Game Overview

The Utah Jazz (24-24) will go head-to-head with the New York Knicks (30-17) on January 30, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. EST. In this matchup, both teams will be playing on back-to-back nights, but the Jazz come into this game with an advantage as they played in New York last night, while the Knicks had to travel from Charlotte. Additionally, the absence of Julius Randle in the Knicks lineup adds an intriguing dynamic to this contest. In this comprehensive preview, we'll examine key player statistics, recent team performances, and the factors influencing our prediction.

 

Team Statistics

Utah Jazz

The Jazz, with a record of 24-24, have been competitive, especially on the road (9-18). Leading the team, L. Markkanen contributes 24.0 points per game with an impressive 87.3% field goal percentage.

New York Knicks

The Knicks, standing at 30-17, have been solid at home (16-5). J. Brunson has been a key player, averaging 26.6 points per game with a 48.0% field goal percentage.

 

Injuries and Player Matchups

Utah Jazz

The Jazz enter this game without any injured players, providing them with a full roster for the matchup.

New York Knicks

The Knicks will be missing key players, including Evan Fournier and OG Anunoby, who are listed as game-time decisions. Notably, Julius Randle is ruled out until February 22, and Duane Washington Jr. is listed as a game-time decision for February 1.

 

Recent Performances

Utah Jazz

The Jazz secured a victory against CHA with a score of 134-122 in their last game. Despite a mixed recent performance, they aim to capitalize on the advantage of playing in New York the previous night.

New York Knicks

The Knicks, coming off a win against MIA with a score of 125-109, have been performing well. However, the absence of Julius Randle could impact their overall team dynamics.

 

Prediction

Considering the Jazz's recent game in New York, the Knicks' travel fatigue, and the absence of Julius Randle, our prediction leans towards the Utah Jazz covering the +4.5 points spread. The Jazz may take advantage of the Knicks' potential tiredness and capitalize on their recent form to make this game competitive.

 

Pick: Utah Jazz +4.5.
