The Golden State Warriors will play their 78th game of the season tonight as they tipoff against the Utah Jazz. The game will be played at 5:30pm PT in San Francisco and can be watched on NBC Sports Bay Area and NBA League Pass.
The Warriors have lost 7 out of their last 8 games including Wednesday’s 107-103 loss to the Phoenix Suns. The Jazz have also struggled recently after going 1-5 in their last 6 games. Their latest matchup was a Thursday game against the Los Angeles Lakers in which they won by a score of 122-109. Golden State and Utah has played each other 3 times this season with the Warriors leading the series 2-1. Their last game was played on February 9th, 2022 and ended in a 111-85 Warriors loss.
Golden State played a close one against Phoenix on Wednesday night. It was a hard-fought game with the Warriors showing a competitiveness that has been lacking during the team’s recent struggles. Draymond Green’s defense and Jordan Poole’s offense were key in this one as the latter finished with 38 points, 7 assists, and 9 rebounds. Despite the loss, the big takeaway was that a motivated Warriors team is not too far behind the best team in the league this season, even without Stephen Curry.
Moving on to tonight’s game, Golden State gets a matchup against a Jazz team that holds the 5th seed in the Western Conference. This game could be a potential playoff preview as the Warriors continue to fall in the standings. They currently hold the 3rd seed and lead the 4th seeded Dallas Mavericks by only half a game. The Jazz are a solid team that executes at a high level, so look for the Warriors to carry their defensive intensity from the last game onto this one if they want to stop Utah’s offense.
It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
