TV: CSN Bay Area | Radio: KNBR 680

Tip Off: 6pm

Blog Buddy: SLC Dunk

Okay I'll make this simple. The Warriors are not a good team. The Jazz are a very good team. But jump because we'll give you some of the good news thus far this season!

The Good News

  • The Warriors are the 7th best team in the entire association from downtown at 38.5% 3pt.
  • The Dubs lead the league in steals per game at 9.5.
  • Monta Ellis is the 6th leading scorer in the league at 24.4ppg
  • Stephen Curry is the 4th best free throw shooter at 90.9% FT.
  • There is ZERO reason to think that the Warriors screwed up by giving up on Anthony Randolph who the media bizarrely was over infatuated with and used as a pawn in their constant silly agenda against coaching legend Don Nelson.
  • Dorell Wright is top 5 in the league with 2.4 made treys nightly.
  • Despite struggling with a very unfortunate elbow injury David Lee is 6th in the league with 4.0 offensive rebounds per game.

Predictions

  • The Utah Jazz don't stress the least bit about the Warriors' "Good News".
  • Deron Williams goes off for a triple double.
  • Monta gets 20 points.
  • Ekpe Udoh gets more than 3 minutes tonight and gets more than 2 points. Udoh is the #1 reason for Warriors fans to watch this game.
  • David Lee gets 20-10 for only the second time this year.
  • Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap combine for 40-20.
  • Warriors by 1.
