The Wizards travel to Atlanta looking to push towards the 7th vs 8th play-in bracket in the East.
Meanwhile the Hawks are looking nervously over their shoulder, with their position in the top six looking vulnerable.
Extraordinarily, the bookies are yet to catch onto the Wizards’ destructive form, Russ and Beale have carried Washington to 13 victories across their last 16 games, a majority of which they were considered underdogs.
The three losses the Wizards suffered across the trip were either by one point or in over time!
Saying that, Washington have been priced as 7-point outsiders here, a point spread which had me questioning my eye-sight!
The Dubs welcome the Jazz to the Bay Area as both sides look to consolidate their respective positions in the Western conferences seedings.
Following a short lull in form, Utah have found their feet again, going 7-3 across their last ten games, while currently enjoying a run of five straight victories.
Meanwhile, Golden State are 6-4 across the same trip, though the new-look outfit has enjoyed a favourable schedule.
As well as Curry is shooting the ball at the minute, he’s coming up against a well oiled defensive unit with multiple attacking assists of their own.
The bookies are riding the Steph Curry narrative at the moment, and as enjoyable as the Dubs have been to watch I just can’t see them getting anywhere near the Western Conference leaders here.
