Utah Jazz @ Golden State Warriors Tips


The best team in the NBA this season - the Utah Jazz - takes on Western Conference rivals the Golden State Warriors in a regular season game on Tuesday, May 11. Will be the third time these two teams played each other in 2021, with the score at one win each. Utah won their first meeting in January by 127-108, but Golden State were victorious in March by 131-119. 

Utah have dominated the Western Conference all season, and they also top the overall NBA League, which assesses teams from both the Western and Eastern Conferences. The Phoenix Suns - the team currently second in both the Western Conference and NBA League - briefly eclipsed Utah at the top of both tables for one week before the Jazz regained top-spot. Since then Utah have gone on a five-match winning streak, while Phoenix have lost two of their last three.

Golden State are one of the most illustrious names in NBA history with six championships. They have also been the most consistent team of the past decade, winning five Western Conferences in the past seven seasons since 2015, and going on to win three NBA Championships. This season they should make the NBA playoffs, although technically they could still be caught by the New Orleans Pelicans, and need one more win to guarantee their playoff spot. 

I’m backing the Golden State Warriors to get that final win with a victory over the Utah Jazz on Tuesday. Powered on by the incredible points scoring skills of Steph Curry, I’m backing Golden State to win this match by less than 10 points.

  • Jazz top of Western Conference
  • Jazz 50-18 this season 
  • Warriors 8th in Western Conference
  • Warriors 35-33 this season

Head to Head


The Utah Jazz and the Golden State Warriors have played each other 190 times in regular-season NBA games. Utah currently lead that head-to-head by 113 wins to 77. In their nine most recent matches over the past three seasons, the Jazz lead 6-3. These teams have played twice in 2021, with the score at one win each. In their most recent meeting in March, Golden State were victorious by 131-119. 

Utah Jazz Form


The Utah Jazz have regained their best form just when they needed it. After going through their most erratic phase of the season, losing games they would’ve normally have won, Utah have now won five consecutive matches, most recently on Sunday, when they defeated the Houston Rockets 124-116.

Outstanding for Utah during this run has been there 6’8” 32-year-old Croatian star Bojan Bogdanovic. Although currently only third among Utah’s main points scorers behind Donovan Mitchell and Jordan Clarkson, Bogdanovic has had the highest PPG in six of their last nine matches, including scoring 48 points in Saturday’s victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Golden State Warriors Form


While the Golden State Warriors haven’t had the most consistent of seasons, they have managed to win slightly more than they have lost in 2021, and are currently 35-33, with four games left to play. Those games are against the Utah Jazz, the Phoenix Suns, the New Orleans Pelicans and the Memphis Grizzlies, hardly the easiest of run-ins. However, they need just one more victory to guarantee their safety. 

The man synonymous with the success of the Golden State Warriors over the past decade is Steph Curry, and once again he is having a fantastic season, currently topping the PPG stats for Golden State with 31.9. Curry has clearly raised his game over the last couple of weeks to guarantee his team’s progression to the playoffs, and in his last six matches, Curry has scored 37, 30, 41, 37, 34 and most recently 49 points against the Oklahoma City Thunder who the Warriors defeated 136-97 on Sunday.

Verdict

Despite the Utah Jazz being the clear favourites to win this game, I’m backing the Golden State Warriors to pull off an upset and defeat Utah in a close, hard-fought battle, ending the Jazz’s current five match winning streak.
 
There are two factors to consider here - the first is the incredible form of Steph Curry, who just scored a stunning 49 points against Oklahoma City on Sunday. To do that at this stage of the season is incredible, and shows Curry’s commitment to his team.

The second factor leads off the first - Golden State need just one more win to guarantee their place in the playoffs, and you can bet your bottom dollar that Steph Curry won’t rest until his team have got that win. The Warriors will beat the Jazz by less than 10 points in a hard-fought, high-scoring matchup that will feature at least 230 points.
