Predict the Score: Jazz vs Suns 11/1/2013

The Purple and Blues site was down for most of the day on Wednesday making it so there wasn’t enough time to predict the score.  Three people got their picks in so the score goes like this:

Josh Haslam: 5 points

Steven James: 3 points

Robby Barlow: 1 point

The top 3 closest to the final score get points as seen above.  The winner at the end of the season will get a decent sized prize to be determined by the all-star break.  If you want to play just leave your guess in the comments below.

Utah Jazz vs Phoenix Suns 11/1/2013

This is the first game (already) against former Jazz great Jeff Hornacek and his team of “tanking?” Suns.  The Suns did get a victory in Phoenix against the Blazers on Wednesday winning 104-91.  The Suns might be better than we think.  On the flip side the Jazz kept it interesting all night against the Thunder losing by just 3 101-98 even after Durant scored 42 points.

The way I see it is the Jazz have lost 8 games in a row including preseason and will come get this one.  The bigs will be too much for the Suns bigs and the Jazz have a more talented team.  The downside for the Jazz is it is on the road where they struggle year in and year out.  That being said it should be a good game.

My Prediction: Jazz 91- Suns 89

    This game is In Phoenix, after the past couple of seasons of away game results that suggests that the Jazz could lose this one.

    But on paper the Suns should be a team that the Jazz could and should beat.

    The Jazz played well in parts against OKC, but the comeback to make it close without the end result might have taken a lot out of the guys. Do the young players take the positives from the game or let the disappointment linger?

    I think ultimately it will be close, and both games will look to get a result against a team that isn’t expect to win much this season. With Gortat gone the Jazz should have the edge on amongst the Bigs. The Suns have the edge with not one but two PG’s to choose from, whilst the Jazz just have backup caliber players there.

    I think this is a game that will be a tight, scrappy, sometimes downright ugly, affair and the winner will win with less than 4 points. I’m going with Jazz with 2, that might be my heart speaking.
