The Golden State Warriors have been pretty inconsistent this season. After two superb victories against the Lakers and the Spurs, the Dubs had a disappointing loss to the Knicks. Coach Steve Kerr will be desperate for the team to step up and find some much needed consistency.
The Utah Jazz, on the other hand, turned it around in some style. After two successive losses, the Jazz won seven games in a row and now have 11 wins in the regular season.
The Warriors face off against the Jazz 9:00 PM EST. Take a look at the injury updates and predictions for the same.
The Utah Jazz have been in a tremendous form with seven wins in a row. They now have the third best record in the Western Conference. With a healthy roster, the Jazz look unstoppable, with young star Donovan Mitchell leading the scoring for the team.
Players like Mike Conley and Jordan Clarkson have also chipped in on the offense, while Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors have taken control in the defensive end.
The Jazz have some minor injury issues. Forwards Juwan Morgan and Jarrell Brantley have been sidelined due to the health and safety protocols and personal reasons. Rookie Elijah Hughes is also out with an ankle injury. Their backup center, Derrick Favors, is doubtful as he recovers from a knee injury.
The Jazz will be determined to continue their winning form off against a formidable Warriors team.

The Warriors are coming off of an embarrassing loss against the New York Knicks. Although their main man Steph Curry scored 30 points, the other stars fell flat against the Knicks.
Coach Steve Kerr will be disappointed to see the other players drop off against the Knicks in such a manner. This is not the first time they the Dubs have been inconsistent. They haven’t won more than two games in a row.
For the next game against the Jazz, the Warriors will be missing some players due to injuries. Klay Thompson is out for the season with an Achilles’ injury. Alen Samilagic won’t be playing against the Jazz as he recovers from a torn meniscus. Marquese Chriss is also out with a lower leg injury and is out for the game.
The Warriors face an in-form side in the Jazz. It will take an all-round performance from the Dubs to trump the Jazz.

The Jazz have had an amazing run of late and have had some victories against teams like the Bucks and the Nuggets. Given the form they are in, they might be too much to handle for Steph Curry and the Warriors.
