Tonight is the big test for this team. Coming off of the emotions of a last second win against the Cavaliers, the stage is set for a let down.
The Bucks are not a very good team, but their rookie Brandon Jennings is capable of scoring big. Andrew Bogut has also played well against the Jazz in the last few years and could cause some problems in the paint.
If the Jazz hadn’t of given up so many games to bad teams, I would say that this should be an easy win for the Jazz. However, I believe that if they don’t play hard and let up on their defense, the Bucks are capable of leaving Salt Lake with a win.
|Bucks||Key Team Stats||Jazz|
|23.3||Fouls Per Game||22.1|
There is also the small question of whether or not Deron Williams or Andre Kirilenko are going to play. I would say that it is almost better for the team if Deron doesn’t play because I would bet the team plays harder with Deron out.
I hope that AK plays just because he has played great lately. He deserves more minutes and it would be a shame if he couldn’t go tonight. However, if I had to choose I would rather AK play on Sunday against the Nuggets and be at full strength then try and struggle through tonight’s game at home.
The way the Jazz have been playing, I find it hard to bet against them. As far as my prediction for tonight – I will say the Jazz win it by 14. JB
