Stephen Curry and the rest of the Golden State Warriors watched the Cleveland Cavaliers dispatch the Toronto Raptors on Sunday to become the first NBA team to start 8-0 in the playoffs for two consecutive years. The Dubs have an opportunity to win eight in a row themselves with Game 4 of their conference semifinal series staged for Monday in Salt Lake City. Sportsbooks opened the Jazz as 8.5-point home underdogs with a total of 206.5.
– Shark Bites
- The total has gone OVER in four of the Warriors’ last five games on the road.
- The Jazz are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games at home.
- The Warriors are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games against the Jazz.
The Jazz led by as many as nine points in the third quarter of Game 3 on Saturday and held Curry and Klay Thompson to a combined 7-for-29 from the floor but still lost 102-91. All-star small forward Gordon Hayward did everything he could by contributing 29 points and six assists but his teammates struggled to 39 percent shooting from the field.
Jazz starting point guard and second-leading scorer George Hill sat out the last two games with a toe injury and remains questionable for Game 4 as of this writing.
It’s a known fact, but it’s worth stating again: no NBA team has ever recovered from a 3-0 series deficit in a best-of-seven series. I would say stranger things have happened and Utah has a chance, but that might even be a stretch. The Warriors are unstoppable right now, and anything other than an NBA championship would be a disappointment in Oakland.
The Dubs have been a fantastic bet in one regard of late: cashing tickets on the road. In the Warriors’ last eight away from home, they’re 8-0 SU and ATS.
