Kelly Oubre Jr. was forced out with a wrist injury in his last game, while Jordan Poole and Juan Toscano-Anderson continued their impressive form off the bench.
Meanwhile, James Wiseman, Eric Paschall, Damian Lee and Klay Thompson are unavailable for this game.
Key Player – Stephen Curry
Stephen Curry has been in indomitable recent form, averaging 38 points in his last six appearances.
He is now leading the league in points per game and has also shown an increase in the number of dimes per outing. Curry is shooting at over 45% from the 3-point zone as he looks set to lead his team to a playoff seed.
The Utah Jazz will be a huge test, so a big Curry performance could be the need of the hour for the Golden State Warriors.

Point Guard – Steph Curry l Shooting Guard – Kent Bazemore l Small Forward – Andrew Wiggins l Power Forward – Draymond Green l Center – Kevon Looney.
Jazz vs Warriors Prediction
The Utah Jazz have looked unstoppable in recent games despite missing their two most prolific scorers, Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell. Rudy Gobert has impressed as he is emerging as a contender for the Defensive Player of the Year award.
On the other hand, the Golden State Warriors’ two stars Draymond Green and Stephen Curry, have looked at their best in recent games. The two have good understanding, and the latter will look to continue his prolific form.
However, the Utah Jazz are the clear favorites to win this matchup.
