The Warriors and Jazz both looked uninspired in their first games of the season. Now they’ll face each other in the tough altitude of Utah.

Moore: What I’m Watching for Tonight

Utah was genuinely challenged in its first game by the Kings. As is often the case, if you bring an A-effort vs. the Jazz, you’ll be in a position to win. They make you want to quit with their physicality and precision, but if you fight through, you’ll give yourself a chance. Ricky Rubio was benched in the second half of that first game, with Dante Exum showing out on both ends to help Utah win.

The big key here is how much the Warriors depend on cuts for their offense. They are constantly manipulating the defense to draw defenders out and then they punish them with smart cuts.
