The Golden State Warriors will be trying to extend a winning streak on Thursday when they take on the Utah Jazz at Oracle Arena.

ABOUT THE JAZZ: Hayward scored 20 or more points on five occasions during the seven-game first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers but was a shaky 4-of-15 in the opener against the Warriors. “I didn’t feel like Gordon was hesitant to shoot,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder told reporters. “They did a good job trying to limit his looks. But the couple clean ones he got, he’s been making those, and I would anticipate him making those.” Johnson tallied just 11 points in Game 1 and Utah needs a better showing from point guard George Hill, who had just seven points in the opener after averaging 16.9 points in the series against the Clippers.

ABOUT THE WARRIORS: Curry (left ankle) suffered an injury during Game 1 and missed practice on Wednesday but isn’t expected to be hampered in terms of Game 2. He only played 21 seconds in the final quarter and insisted after the contest that it was “just routine maintenance” and “it’s nothing to worry about.” Small forward Kevin Durant scored 17 points in the opener and looks nearly fully recovered from the calf injury that caused him to miss two games in the first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Oddsmakers currently have the Warriors listed as 12-point favorites versus the Jazz, while the game’s total is sitting at 206.

The Golden State Warriors controlled the flow in the opener of the Western Conference semifinals and look to take a 2-0 lead when they host the Utah Jazz on Thursday. The Warriors didn’t look rusty in Monday’s 106-94 victory, a contest in which they limited Utah star forward Gordon Hayward to 12 points.

Top-seeded Golden State committed just seven turnovers while forcing 14 in the opener as it overcame a shoddy 7-of-29 performance from 3-point range to post the victory. “That is huge for us to win the possession game against a team that loves to slow it down, and is methodical on offense,” Warriors point guard Stephen Curry said during the postgame press conference. “We had to value each possession offensively on our end, make them work, but not give them any freebies.” Fifth-seeded Utah never kicked its offense in gear with Hayward and postseason standout Joe Johnson struggling, and center Rudy Gobert was the club’s high scorer with 13 points. “We just didn’t execute like we wanted to and missed some shots,” Hayward said during postgame festivities. “So definitely not the way we wanted to start, but just one game. Have to figure something out and be ready for the next one.”

In their last action, Golden State was a 106-94 winner at home against the Jazz. They failed to cover the -13-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (200) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.

Utah was a 106-94 loser in its last match on the road against the Warriors. They covered the +13-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 200 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
