Warriors vs. Jazz Game Info

  • Date: Wednesday, December 28, 2022
  • Time: 10:00 PM ET
  • Venue: Chase Center -- San Francisco, California
  • Coverage: NBCS-BA and SportsNet RM

The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Wednesday with eight more games, including a battle between the Utah Jazz and Golden State Warriors. The Jazz rank ninth in the Western Conference with an 19-17 record, while the Warriors check in 10th with a 17-18 record. This one could go either way.

Utah is coming off a disappointing 126-122 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday that puts the team in danger of falling closer down to the .500 mark. Meanwhile, Golden State beat the Charlotte Hornets, 110-105, on Tuesday for its third in in its last five games. Which team will win tonight?

Warriors vs. Jazz Prediction & Pick

Utah is all gas and no brakes this season. The Jazz rank fifth in offensive efficiency and are averaging 117.2 points per game (No. 4 in NBA). However, they rank 25th in defensive efficiency and are giving up 116.2 points per game (No. 24 in NBA). Facing an improving Golden State crew will be a tough task.

Don't look now, but the Warriors have allowed an average of just 109.5 points per home game this season (No. 10 in NBA). Their ability to feed off the home crowd and contest one shot after another will play a key role in tonight's game. There's a reason Golden State has posted a 14-2 home record.

Utah has also won just one of its last eight road games, so I'll fade the Jazz on Wednesday night.

Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 121 | Jazz: 115

Warriors vs. Jazz Best Bet

Both of these teams play at a top-five pace in the league and average over 116.0 points per game, which means this is a smash spot for the over. It's worth noting that the total has hit the over in four of Utah's last six games as well as in six of Golden State's last eight games. There's a history here, too.

A history that includes the over cashing in 10 of the last 13 games between the Jazz and Warriors. These teams have already met twice this season as the scores for those games were 124-123 and 129-118. Even without Steph Curry healthy, this game features more than enough capable scorers.

Bet: Over 232 Points (-110)
