Utah vs. New York
Wednesday 01/06 07:35 PM Eastern
1 unit on Utah -6.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
Utah is playing a back-to-back, but the Jazz didn't expend much energy last night as it was humiliated at Brooklyn, losing by 34 points. They were never in the game. New York is playing its first home game following a four-game trip that ended Monday with a victory at Atlanta. The Jazz had won three of four before Tuesday's debacle, and I'm looking for them to bounce back tonight as NBA teams usually do after being embarrassed. Utah shot only 38.8 percent and allowed the Nets a .559 field goal percentage. The Jazz will clamp down defensively tonight and come closer to its season averages of .451 shooting percentage overall, and .373 from 3-point range. Play the Jazz.
