NBA Playoff Odds
Golden State -13.5
Total: 206.5 points
Golden State is looking to get back to the NBA Finals once again. The Utah Jazz are currently standing in the way and this could be a decent series if the Jazz can slow the Warriors down and find a way to somehow pick up a win in one of the opening two games in Golden State.
The Warriors swept the Blazers in the opening round where every game was high scoring. They've waited around a little while to open this series as the Jazz went seven games with the Clippers in games that were considerably lower scoring. Utah has to find a way to hit the glass for those rare chances when Golden State actually misses shots.
Having Keven Durant back for the Warriors is going to play a big role. When healthy they're obviously the best team in basketball and the Jazz will have a tough time keeping everyone under control. They are going to need a big game from Gordon Hayward, the best player for Utah.
