenix Suns with 24 points (20 in first half), but he is very inconsistent and often after breakout game with 15+ points he goes for 0.

 

They are now left on Larkin, Sloan, Bogdanovic (Babo), Young and Lopez and Ellington can shoot from bench (sometimes). Yo8ung is great , but as he gets older he focuses more on defese so he had against Phoenix 7 steals and 3 blocks so at the end they will have to go on Brook against best paint defenders and with Utah playing slow tempo games like San Antonio SPurs I just simply dont see them scoring 93 or more points.

 

I played and on smaller stake and on Brooklyn to score less than 86.5 on William Hill, we for sure wont see this Brooklyn scoring over 100 excpet against opponents like Sacramento, Minnesotta, Houston, Phoenix and Lakers who arent capable of playing defense
