About the Jazz » They have won four straight at home (Houston, Miami, Detroit, Minnesota). … G Earl Watson (ankle) won’t play. … C Al Jefferson will miss weekend games against the Warriors and Lakers after the death of his grandmother. … F Gordon Hayward and C Enes Kanter are their only players to appear in all 43 games.
About the Warriors » They are 11-13 against Western Conference opponents and 8-11 on the road. … They are 2-8 in their past 10 games in Utah. … They are 6-4 on the second night of back-to-back games. … G Stephen Curry averages 14.7 points per game but he is questionable (ankle).
The Warriors keep the pick if they finish with one of the worst seven records in the league and, without Ellis or Bogut, that’s a distinct possibility.
