I'm still not convinced that a 21-21 team in the East is that big of a monster this season. Sure, when healthy, and playing at a high level, the Wizards are more than capable. Heck, they just beat the Phoenix Suns last night. But on the second night of a back to back, playing on the road up in Utah, with Derek Favors back -- it's hard not to imagine a Jazz win tonight over the #5 team in the East. We're the #15 team in the West.

.

Starters:

John Wall is great, and Bradley Beal is on the rise. Trevor Ariza, Nene, and Marcin Gortat can all D-up guys very well. We're going with Trey Burke, Gordan Hayward, Richard Jefferson, Marvin Williams, and Derrick Favors. On paper we should work better together, but all of their guys are not to be trifle with. Wall can beat teams on his own.


Bench:

Trevor Booker, Jan Vesely, Garrett Temple, and Kevin Seraphin are worse versions of Alec Burks, Jeremy Evans, Diante Garrett, and Enes Kanter.

.

Coaches:

Randy Whittman (168-312) vs. Tyrone Corbin (101-118). We have the better coach tonight!

.

Prediction:

It's very likely that the Jazz lose, despite being healthier, playing at home, and playing a team on the second night of a back to back.

.

GO JAZZ GO!
