The Warriors come into Game 3 with a 2-0 cushion already, but the Jazz will be hoping now that the series has shifted to Salt Lake City, that the tides can turn their way.
This is as close to a must-win game as you can get for Utah. If they slip to a third straight defeat here tonight, they would face elimination in front of their home fans in Game 4. However, that’s exactly what the Warriors will be shooting for; a complete sweep to get things over as soon as possible, and get as much rest and reserve energy for the Western Conference Final.
Golden State will be happy with how things have gone so far. Even though they’ve had to fight for it, they have managed two relatively comfortable wins at home through Games 1 and 2. However, now the big test comes, and we will see whether they can maintain their momentum on the road.
Utah simply must turn things around tonight and get the win at all costs. If they can get things back to 2-1, then they are guaranteed to make it back to Golden State in Game 5. Although ideally they will want to claim two home wins in Games 3 and 4 to level things up. If that does happen it would turn the series into effectively a “best of 3” shoot out in Games 5 through 7. Even then the Warriors would have the edge with two of the three games scheduled to take place in Golden State.
