While they’ve struggled this season, the Golden State Warriors have been dominant at home and they’ll be looking for another win on Friday night when the Utah Jazz come to town.
The Warriors, currently 8-1 at home this season, have compensated for their street struggles on their home ground, outperforming their opponents by averaging about 11.0 points per game.
Stephen Curry has posted MVP-like numbers so far this season, Klay Thompson is starting to find his shot and Andrew Wiggins continues to impress on the wing, but the Warriors haven’t looked as confident on defense this season, and their second unit is still a work in progress.
Winning hasn’t come easy for them, and another won’t come easily against the Utah Jazz, who have been one of the biggest upsets of the year.
With Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and Bojan Bogdanovic this past offseason, it looked like the Jazz were about to embark on a rebuild, but Jordan Clarkson, Lauri Markkanen and the rest of this team have really improved and looked like a solid one Team going into the playoffs early.
However, they have lost five of their last seven games, including three of their last four away, after starting the season 10-3. Now 12-8, an away win against the Warriors would do wonders for the Jazz.
Can Utah pull off a big away win or will Golden State show their brilliance again at home against a younger, less experienced team?
Here’s how to watch Friday night’s game with game times and TV, lineups, bios and other important details.
