This is the second last game of the 2016-2017 Utah Jazz season. They are on the road facing the defending Western Conference champs, the Golden State Warriors. This game starts after my bed time.

Game Preview | nothing else | Golden State Of Mind

Team Breakdown:

The Jazz are playing their third game in four nights, and look to at least lean on the fact that if the lost tonight a) they are still in the playoffs, b) they can't be worse than 5th, and c) they'll still finish the season 21-20 on the road. Not bad. The Warriors suck, so I'm not even going to talk about them.

Don Nelson is a charlatan and a coward. And all of his teams were too.
