Our NBA Free Pick for the Day gets right on point with a team playing in a back to back game. Detroit (1-0) came in like gangbusters and really gave Atlanta little chance. Now they have to lug it all the way back home and face a rested Utah Jazz team. Utah had established an defensive presence near the end of last year. The line has moved from the Pistons as a home favorite to the roll of underdog. HRWager will now weigh in on this with our Free Pick of the Day.
NBA Free Pick : Heights
Local rags in Utah are speculating when their local team can put three seven footers on the floor at the same time. Serious notes then commence on the perspective chance that their young players can jump to a near all star level.
- Derrick Favors
- Rudy Gobert
Now the Jazz also have to cope with the ACL tear of Exum. Good news on this is that this happened two months ago. Utah has decided to introduce a wing attack more focused on Raul Neto and Trey Burke. Usually coming out of the gate with a variety of options and some indecision is not beneficial, they hit a good spot against Detroit.
Lack of Game Planning
No one would accuse Van Gundy in not putting the effort to try and break the Jazz. However with the Hawks being a conference opponent, most of the immediate focus was put on them. Not only this but being on the back to back takes a toll on the defensive effort. Since this is a valued part of the Pistons winning combination, it is reasonable to see the market move towards the Jazz.
