Utah Jazz at Golden State Warriors Preview
The Utah Jazz are off to a nice start and seem to be integrating their new pieces in well, while the Golden State Warriors continue to struggle with their top players out. The Warriors are looking to buck that trend tonight as they welcome the visiting Jazz into the brand new Chase Center.
Time: 10:30 PM ET
Arena: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
Channel: ATTSN-RM, NBCSBA
Jazz: Dante Exum, Emmanuel Mudiay, Ed Davis (O)
Warriors: Kevon Looney, Omari Spellman, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Jacob Evans (O)
Utah Jazz Starting Lineup
The Jazz showed the NBA just how good they can be in a big win over the Milwaukee Bucks 103-100. New Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic came up clutch in the game with 33 points and he hit the game-winner in the waning seconds.
“The whole team knew that Bojan wanted the ball,” Snyder told reporters afterward. “If you have players who aren’t afraid of the moment, who can make reads and make decisions and want the ball, that’s the best thing in the world.”
Mike Conley added 20 points and Donovan Mitchell had 19 for the Jazz. While Rudy Gobert didn’t reach double figures in scoring with eight points he also brough down 17 rebounds.
Golden State Warriors Starting Lineup
The Warriors have lost their last three games and are 2-8 on the season after their recent 114-108 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Head coach Steve Kerr noted that his team while dealing with several injuries, should still be winning more games.
“We’re a young team that is learning,” Kerr told reporters. “But I’m not happy with where we are, nor should our players be. We should not just accept our fate. We shouldn’t feel sorry for ourselves and say, ‘Well, we have all these injuries.’ Or, ‘We’re playing two-way guys’ and ‘going for the lottery’ and all this (stuff). We should win some games.”
Key Player Matchups
Mike Conley vs. D’Angelo Russell
Russell put up 30 points against the Thunder and the Warriors will continue to look to him to lead them. Conley seems to be finding his groove and his place in Utah’s offense.
Bojan Bogdanovic vs. Eric Paschall/Draymond Green
Bojan has blended with Utah seamlessly. Paschall has been one of the young standouts for the Warriors while they deal with injuries.
