The basketball game can be a game full of surprises. Any team can win any night. If you’re good at shooting the ball from an arc, you stand a chance of being a threat in the NBA. Utah is currently seventh in the NBA in terms of three-point field goal percentage. The trio of Lauri Markkanen, Jordan Clarkson and Colin Sexton proved they could score plenty of points any night.
Great role players like Rudy Gay, Mike Conley and Jarred Vanderbilt don’t make life easier for the magicians in this game either. The good news for Washington is the fact that Kristops Porzingis is likely in this game. They will be leaning heavily on Kyle Kuzma as he recently had his best game of the season against the Dallas Mavericks. But Utah needs to find a way to stop these two guys with takeover skills.

The final result
Despite the Jazz’ hot start, they are still considered a very flawed team. They lack the presence of a color animal or anyone to intimidate you into attacking the basket. As a result, Utah is giving away the most points in the paint that year.
The wizards have to attack the color often and early in this game. Taking guys like Colin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson out of dribbling and attacking the basket will also get them into serious trouble. If the wizards play their cards right, this can be an easy win for them.
