It's just crazy to me that the Golden State Warriors are at the top of the Western Conference standings. I was never a Don Nelson fan, and some of my earliest Utah Jazz memories were of the team getting swept out of the playoffs by them in the first round. It's likely that I've held some sort of bias against them for years. STILL THO, it's just crazy that Golden State is doing well. They are on their way to make the playoffs for the third straight year in a row . . . something that last happened when Elvis Presley was still alive.

Anyway, they have a very exciting team this year led by Stephen Curry, child of former Utah Jazz guard Dell Curry. He's going to be a handful for everyone else on our team.

Starters:

No David Lee due to injury, so Draymond Green will be the guy pulling Enes Kanter out of the paint on defense.

Bench:

Andre Iguodala is coming off the bench and will be a tough cover as well. The advantage the Jazz have is in the paint. Of course, sometimes the ball only goes into the paint against the Warriors when the other team inbounds the ball -- those guys can shoot.

I think our guys can hang for a bit, but ultimately, GSW will be allowed to play their game. The Jazz are 102-64 against the Dubs in franchise history; but only 38-45 on the road. I'm excited to see what adjustments Quin Snyder makes during the game.

GO JAZZ GO!
