The Utah Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder meet Sunday in NBA action at the Paycom Center. The Utah Jazz look for a win after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Oklahoma City Thunder need a win after losing six of their last nine games.
The Utah Jazz are averaging 114.1 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 107.4 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 26.1 points and 5.3 assists, while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 17.7 points and 4.3 rebounds. Rudy Gobert is the third double-digit scorer and Jordan Clarkson is dishing 2.4 assists. The Utah Jazz are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46 rebounds per game.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 102.1 points on 42.2 percent shooting and allowing 108.7 points on 45 percent shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 23.6 points and 4.8 rebounds, while Luguentz Dort is averaging 17.2 points and 4.2 rebounds. Josh Giddey is the third double-digit scorer and Darius Bazley is grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 31.5 percent from beyond the arc and 76.1 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.1 rebounds per game.
The Jazz are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Thunder are 0-4-2 ATS in their last 6 home games and 22-5 ATS in their last 27 Sunday games. The over is 5-2 in Jazz last 7 road games. The over is 6-0-1 in Thunder last 7 overall. The Jazz are 6-16-1 ATS in the last 23 meetings in Oklahoma City and 3-11 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
The Utah Jazz aren't covering numbers the way we're used to seeing, but they're still clearly the better team here, and this line is more of an indication of how bad things have gotten for OKC. The Oklahoma City Thunder are losing their last five games by an average of 12.4 points and allowing 51.3 percent shooting from the field. While OKC is still very profitable against the number, it's hard to get behind those numbers and the recent form. It's the Jazz or pass for me.
