Utah Jazz (24-52) at Golden State Warriors (47-29)
X-Factor - Draymond Green: D.G.'s having one helluva season! Green had a double-double against the Kings on Friday night scoring 10 points with 10 rebounds (not to mention a pair of assists, steals and blocks) starting for the Dubs. We're gonna need that fire going into the game tonight.
Secret Weapon - Marreese Speights: Actually, it's no secret. Speights has been contributing some great numbers alongside Jermaine O'Neal during Lee & Bogut's absence. He recorded a nice double double as well off the bench securing Friday nights win.
No mistakes allowed: At 24-52, sadly the Jazz have the worst record in the Western Conference. It's plain and simple folks... run the floor, maintain a strong lead and play some great defense. In no way should this be a close one. With Trey Burke & Derrick Favors putting in some great numbers, we need to contain these guys and not get comfortable.
Magic number: 4. No pressure, the western conference standings are a close one. Take in an "easy" win tonight (knock on wood, nothings ever easy at the Roaracle!) we can make a push for the 5th spot and clinch soon enough.
Predictions (Note: some might be blown out of proportion, lol)
Career night for Stephen Curry. Triple double night, I got dibs he'll pull it off 3 minutes into the third quarter! (place your bets!)
Another great night from Harrison Barnes. Jumpers, solid defense & a monstrous dunk.
Draymond, Mareese & Jermaine: Look out Utah, they're all going to have great nights.
The "Splash Brothers Night" event isn't until Thursday at the Roaracle. The pre-game event may start early if these guys hit it off at the 3-point line... Splash!
Warriors win by 14. My biggest prediction number, good luck fellas! Keep the momentum going our way. "Dubs All Day."
