The Utah Jazz looking to go 5-0 before there fist big road trip of the year. If the Jazz win tonight Jerry Sloan will be the first Coach to win 1000 games with one team. The Jazz will also start of 5-0 for the first time since 2000. The Jazz aren't scoring as many points as they did last year at an average of 103 but there defense is only giving up 85.5 points a game. A lot of that stat is due to the teams we have played, but also I believe as a team they are committed to playing strong defense and not fouling as much.
Ak might not play tonight it looks like it will be a game-time decision. He has the flu I think he caught it at the Fleur Di Lis along with other things.
I don't see any combination of scenarios for Seattle to win this game. The Jazz are too good,deep and smart to lose this game.
Spread-- Jazz -11 seems about right because AK might not play.
Match-up of the night --- Durrant Vs. Brewer I think they will end up with around the same point total 15-18, but Durrant will lead in all other stats except for steals.
Stat of the night-- The Sonics haven't scored more than 90 points in any game this season.
Our Prediction---Jazz 103-Sonics 84. Six players in double figures Boozer, Brewer, Korver, Okur,Knight and Millsap. Boozer/Knight get double doubles.
